As a child I was always captivated by the legend of the Firebird, so I decided to draw some Firebirds of my own for this cardigan. I gave my neatly rounded birds a slight touch of vanity, as they turn their heads around to get a better look at their curled tail feathers. Above and around them are leaves which curve to match their bodies. As they are Firebirds, I used colours which have a hint of flame about them – Clover, Wild Orchid, Sundew and Corncrake. For the background I placed them in a rich garden of Machair, Bogbean, Lapwing and Calluna. The topmost leaves above the birds are also worked in Machair with a Calluna background and this helps to carry the repeat upwards.
