The Aztec god Quetzalcoatl was associated with the wind, the planet Venus, arts, crafts, and knowledge. This design is based on an image from the Codex Nuttall.
I used this design to embroider the top of a pillow (about 16x20 inches / 40 x 50 cm). I have charted the design for knitting but it could also be used for an embroidery.
I started knitting & sewing as a child so I've tried a variety of techniques. A couple of years ago I started writing up some of my designs for others to enjoy.
