FD-147 Rusalka

In Slavic mythology, a rusalka is a water nymph, similar to her Celtic and Germanic sisters. Several operas have been written about the rusalki, the most famous in 1901 by Antonín Dvorák. In the 1800s, two other composers wrote operas named Rusalka: Alexander Dargomyzhsky and Henri Duparc, though Duparc never finished his.

My Rusalka is a triangular shawl that I designed to take advantage of a 5-color gradient yarn set. It is knit from the top center beginning with a tab cast on, and grows out and down with every right-side row.
