One of the most classic lace patterns in knitting, the little peacock stitch is perfectly charming!

Whether you have been knitting for years or just started learning, the little peacock stitch is a great one to learn. With only six rows to memorize, this pattern is a breeze, even for beginners. All you need to know is stockinette stitch, yarn overs, and k2togs.

If you're familiar with the famous feather and fan stitch, then this one might seem familiar to you. While these two stitches have a lot in common, the little peacock stitch is slightly less textured than feather and fan, which makes it a great and seamless addition to existing patterns. Use this for a shawl or a scarf for something light and breezy to wear, even in the warmer months.
