The Feather & Fan in any item is a wonderful pattern if you ask me. Looks complex but is easy as pie! I love this cowl, but I think I may try it again with a stiffer fiber like Malabrigo. The KnitPicks Andean Silk is LOVELY, but it has a wonderful drape that is not the best for this project. I have 2 skeins left of this gorgeous yarn and it will become a lacy something!
