Fan Shawl (DK) by Gail Tanquary
will be determined by my patience level ;)
Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm

329 yards in stash

Rosie's Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This is my first time trying a modular pattern.

I finished six modules the first night! I wish there were a way to knit this without cutting the yarn every time. There are quite a few ends to weave in. The knitting itself is really simple!


16 modules done!


24 complete :)


37 finished… I’m adding two extra rows of fans at the top of the shawl to increase the size. I have enough left from the first skein to complete one more fan, then will move on to skein 2!


45 modules complete as well as 2 half modules at the top. I figured out how to knit the half module row without cutting the yarn.

I can’t wait to block the lace. I’ve been affectionately referring to this project as my “ground beef shawl” due to the uncanny resemblance…


Blocking the shawl now! I can’t wait to take some FO photos… :)

45 modules = 90 ends to weave in, plus the half module row. I did my best to weave them in as I went along, so it wasn’t too bad.

Finished dimensions: 71” wide by 24” deep
