According to legend, the Firebird is a large bird similar to a peacock, with glowing eyes and majestic plumage which glows with red, orange, and yellow light. A single feather from the Firebird can bring light to a large room.

For knitting, I used Jitterbug, a lovely fingering weight yarn from Colinette. It is made in Wales, which I especially appreciate as I am half Welsh. The reds and oranges in the yarn pool in quite a nice way, reminding me of the brilliant plumage colors of the legendary Firebird.
The cowl can be draped about the neck and shoulders or fasten it to the side with a small shawl pin or nice brooch. I will put up a couple more pictures of it draped to the side and pinned.
