Feather and Fan

The other day I needed something to do and so I cast on for a sample of Feather & Fan stitch, as favorited on Ravelry. It was incredibly easy. So off I went to look for someplace to verify my instincts on what the repeats would be to widen it, and found this post.

I really like what this person has done with the pattern. Apparently it’s done on 4 mm circular needles with fingering weight yarn. When I was working my sample it was on 3.25 mm needles and leftover sock yarn. I really don’t like that sock yarn (who wears acrylic socks?!?!), but it was an interesting experience. Now I want to cast on a laceweight yarn on circulars for my next project ^_^; especially given that it’ll be warm sooner than later and I could use a light shawl…Irish Moss Stitch can wait just a little bit, I have some time before it gets very cold again.
