The Feather and Fan Shawl Feather and Fan Knitted Shawl Instructions

This is a simple yet elegant design made with the Classic Feather and Fan Knitting Stitch pattern.

In this project, Joanne used a stunning shimmering cake yarn but you can choose your favorite colors. Verigated yarn seems to fit the design very well.

You can find the pattern HERE.

If you want to try the stitch pattern on its own, here’s our video tutorial for it.

And we also have a Feather and Fan Shrug Tutorial HERE.


spring shawl: expression fibers Beginner Summer Lace Shawl w/ a Unique Technique!

A great project featured on the Expression Fiber Arts channel on YouTube.

This lovely beginner-level shawl features areas of two yarns knit together and areas where there is only one yarn strand. It also switches needles sizes.

So it is a great project to make for someone who has knitted a few pieces and is comfortable with knits, purls, and yarn-overs.

It is airy and lovely all together, so it really is a warmer weather kind of project.


The Butterfly Shawl Butterfly Stitch Knitting Shawl

This project was designed by us, the super mother/daughter team. Joanne and Ana. I imagined having a shawl with one of my favorite patterns the Big Butterfly Stitch Knitting Pattern, and Joanne came to my rescue, because I had a hard time fitting and lining up the butterfly features.

Well, after a couple of months of working on this pattern I finally released it in the Spring of 2021 and was one of my favorite projects to make so far.

Once you understand the repetitions and the edge yarn -overs this project is a breeze. I would categorize it as an advanced beginner as well.

You can also find the Big Butterfly Stitch pattern on its own HERE.
