I am catching up on all kinds of things that have gotten set aside for one reason or another.
One of those things is to finally get my pattern for the Goddess Artemis and her animal companions posted to my etsy shop.
The Knitted Artemis doll and her animal companions (resting rabbit, mouse and beaver) pdf pattern has complete charts with instructions for how to knit the Goddess Artemis.
I based the design on a painting on a clay pot that has been dated as 7th century BC. It was discovered in Boetia, which was part of Greece in that time.
The Goddess Artemis is the protector of the wild spaces and is always accompanied by animal companions, which is why she has them with her in this pattern. Because the wild places on the planet are so precious, inviting Artemis energy to protect them is a very good idea.
The finished size of the Artemis doll and her animals is determined by the thickness of the yarns that you use and the size of the needles that you knit with.
The doll in the photo was knitted with sock yarn and 2.5 mm knitting needles.
Here’s the LINK to the pattern:
