Product details

The Peacock's Tale is the first in the Oriental Tales series, and is highly customisable, so the knitter can tell their own tale.

Adaptable, modular, and fun, this is a pattern that wants to be played with.

Begin with the smallest feathers, progressing through larger and more lacy feathers as you move towards the dramatic edging.

Choose any number of repeats of each feather size, add beads if your peacock really wants to attract attention (and most do!)

Then end the tale in your own way, either with straight feathers radiating outward, (as in my own shawl), or by taking the alternating path, and creating a fan of feathers with shimmering eyelets.

Extend, repeat, switch from one edge to the other, as you please.

Ideal for gradients, eye-catching in solids and semi-solids, or try a variegated yarn to create a peacock in dappled light.

Tested in a range of light lace to heavy fingering.

Can be worked entirely from written pattern, or chart with some notes.
