I took the colours, feathers and flowers from the costume and worked some curved shaping into this fine-knit pullover. The contrasting machair-coloured peplum and cuffs are shaped with short rows and then overlaid with a triple-feather pattern on the back and sleeves, whilst the front features an appliquéd flower arrangement.I designed the feather pattern with right and left slanting increases and decreases placed to mimic the structure of individual feathers. The body is shaped to the waist at the side seams and at each side of the central feather pattern on the back and front.

The flower arrangement is made by knitting and felting the individual components, then stitching them together and finally stitching lightly on to the knitted peplum. If you prefer, you can work the peplum with overlaid feathers on the front as on the back, instead of the flower arrangement. The yarn pack contains enough yarn for both options.
