Comments about Yarn Requirements: Noro Silk Garden, 4 skeins in color #84 (A) and 11 skeins in color #341 (B) Feather & Fan Lace Blanket PDF:
This pattern is easy enough for a beginner, yet the finished product is sophisticated and elegant. I was a little hesitant to try an overall feather and fan stitch with such a wild and colorful variegated yarn. But the yarn does not overwhelm the lace pattern, and the stiff and rough qualities of silk garden help to keep the pattern distinct. At first I worried that the yarn wasn't soft enough for an afghan. Then I realized if the yarn was soft and slippery you would lose all the complex stitchery in the color. Silk garden has a coarseness to it that makes this afghan more grown up and sophisticated and less of an oversized baby blanket as some afghans can be. Though I played around with other colors, I settled on the recommended colors and was glad I did. The pattern requires two different colorways that are very nearly, but not quite the same, with one being much more restricted than the other. It's harder than you might think to find two such colors without becoming a little garish. The photographs do not do it justice. The finished afghan is magnificent. The perfect project for long winter nights binge watching old movies in dim light. After setting the pattern you will rarely have to look at it again. My only tip would be to use stitch markers though the pattern doesn't suggest it.
