The Feather Stitch is similar to a cluster or a mixed cluster stitch. It’s all about where you are inserting your hook. It gives gorgeous texture and a bit of bulk for warm winter items.

You will want to stick multiples of 2 + 1 for your starting chain.

Here are the steps written out with step-by-step with photos.
