Basic Skills Necessary:

  • ch, sc, hdc, dc, tr, increase, decrease, sl st

Pattern Description:

This is my Beautiful Black Swan that will be the second in line in my eBook on birds. Many more species to come and many more books to come as well. ~~~ This beauty is rare. Therefore, when you come across her floating by in the pond under the leaves of a lily, you really must take notice! ~~~ She even has space on her back for baby chicks if you're so inclined to make a gaggle of these beauties.


To be perfectly honest I never pay attention to the gauge when doing critters. Just know that if you use a thicker yarn and bigger hook, you're going to get a bigger critter (which is actually a great way to get a Mama or Papa critter!)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 9'' long, 8" tall


  • 1/2 skein of Red Heart Super Saver "Black"
  • 1/2 skein Premier Yarn Norville Collection Serenity Sock Yarn "Violas"

You Will Also Need:

  • chenille stem
