Pattern Description:

Pure decadence with every
stitch, you will love making this shawl as
much as you will love wearing it. A
perfect marriage of Gelato and La
Boheme give The Peacock Feather
Shawl a wonderful texture and gorgeous
drape. Add a little shimmer and shine to
your clothing ensemble.

The pattern is mostly written in crochet chart as the stitch pattern is easier to understand in this format.

Doing a gauge swatch and WET BLOCKING the swatch is VITAL as the yarn does stretch!
