Honest Woodsman Pullover Knitting Pattern Download
Losing his axe in a river, a woodsman in Aesop's Fables weeps at the loss of his livelihood. Hermes appears and, hearing the woodcutter's story, dives into the lake. He brings up a golden axe and asks if this is the one that was lost, but the woodcutter refuses it, saying that his had been ordinary. Hermes does the same with a silver axe, but the woodsman refuses again. Hermes brings up the woodcutter's axe and gives him the other two as a reward for his honesty. Knit this sweater and enjoy remembering the tale that inspired it.
