This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Note: * Knitty version errata - there is an error in the Final Feather chart! The first k2tog in row 9 should be a knit stitch. (Many thanks to Twinkerbell for the heads up!)*

There is also an error in the materials section for the large shawl - it would require 2 skeins of white and one skein of black - the quantities listed are switched.

The shawl is made up of just two very easy lace motifs. I have gradually increased the size of the first motif, Fir Cone lace, to give the illusion of larger and larger feathers. Then the Fir Cone lace transitions to Feather lace, to add longer feathers to the bottom of the shawl. I designed the charts so that any number of each motif can be worked. Customize your wings – the sky is the limit!

Directions for 3 different sizes are included.
Note: These are approximations, based on how much yarn was used in the samples. Several knitters have reported running out of yarn before completing the edging, so be sure to have a bit extra just in case.
Small - requires approximately 500 yards of a heavy fingering weight yarn, and uses size US6 needles.
Medium - requires approximately 720 yards of a fingering weight yarn, and uses size US3 needles.
Large - requires approximately 1130 yards of a light fingering weight yarn, and uses size US3 needles.

The pdf available from my Ravelry store has written directions for the charts included.
