Knitting pattern: Feathers Shawlette

The Feathers Shawlette is semi-circular and features a feather and fan edging. You begin to knit at the center and work your way outwards to the lace edging. This gives you the opportunity to knit as long as your yarn lasts. The Feathers Shawlette suits self-striping yarns with long repeats extremely well. It also looks great in two different colours which are switched at the beginning of the lace edging.

A good beginner's project in lace knitting.
