In the ancient world thyme was associated with healing, bravery, and courage. A sprig of thyme was once used in roman times and the middle ages as a gift for men going into war. They would attach the sprigs as a visible sign of honor, bravery, and courage.
Today the relevance of the being courageous bears significance everyday. Courage may require you to speak out against wrongs. Courage may require you to face the challenges of your day when you feel like giving in. Living bravely means so many things. But when you knit this slow growing shawl you will learn to face your fears, your challenges, the monsters in your life with bravery.
The Thyme shawl will encourage the wearer to life life bravely regardless of your circumstances. In times of great need or trial we are called to step forward and live out our calling with courage.
Knit the thyme shawl as you take steps to embrace bravery and courage in your life. Wrap in around your shoulders through the uncertain circumstances in your life. When you knit this shawl knit with the intention of bravery and courage.
This asymmetrical triangle shawl features alternating sections of stockinette stripes, and a textured motif. A lacey leaf border is added at the end of the shawl and then then picked up and knit along the lower edge. The main body of the shawl works well with a variegated yarn.
