Quoth the raven, nevermore

Knitted raven, with raised wings - first time I've ever knitted a bird in this position. The knitting is pretty simple but the making up needs a little patience as you need to work with wire in the wings, legs and tail to create a framework to hold the bird up. 

Here he is "perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door" as in the Edgar Allan Poe poem. I think once pumpkin season is here, I will take some pumpkin - perching photos too.


  1. Please, please can you tell me where I can buy thus pattern. I assume it is in one of your books but I don't know which one ?

  2. Hi OwlMomma! Just received your message on Pinterest and have replied to you there : )
