I love this design!
One pattern gives you two marvelous items to make -- a stunning scarf with great hand warmers to match. And need I tell you that hand warmers are a great portable project for wandering the world in your summer travels? :-)
By Marsha White of Provenance Knits this wonderful design not only gives you two great things to knit but also allows you to use your choice of lace weight, fingering weight, DK weight, or worsted weight yarns! How marvelous is that?
Here is how Marsha describes this:
The traditional patterns of Shetland lace have been an inspiration for many lace knitters. Feather and Fan has been adapted in this pattern, creating the well known fan shape in both the scarf and hand warmer patterns.
Larger ‘fans’ on the beginning and ending borders of the scarf create a feminine flare.
Traditional Feather and Fan lace uses sections of increases and decreases on the same row, followed by rows of plain knitting, all creating a lovely fan shape. In the Fans with Flair variation of the pattern, the increases are worked on one row, and the decreases are spread out over several rows. This creates a lacier fabric and still maintains the fan shape.
What we offer here on this web page is your choice of a printed copy -- this includes shipping in the cost --- or we also can email the pattern to you via email (just be aware that it is not automatic; I have to manually send it to you so it might take a bit of time for me to get to it). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
This will be a wonderful project. The design is simply beautiful.
