FEATHER & FAN CLUB KNITALONG—Join in Anytime

Design 1: the Ripenings Wrapped Shrug

Design 2: Roving Moss Cardigan

 

A wrapped shrug and a comfy cardigan launch my new fall designs in the 54-page 'Feather n Fan Club' booklet available for purchase here http://www.janethornley.com/patterns_booklets.html#2 . 

Knit any one of the three designs in the book to join our event. Come on in! Lavishly illustrated, the guide includes tips on how to blend yarns for smooth transitions using different techniques, how to add a little 'pop' to keep things visually interesting, new ways to shape using the beloved feather n fan stitch, and much more. Each design can be adjusted to fit any size and uses any combination of yarn—perfect stash-busters, all.

Fall in love with an old stitch in a new context

 

Feather & Fan's exuberant nature is released in the popular Organic Wrap design (updated with a few extras), is touched with a wee bit of Highland glory in the new Ripenings Wrapped Shrug, and slips into something richly evocative in my latest Roving Moss cardigan. Free range knitting rules in every one. Never tried it before? Treat yourself to true knitting liberation with no gauge, no rules and stunning results follow. Use existing stash yarns or go foraging—anything goes here.

CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Though instructions as to constructing both the cardi and the shrug are in the guide, pictures say so much more, right? So, here are a few to illustrate 'compiling' your pieces:

 

contruction_back_400

Le back

Le front

 

The edge of the front becomes both armhole opening and (tiny) side seam whereas the  upper right top edge of the longest front piece forms the shoulders. Adjust for your own fitting preference.
