About the pattern

Feel like a whimsical fairy in your own feathery cape, using this Tunisian crochet pattern created for experienced crocheters.

The fabric is slightly transparent, as the lacy stitch pattern creates the appearance of feathers.
Each feather is built using short rows and all feathers are identical, making this a meditative project to work on.

Use fluffy yarn for a warm capelet, or a cotton for crisp lace and a summery project.
