The Firebirds design was inspired by the jewel like colours of an opulent summer garden set against a rich background of greens. The flamboyant firebirds dance first one way and then the other above a deep rib. This design is more challenging, and is intended for an intermediate or advanced knitter. The chart pattern requires occasional weaving in over long stretches, and setting the pattern for each new band takes a little concentration. It is the perfect design to hone your stranded knitting skills while making a garment that allows you to carry the lush colours of summer into the winter.
