Fan & Feather Blanket
The reason I am so jazzed to knit this blanket is because BrooklynTweed knit something very similar and it turned out beautiful. It could also be that he is a professional photographer and his photographs are just lovely... But that being beside the point. Last Christmas I knit the Fan & Feather Shawl out of GoL. Around that same time, Chauntel decided to try knitting that same pattern out of HPY Merino, to use as a blanket. And it just looked so warm and wonderful. So, I decided to make my own. BrooklynTweed's is based off a doily pattern but I figure since I have already knit the F&F, why not do the same thing? This is my F&F shawl, blocking. Don't you think a blanket version would be so cool?? Of course, it won't be the full pattern. And I got enough yarn for a lap version of it.
