Feather and Fan Stitch

The Feather and Fan stitch is a popular lace stitch that looks like a combination of feathers and fans lined up side-by-side across the work. This stitch is rated intermediate but it is on the easier side. The Feather and Fan stitch is a four-row repeat and is knitted in a multiple of eighteen stitches plus two. Just like the Fan stitch, the Feather and Fan stitch’s wave-like characteristics makes it perfect for edgings on sleeves, scarves and many other knitted projects.
