Feather pattern published in Inside Crochet!September 7, 2011 at 4:32 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Crochet a “Feather in Your Cap!” Adding fabulous flair to fedoras, cloches, berets, bike helmets, cowgirl hats, highland balmorals, bags and backpacks and more, these extravagant feathers pay homage to the Black Grouse, a declining species in the UK. Two feather shapes are included in the pattern, designed with my knowledge as a wildlife biologist to mimic the size and shape of the Black Grouse’s extravagantly decorative tail feathers. The feather patterns are featured in the August 2011 Issue 20 of Inside Crochet magazine.
To discover how you can help the Black Grouse and other British birds, visit the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds at www.rspb.org.uk.
