Some Weekend Inspiration

My "Some Weekend Inspiration" post this week is a knitting post.
I am enjoying the fact that I have started knitting again.
That is I am knitting and crocheting squares for my new grey blanket.

So I was looking at other knitting patterns this week, and I found this really wonderful pattern.
It is called the feather and fan stitch pattern, and it really is simple.
I am a great lover of simple.
But the thing about this wonderful pattern is that although it is simple the result is just amazing.
So I decided to look around online for examples of this lovely pattern.
And what better place to start than Flickr.
And because there were so many wonderful examples of the pattern on Flickr that really inspired me, I decided to make a mosaic of a few.

This is a close up of the pattern that you can see here.

And here is the pattern

This pattern is divisible by 18.
This mean you can use any yarn and any size needles you like.
Determine the size you want and follow the needle recommendations on the yarn packaging.
Cast on any amount (as long as it is divisible by 18).

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: *Knit 2 together 3 times, Yarn-over Knit 1 6 times, Knit 2 together 3 times* repeat from * to * till end.

Row 4: Knit

Repeat these four rows until work measures the length you want.

It's so simple dont you think.

You can use this pattern to make scarfs, baby blankets, cushions and afghans.
And what about a dress and it's not just a knitted dress no it's a Vogue Knitted Dress!!!

I love this pattern!!!!
Have a great and inspiring weekend !!!
