For each panel pm in 105 (111, 117, 117) st (back), leaving 106 (112, 118, 118) sts for the front of the piece. Double-check count for accuracy.
Cut a piece of yarn 300″ in length. Weave each end of the yarn with a yarn needle through marked sts. Make sure that the yarn is pulled through evenly. Lace-up the back. The last few stitches gradually lace so that it tightens, closing in the gap. See the video for a demonstration.

Use all 3 strands with a 5.5mm hook and make a long chain. leave a starting and finishing tail of approx. 8″. Tail is used as the base for the feather. With tails make a knot leaving approx. 2.5″ space between belt chain and knot. Cut 48 pieces of yarn 8″ in length per feather (96 total). Knot 2 pieces together, alternate knot direction. Fill in the 2.5″ gap, and cut more pieces if needed. Watch the Video tutorial for a knotting demonstration.
Trim to make a feather shape or cut out a cardboard template. Tape the top of the feather to the template and trim the feather.
Weave the belt through cluster shells. Count shells up from the bottom and across from the opening so that belt is positioned evenly. Do the same for the back. The belt placement can easily be adjusted for size. Shown 11 shells from the bottom and 5 shells from the inside edge/back seam. Steam to finish.
