Pattern Description:

Jian is the first of four patterns included in the Birds of Mythology ebook released as part of the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project for May 2012.

In Chinese mythology, the Jian bird has only one eye and one wingby itself, it cannot function. But as a pair, inseparable and completely dependent on each other, the Jian could soar. With a bold, feathery center panel, Jian will encourage your fingers to fly. And what better argument against the dreaded "second sock syndrome?"
