I found this beautiful lace "Feather" pattern on Ravelry. The only problem is that the pattern is only available through a YouTube video and the instructions are in German. I can kind of tell what she's doing by watching her knit, but I'm not near experienced enough to be sure. If someone out there speaks German, or is a more experienced knitter, I need your help desperately!

Have you tried going in to the German community in this forum? It's located in city guides.
I am not German although I live in Germany for 2 years now and I speak German fluently, I still have some trouble understanding the patterns in German. As far as I understood the video, she is explaining the type of wool she used, which is cotton, and she says that the way she is working the pattern is in Knit a row, purl a row. Also at the beginning she says that she has K1, P1. The shape is formed since the beginning. She also says that she purls the first sticht and last stitch.
I haven't finished watching the video, but once I do I will try to clear things for you. Even though I recommend you to post it on the German community.  Have a nice day!  Smiley

Ravelry has a forum called Excuse Me that helps in translating patterns into other languages. If you can find a pattern page for it, there could be a link to a translation too.

Thank you to all who replied. I watched the video quite a few times and I think I was able to decipher the pattern and write it out. If anyone wants my "translation" let me know. Smiley
