Ostrich feathers have been used for decades to make feather dusters. In this design, I’ve paired an ostrich plume stitch pattern with a lovely mohair/silk yarn to create a light-as-a-feather triangular scarf.

The instructions are presented in both chart and written (row-by-row) form. Choose your favorite method.

This project is appropriate for beginning lace knitters, but I would recommend substituting a non-mohair yarn.

It is easy to add more repeats to make a shawl.
