Sisyphus, king of Ephyra, was condemned by the gods to roll a boulder to the top of a hill for all eternity, only to have it roll back down every time he got near the top. The idea of this constant, fruitless struggle translates well to colorwork but the theme has no bearing on the actual knitting. The dead simple geometric images make for a super easy knit, even for knitters who have little to no experience with stranded knitting. These are an excellent pick for those who are just cutting their teeth on colorwork!
The sample is knit with Knit Picks Palette, which comes in a bazillion different colors to choose from. I love the sunset feel of the Cornmeal and Forest Heather seen here!
