Inspired by bird wings, this scarf is designed to let you soar above the winter chill. The feather patterned scarf curves up to a point at each end to create the shape of a wing. You can also fold your scarf into the shape of a flying bird, as shown in the cover photo. Instructions are for worsted weight yarn and have 2 cast on counts which will allow for several size and color options. Instructions for altering the size and number of colors in the pattern along with other helpful hints are included in the pattern. Samples are shown in 4 and 5 Colors.

This project contains many types of stacked stitches and is best suited for advanced knitters. Videos of the included techniques can be found on my YouTube channel.
