Feather and Fan Scarf

This really has been a long project.  My first big lace project.  It's a simple feather and fan scarf - made using 4 balls of ONline Linie 135 Goby in bronze - although to me it looks more gold.

It is a very easy pattern to memorise - four row repeats.  Cast on (18 x no. repeats) +2.

Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: k1, k2tog 3 times, yo k 6 times, k2tog 3 times, k1  (repeating the middle 18 as required)
Row 4: knit

Very, very easy - but it still took for ever.  The yarn was nice to knit with but became heavy so I stopped at 4 balls.

Taking pictures was difficult - I just couldn't get the true colour to show up at all.  Use your imagination - it's gold.

To illustrate the picture above - the background is supposed to be white!

I hope my mother-in-law likes it - it's her Christmas present.
