The Knitted Swan Pattern

She is finished at last, please meet Miss Rebecca, the swan…
Such an elegant lady, as she glides up and down the pond…
I have knitted her in double knitting wool with 4mm needles. She is knitted in the round, I have used the magic loop technique, but DPNs (double pointed needles would be perfect too) Her beak is woven onto a loop on her head. The pattern has plenty of photos to guide you through the creative process.

Her pattern is avaliable on my Etsy shop and I will be uploading it to my Ravelry and Craftsy stores soon too.
Have a magical day
Warmly
Linda

    Miss Rebecca is so graceful. I must make her for my ex-husband’s new wife. They have a cottage and there are swans on the lake. She will look so pretty sitting on the table. Linda, you never cease to amaze me with your creations.

    Everytime you put out another of your animal patterns it just drives me crazy! I’m in awe of how you ‘see’ an animal and then manipulate the stitches to be so RIGHT!! Your swan is as wonderful as all of the rest of you creations.

    Blessings, Debbie

    So elegant. I really love your little knit animal friends. I have made a few and it is great to see my girls play with them! Thank you!

    I’m in the midst of a mamma4earth pattern knitting marathon, and now you’ve done gone and got me wanting MORE patterns!

      She’s just like that. She can’t help herself.

    Linda, I am in love with Miss Rebecca. I am still working on some penguins (hoping to post the completed project on the next stash bash update at the end of the month) and then it is hedgehogs, but then OH YES THEN I will be back for the swan (unless of course I win her tomorrow * smiles*)
    Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us.

    Darling!! Her little wings turned out perfect! You’ve so much talent!!!

  13. Chiska February 24, 2012 at 2:50 am #

    What a beautiful swan! Thanks so much for a lovely interlude in my day.

  14. Donna February 24, 2012 at 3:04 am #

    Well, I just bought yarn for the Suffolk sheep and the colors would match…so, I could use a pattern for Miss Rebecca!

    • K February 25, 2012 at 6:50 am #

      Do it. we can talk you through magic loop. It’s a little complex, but it’s doable. But make your sheep first.

  15. Anna February 24, 2012 at 3:59 am #

    She’s BEAUTIFUL! I truly admire your talent and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

    Your patterns never fail to impress!

  18. Paula W February 24, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    I am intrigued by how you said you did the beak. “Her beak is woven onto a loop on her head.” I will have to get this pattern even if I don’t make it right away just to see how the beak was done!!!

  19. Stephanie @ SKWestDesigns February 24, 2012 at 5:46 pm #

    Amazing! I love your swan and even though I am just learning to knit I would love to try this pattern. You are very creative with all of your patterns.

  20. Julie February 24, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    Your animal patterns are absolutely gorgeous! I’d love to see your creative process as you design them.

  21. Beathag February 24, 2012 at 10:08 pm #

    I really want to knit some of these for my classmates at the ballet! I think it is the best little mini something for them!

    Your swan pattern is beautiful as usual. I’m always amazed by your creations

  23. K February 25, 2012 at 6:48 am #

    The clever girl, at it again. Honey – what lovely lines you have given her. The curves of the wing are just eloquent. And, of course, you not only capture the character, but add just enough detail to make the design delicious. Wonderful.
