"Heracles" a lace scarf
Heracles name comes from Hēra, “Hera”, and kleos, “glory”, born
Alcaeus, was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and
Alcmene (and half-brother) of Perseus. He was the greatest of the Greek
heroes, a paragon of masculinity, and the ancestor of royal clans.
A lace scarf in my series of Men lace attire. It is a unisex item and
a timeless piece. It has strong, yet delicate, lines to appease the
muses. Embrace the divine spark within you and wear it with pride.
This project may be any size. You may use different yarns and
different size needles. It is a fun project. I have found that it is
always good to count your stitches. Whenever I am missing a stitch it is
usually a yarn over that fell off. You will always have 41 stitches.
