Mythos Another Way


When I designed Mythos I REALLY wanted to make it twice, one in the version I got done in time, and a larger size in Schaefer's Andrea (yummy 100% cultivated laceweight silk) held double.  There was no way I could get both done in time so I sent out a desperate e-mail to see which of my model knitters was crazy enough to accept the challenge.  Colleen responded first, though I think she lived to regret this, and knit this STUNNING version of Mythos for me.




Pattern: Mythos
Yarn: Schaefer Yarn Andrea held double
Color: Ellen Swallow Richards
Size: Large

One of things I LOVE about Mythos is that it is designed to fit many different body types and sizes and I'm not sure the original pictures accurately portrayed that.  Thanks Colleen for helping me make it happen!!!!! 

And thanks to my model and dear friend Diana who got up at the crack of dawn looking GORGEOUS for out photoshoot!


  1. You're right, that lighting is absolutely worth getting up early for! Amazing!

  2. WOW! I can't believe I knit that! It looks so great on her (if I do say so myself) I can't wait to knit one for me

  3. Oh, I like this one even better!! Will you be publishing the pattern. (Yes, I am lazy.)

  4. Thanks Everyone! ELizabeth- the pattern is available on Knitty:

  5. Wow, that was definitely worth the effort all around. I liked the pattern on Knitty but LOVE it like this. Also the photo in the early light is just perfect.I hope you took your friend the model out for breakfast as her reward!
