I have a love/hate relationship with this scarf, it's so pretty, yet soo hideous. I do, however, love the Red Heart Strata self-striping yarns. I don't know how they do it!

i followed the pattern my best friend lady_cyanide came up with:

CO 24
Knit one row.
Feather & Fan Pattern:
1) [(K2tog) twice, (K1, yo) 4 times] to end.
2) K
3) K
4) P

Continue until scarf is desired length, or like the lady and I, until you go through the whole skein of Strata (she used Passion on US 10's, I used Surf on US 9's)





i also knitted a black seed stitch belt to go with my cute black shirt i wore out to father's day lunch.





I cut up an old belt that didn't fit me and stole the buckle from it. for the belt, i used US 8 and CO 9, seed stitch until it was a few inches longer than my waist/hips. i attached it to the buckle and sewed it on. then i made a little belt loop by CO 3 st and doing seed until about 1 1/2-2", then sewed it a little past the buckle, and voila!

lemme know what y'all think or if you need clarification on the instructions, and please post pics if you make either!

I love the feather and fan scarf! I started one because I loved the stitch pattern, but then it became to repetitive for me. Cheesy

yeah, i had the same problem with a feather & fan blanket i was making once upon a time, but i was more motivated to finish this one since i bought the yarn just for it and it was turning out so well with the stripes. also, i had the designer of the scarf that inspired it sitting next to me the whole time i was making it, lol. that's why you've seen so many things go up on here recently by lady_cyanide and myself, she's been at my house almost nonstop for the past week and a half! we get so much done when we're knitting together and pitching ideas at each other, it really brings me out of my funk of not finishing anything. that's a good tip to those who love to knit but get bored with it or never finish anything, find someone to knit with! it helps!

Lucky! I wish I could craft with a craftster IRL.
