Free Pattern - Feather, Feather and Fan Shawlette
Feather, Feather and Fan Shawlette
Designed by Betty Balcomb
Knit in 1 skein of Heritage (437 yds/100 g - 75% Superwash Merino Wool/25% Nylon)
Betty Balcomb has designed a number of projects for Cascade Yarns. According to Betty: "I set out to knit a simple gently curved shawlet with a lovely bright solid color of Heritage. I had in mind something sort of like Feather and Fan, but not quite since that has been done so many times. I played around with the pattern and came up with this adaptation. It may already be out there is some stitchionary, but I think it is new. I call it Feather and Feather and Fan because the feathery section is about twice as wide as the fan section instead of the usual equal measures. The curve comes from simply changing needle Bsizes. I wear mine draped low on my shoulders and joined with a shawl pin."
