I am looking for a pattern for knitting lace fairy wings. So far I have found this, and I am not quite satisfied because a) it is a child's size and I am distinctly not a little girl, heh and b) the wings are tied around the wrists and waist. I, however, am looking for something that can be mounted on/attached to wing-shaped wires instead. I have also seen Allete in Knitty but I think the pattern is kind of...ugly. :D
Any suggestions? If there aren't any existing patterns, any advice on how I could go about making one? I am an intermediate knitter.
