The Nereids are sea nymphs, symbolizing everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. They were represented as very beautiful girls, dressed in silk robes trimmed with gold.
The shawl features rows of golden spirals on a blue background, similar to sea foam. Wearing this shawl will make you feel like a real sea nymph!
The spirals are small colorful modules worked using just one color at a time and joined seamlessly while knitting. They are arranged in groups worked sideways.
Joining areas are worked to join the groups of spirals between them (again with no seaming), with perpendicular lines that link one spiral from a group to another from the other group. These golden lines give a different movement to the design, reminiscent of the wake of a ship.
Nereid is a shawl worked in simple garter stitch and still it looks so complex!
