Peacock Tail #22

I'm sure you've seen this pattern all over the internet and wondered how it was done. Looks complicated but is really very simple. Here's the sample I knitted from The Art of Knitting 1897. I've rewritten and charted the pattern. You can find this on my website.
The drawing to the left is upside down. My swatch shows how it is actually knitted.

Peacock tail compared to F&F
Cindy: this looks as though it solves the issue of the scalloping edges of the F&F. Does it lay as square as the pattern indicates? I can't see the bottom on your swatch.
Very cool.

Re: Peacock tail compared to F&F
Actually it doesn't. If you started with the third row instead of the row 1, it might square off at the end. But the photo is actually upside down from the way it is knitted and I've put my photo in to match it. Probably should turn both around.

Peacock's Tail Pattern
I really like this pattern. It looks fairly easy, yet is still dramatic. Dodie

Thank you for letting me know the link is wrong. I'll get that fixed later but in the meantime, he's the correct link. http://fitterknitter.com/Lace.html
