About This Stitch Pattern

The 2 Color Feather and Fan Stitch is a color work variation of the classic lace stitch Feather and Fan. By alternating each pattern repeat, stripes of color highlight the curves of the fan motif. It’s a relatively easy lace stitch and the colorwork addition is simple to include. This is a great pattern from scarves and blankets, or even as an edging for shawls.
