I’d like to use the feather and fan stitch pattern for something, but I found two different variants of the pattern on line (might explain why I’ve had problems with this pattern in the past…I might’ve been using an incorrect pattern! :figureditout:
Firstly, is this a pattern with a multiple of 18 stitches (plus any extra for a border, of course)? I just wanted to make sure because these patterns differ.
Okay, on to the pattern. Both patterns say that rows 1, 3, and 4 are knitted (easy enough!), so they differ on row 3:
One pattern says:
(knit 2 tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (knit 2 tog) 6 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (knit 2 tog) 6 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (knit 2 tog) 3 times
The second pattern says:
[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times
So which pattern is right? (Personally, I hope that the second one is right…it’s less to remember! :teehee: )
I don’t mind knitting up a swatch to see which one is right, but frankly, I have so many projects in the works right now, to knit up something that might be wrong just seems like such a waste of time…a very precious commodity. I was just wondering if anybody here has knitted this pattern and knows which one is right.
