Hmm, the Rooster c2c graph. I pretty much knew nothing about this particular Zoodiacs design, and almost had no where to start. I did a lot of googling of roosters, and what I found out is that not many of them are very cute. How do I make a Rooster that doesn’t look like a duck, or a chicken? My daughter can’t really tell the difference between all the farm fowl, and there are so many interpretations of each one. A swan or a white duck? A chicken or a fat bird or a turkey? What does a rooster have that a hen does not? I think I was able to capture the main characteristics of a rooster, with the thingie on his head, and the thingie (wattle? Is that a turkey thing?) under his chin and of course, the big bold feathers that have adorned so many hats.
On this design, I started on the bottom right corner and worked my way up to the top left corner. I could feel my gauge loosening once all the color changes were over, and there was nothing between me and the end of this square except an expanse of green. He’s number 8 in my series – you can find all the others on my Zoodiacs page. I hope you like him!

If you missed a Zoodiacs post, you can always find all of the graphs available on my Zoodiacs page. I’ll be adding new animals there, as well as fleshing out different ideas related to the Zoodiacs.
