How to knit the Feather Lace stitch knitting pattern

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the Feather Lace stitch pattern, plus a children’s scarf (up to eight years of age).

Why? Because this is a great project, ideal for beginners.

First of all, the Feather Lace knitting stitch is a two-row repeat pattern, one of those being a plain purl row. 

Secondly, it’s easy, quick, and fun to knit, this scarf only takes one ball of yarn.

Furthermore, you can make it wider and/or longer, to knit an adult scarf. Follow this tutorial to know exactly the measurements, how many stitches to cast on, and how much yarn will be needed, using the materials you prefer!

To sum up, I think you’re going to enjoy knitting this feather lace stitch!
