Fionnuala, an Irish maid of legend who was turned into a swan by her stepmother until she was saved by marrying Lairgren, when the curse was broken and she was returned to human form . Can you see her feathers and the flowing water of her home while she lived as a swan? Can you see the seeds and the leaves of the plants she ate before the curse was broken? I can, and a cowl made of her feathers will be sure to keep your neck toasty in the cold months ahead!
Knit with beads or without, it is equally gorgeous!
