Herons in the Snow

Herons in the Snow

This pattern is based on Ohara Koson drawing.
The birds’ legs, beaks, and eyes are embroidered with duplicate stitch afterwards. Only two colors are used when knitting; you’ll need about 50 g. (200 m.) of each color.

Colored spots on the thumbs and palms are embroidered with duplicate stitch.
My special thanks to Craftzone, Mitt, and LoopyKnitter @ Ravelry for the photos.
