Tiny Feathers Stitch

The Tiny Feathers stitch is a lace stitch which resembles little feathers, hence the name. Knitted in a multiple of six stitches plus one, this stitch is an eight row repeat and is rated as intermediate. Once complete, the Tiny Feathers stitch, like other lace stitches, requires blocking. Its excellent drape makes it perfect for light weight projects such as Spring and Summer knits.
