After a bit of back and forth (there are so many directions you could take with these blank charts!) I've settled on traditional colours and motifs. I've had this particular bird in mind since before the conception of the West Coast Cardigan! Something tells me it's his time.
I had originally pulled a repetitive motif (above) from the WCC for the top and bottom colourwork bands but decided that it was too geometric and didn't complement the eagle. I'm much happier with my second swatch (below), I think the two go well together.
Would you like to knit along with us?
