PATTERN DETAILS

Rhadamanthys was the wise mythological Greek king who judged the dead and ruled the Fortunate Isles, where those heroes who had thrice been received into the Elysian Fields resided. Celebrate three blessings with this easy, sideways-knit sweater; it is knit in one piece with no seaming, requires no finishing, and is worked all in garter stitch. Three turning points in the short row shaping delineate body, yoke and collar, creating a shapely fit around the upper body. The garter stitch and extended front panels make it suitable for many shapes and sizes; written in eleven sizes, Rhadamanthys may be further customized in length or circumference.
