I've created an etsy treasury, featuring the crocheted and knitted cranes at the top:
Please visit and give it some love!
I'm finishing work on the third crane pattern. This one is 2 needle and will stack from the top. The body is a slanted sides basket shape. Here are some teasers of the doubled worsted weight knit on size 8 needles:
Wings and body from top, showing I cord folding lines for wings
Wings and body from bottom, showing I cord folding lines for base
Picking up stitches for the small ends that will become neck and head
Working side to side, picking up side stitches to increase taper of the basket body
Knitting last stitch together with picked up stitch from side once taper increases are done
This pattern will have 3 sizes - size 1 needles with fingering weight yarn, size 3 needles with worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles with doubled worsted weight yarn. More pictures and pattern to follow.
