Peacock Feathers Stole
The Peacock Feathers Stole is a stylized version of a
peacock’s tail in full display, from the small feathers at the centre, or top of the peacock’s back, down to the dramatic sweep of the tail. You’ll truly be able to “strut your stuff” when you wear this stole!
This stole for lace knitting is worked in stocking stitch by casting on at the centre back, then working to one end where a crochet cast off creates a delicate, lacy finish. Then stitches are picked up at the centre back cast on and the other half is worked the same. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Intermediate or Experienced lace knitters.
