Notus, the Greek god of the South Winds – bringer of the storms of late Summer and Autumn. In the ancient texts, he is feared as the destroyer of crops and is a danger to travellers with his actions, heralding the end of the summer heat and beginning of the colder months.
The pattern pairs garter stitch and short rows to create a flowing, textured shawl, with a spiralling cabled border echoing ideas and memories of breezy days.
The shawl is asymmetric, forming a right angle triangular shape. The body is knitted first and edged with a sideways knitted on border. I-cord edging trims the shawl, and is worked throughout. Due to the construction of the shawl, the border can be worked in a second colour.
The pattern includes written instructions for the body of the shawl, and full written and charted instructions for the cables.
