Making the After the Rain Feather and Fan Knit Blanket:

I am a sucker for rainbows and beautiful feather and fan stitches. Even better when the feather and fan stitch pattern is solid and doesn’t have any holes!

Worked in 8 colors to make a rainbow gradient you can choose to do the same or pick your own color variety. Grab your favorite 8 colors of Red Heart Super Saver and get started on this pattern with me.

Using increases and decreases you can get this great wave look. Many times you will see a feather and fan pattern worked with more lace stitches. This pattern has omitted the lace and creates the pattern through the increases and decreases.
