Pattern for download

Price: 7,50 USD (Incl. Swedish VAT. Final VAT amount depends on the buyer's country.)

The stylized bird on the sweater Sånga Fågelkrans is inspired by a stencil-made motif from the vaulted ceilings of Sånga church. Several birds are flying up there amongst saints, biblical scenes, stylized flowers and climbing vines. Some birds perch on top of a vine, like a flower on a stem. Sånga Fågelkrans means Bird Wreath from Sånga in swedish.

Because of the height of the bird motif, the pattern has two sizes only: age 2-3 years and 8-9 years. The smaller size has room for two birds on the front of the sweater and the larger holds three.

The pattern includes charts, sewing on machine and cutting for sleeve openings.
