Now you can be a Peacock Girl! Nine feather motifs join to make this airy shawl, reminiscent of those noble birds that we all admire. Starting with the border, this shawl is quickly worked on large needles, so you'll be strutting your stuff in no time. And here's a little trivia... a group of peacocks is called an "ostentation." So if anyone ever tells a Peacock Girl that she looks ostentatious, her proper reply is, "Thank You!"
This single-skein shawl pattern is worked on recommended US Size 11 (8mm) needles, and has a generous wingspan of approximately 62", and a length of approximately 32". Instructions are provided in text and chart.
The sample shawl shown is made from the Blueberry Pie colorway.
