My Greek Swan, a Bohus reproduction of the Large Swan design, is coming along swimmingly, as befits a project inspired by waterfowl.
Also fitting, given the sculptural beauty of a swan gliding across the water, is the way the many purl stitches in this design carve a 3-dimensional shape into the fabric. Each feather motif pops forward because it is outlined by purl stitches.
More purls surround the motifs that recall swan’s feet. That the yarn used in the feet is slightly heavier weight 100% wool yarn, rather than the angora/wool blend of the rest of the hat, further enhances the effect.
My goal is to finish this up before the last swimming event is over, so I’ll sign off now and get on with it. I hope you are making equally good progress on your Ravellenic projects!
