Lieutenant’s Heart is the Swedish term for bleeding heart flowers. The name comes from an old legend in which a young lieutenant tries to woo a beautiful lady. She refuses him, and he throws himself upon his sword.
Ostrich feathers have been used for decades to make feather dusters. In this design, I’ve paired an ostrich plume stitch pattern with a lovely mohair/silk yarn to create a light-as-a-feather triangular scarf.
