Bird of Paradise

September 2011
Lace ?
4 stitches and 4 rows = 1 inch
US 8 - 5.0 mm
328 - 437 yards (300 - 400 m)
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

ERRATA: 24.9.11 - its come to light that I’ve said all wrong side rows are knit rows unless otherwise stated. Please read PURL IN THIS INSTANCE. I will post a new copy of the pattern when I return from hols around 30th Sept, 2011. Thank you!

This garment is incredibly feather light weighing in at just over 40 grams and uses just short of 400 metres of my Outback Lace Yarn. The tension is largely unimportant as the garment is blocked at the end to specific dimension. You may find it easier to use stitch markers between each repeat on the first few rows until the “Feathers” are set in place. A great quick little make and ideal for presents or just for spoiling yourself with!

I hope you enjoy both making and wearing it, but please note this pattern has not been tested by other knitters and it may be that there could be errors contained within. It is offered for free on this basis. Thank you!
