Notes

My second design! If you have any questions about the pattern, please feel free to contact me.

This shawl was knit at home, on the road in Washington and Oregon, in Portland, at Sock Summit, and while sitting on the beach at the coast in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Notes: knitting this did take the entire skein.

If you’d like to change the size of the shawl, there are two simple ways:

  1. To make it larger, keep knitting rows 1 - 10 of the feather and fan section until desired size. Or, if you have a smaller skein than the pattern calls for but don’t want to decrease the garter st section, just knit the feather and fan pattern until you run out of yarn.

  2. The feather and fan pattern takes 18 sts, so if you want to decrease or increase the size of the pattern it’s easy. And I’ll even do the math for you:

At the beginning of the lace section in the original pattern there are 6 repeats of the feather and fan section on each side.

Smaller version: Knit garter st section to 193 sts, then start feather and fan border.

Larger versions:

7 F&F repeats: Knit garter st section to 265 sts, then start feather and fan border.

8 F&F repeats: Knit garter st section to 301 sts, then start feather and fan border.

9 F&F repeats: Knit garter st section to 337 sts, then start feather and fan border.

10 F&F repeats: Knit garter st section to 373 sts, then start feather and fan border.
