ERRATA: On the bird charts (Charts D and E), the legend should indicate dots as Knit on the WS and Purl on the RS, while empty boxes are Purl on the WS and Knit on the RS. On the right side of the fabric, the birds should appear in stockinette stitch on a field of reverse stockinette. Row 1 of both charts is a WS row.

Apologies for the mistake!

Before it was the Pearl District, the neighborhood was dominated by the Lovejoy Bridge ramp whose columns were decorated with whimsical drawings. Two of the birds depicted on the columns inspired this design. Click for more information.
