Wrap yourself in a big, beautiful scarf and show off your plumage. Tailfeather is a unisex lace scarf with long interlocking feather motifs. The garter-based lace pattern is fast and easy to knit, and looks great on both sides. Two width options are given - I chose the widest for extra cosiness! Skills needed include the Long Tail cast on, knit and purl stitches, and simple lace knitting including centred double decreases. All wrong-side rows are identical, and contain only knit and purl stitches. Both written and charted instructions are included. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl knit simple lace including centred double decreases cast on using the Long Tail method GAUGE 22 sts and 21 rows = 4"/10cm in lace pattern.
