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.

Fell in love with knitting as a young lass, and decades later... there is still so much more to learn, from fancy lace stitches to interesting Japanese knitting techniques.
