Do you ever wish you could put on a pair of wings, fly away and soar among the clouds? Whilst Featherfall doesn’t have the magic to make you fly, it does weave a spell with its dreamy, featherlight lace pattern that tessellates through the body like overlapping feathers. Despite the intricate appearance, the lace is simple and intuitive thanks to clearly-defined spines. This shawl is the perfect project for a meditative solo flight with your needles.
Featherfall is a top-down crescent shawl designed for laceweight yarn. A single bead tips each large feather, and chevrons of beads enhance the open lace along the border, lending a bit of weight to help you feel grounded yet light as air.
