Summertime Shawl
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

Sharing a photo of the shawl I knitted! It uses a "feather and fan" design (which I'm finding out I really love). The yarn is also a fun self-striping pattern, plus a lighter weight for a nice soft summery feel.

Very pretty! Love the colors.

What kind of yarn did you use? I'm not sure I'd ever need a summer shawl in Texas, but it might work for a spring or fall shawl.

Feather and fan is such fun to knit and so pretty. You summer shawl is a perfect example, light and lovely. Enjoy wearing it!

Happy to share the website! Feather and Fan Scarf

It's a little further than half-way down the page, and even though a few of her patterns are for sale, this one's free. (The pattern is also on Ravelry.) She made a scarf, but for a shawl, I cast on 76 stitches and made it longer.

Antares, the yarn I used was JoAnn's Sensations "Breeze", weight category 3. It only took one skein (595 yds).

The yarn variations really played nice with the feather-fan pattern stitch! Great work!
