A Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl
The Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl is a popular free pattern that’s been waiting for my attention for a few years now.
I love the feminine, homey stitch pattern that lends itself so well to stripes of coordinating colors and I’ve dreamed it into existence with so many different combinations!
This large shawl came to be using a skein of handspun polworth wool that I blogged about here, along with 4 skeins of light green and one skein of a turquoise llama/silk blend.
They actually played together surprisingly well – combining into a medley of warm glowing tones – just waiting to wrap up a faraway friend in a surrogate hug.
When she draws her pretty new shawl around her shoulders, I hope it helps her to remember that although she travels alone, she’s held in others’ hearts.
