The Peacock Feathers Shawl is a stylized version of a peacock’s tail in full display, from the small feathers at the top of the peacock’s back, down to the dramatic sweep of the tail.

This shawl for lace knitting is worked in stocking stitch by casting on three stitches at the middle top, then increasing to create a triangular shape. After knitting the edging, a crochet cast off is worked to create a delicate, lacy finish.

Recommended for Advanced Intermediate knitters.

Corrections were made to printed patterns as of November 2004. See errata link.
