Feather and Fan Afghan

I started another afghan on Sunday. I screwed it up so have had to pull out some rows and restart it a couple times. But I seem to be on a roll now.

The pattern is called "Feather and Fan" (it's in multiples of 18 stitches plus 2) and I thought it would be cool for an afghan. Here's what it will sort of look like (mine will be all one colour).

Cast on 308 stitches.

  1. Knit 10 rows
  2. First row of pattern ~ Knit to end
  3. Second row of pattern ~ Purl to end
  4. Third row of pattern ~ K1, *[k2tog] 3 times, (yf, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times ... repeat from * to last stitch, k1
  5. Fourth row of pattern ~ Knit to end
  6. Repeat the four rows of pattern over and over and over and over.
  7. Knit 10 rows
