Playing with Old Shale. Inspired by GBFG link text
I used a copy of a (misnamed) Feather & Fan stitch pattern as a starting point, which came with the following description: This pattern comes in many, many variations: with or without purl ridges; with more or fewer plain rows between the pattern rows; with more or fewer yarn overs in each repeat. The structure of the pattern rows – groups of yarn overs flanked by groups of decreases – is the common thread. This structure creates a fabric with graceful waves, perfect for highlighting with a bit of color.
