Just like the traditional Feather and Fan Stitch, the Two-Tone Feather and Fan Stitch is knitted in the same manner with the only difference being that the latter involves two colors. The first two rows are knitted in one color while the last two are knitted in another. If you enjoy knitting the Feather and Fan stitch but want to spice it up with multiple color variations, this is the pattern for you!
Multiple of 18sts + 2
Row 1 (RS) (Color A): knit.
Row 2 (Color A): purl.
Row 3 (Color B): k1, *(k2tog)x3, (yo, k1)x6, (k2tog)x3; rep from * to the last st, k1.
Row 4 (Color B): knit.
Repeat Rows 1-4.
k2tog (knit 2 together): insert the right-hand needle into the first two stitches on the left-hand needle and wrap the working yarn around the right-hand needle as if you would for a knit stitch. Pull the yarn through both stitches and slide both stitches off the left-hand needle. You have now knitted two stitches together thus resulting in a right-leaning decrease.
yo (yarn over): wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle from back to front counterclockwise before knitting the next stitch. Then work the next stitch as normal.
