Have been experimenting with the feather and fan pattern to make some scarves. First decided to use some of my Koigu stash and make a scarf using 5 of the skeins. Out of the 50 gr skein I used 28 gr, comprising 25 repeats of the pattern (4 rows for each repeat). Liked the look of it quite a bit. Could even use 3 full Koigu skeins and get a scarf almost the same length of 50 inches long. Idea is to let colors flow into each other. After using 2 1/2 skeins, I placed on holder and began using other 2 1/2 from the opposite direction. When length the same, I grafted pieces together with kitchener stitch.
Now trying it on more male oriented colors of using earth tones - 2 skeins of wool in the woods Cherub with 1 skein of Koigu - the difference being I am ribbing the Koigu in the middle which brings the scarf in much like a fisherman's scarf.
Here is a picture of the Koigu scarf. Hopefully I will have attached it properly and it will show up.
