I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Triton Lepides Scarf 2018

Triton’s Lepides


 Triton (/ˈtraɪtən/; Greek: Τρίτων Tritōn) is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively, and is herald for his father. He is usually represented as a merman with his lower body cover in Lepides or animal scales.
A playful scarf like Lepides. This scarf is meant to be done without having to block it much. It is one in my series of attire for men, but it is unisex with a timeless look. It has a wonderful flow that will allow you to embrace the divine spark within you and wear it with pride.
