This Crochet Feather and Fan Baby Blanket Pattern makes a beautiful lacy blanket that will be treasured for years to come. The pattern includes both a written pattern and a video tutorial to walk you through each step! This post contains affiliate links, which help to support this site. Thank you!
Today, I am excited to be joining with some great bloggers in support of a wonderful cause. Kim of A Girl and A Glue Gun has organized a blanket extravaganza this month in support Luke’s Loves and the Project Linus charity. You can read all about these great organizations and how you can get involved by donating a handmade blanket to a child in need right HERE.
To support this cause, I decided to share a new crochet baby blanket pattern – the crochet feather and fan baby blanket.
This pattern is basically a mini version of one of my most popular crochet patterns, the Chunky Feather and Fan Afghan. I sized it down using a lighter yarn and smaller hook and made a couple other small adjustments to end up with this pretty, lacy baby blanket.
Feather and Fan Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern Supplies:
- Worsted Weight Yarn – I used Knit Picks Brava Acrylic in Mint, Tranquil, and Dove Heather (I used about 5 balls or 1100 yards in total). I also recommend Red Heart Soft for an affordable worsted weight acrylic.
- Size K (6.50 mm) Hook
- Yarn Needle
I would recommend reviewing my original feather and fan afghan pattern for more details about how to work the pattern as well as a stitch chart. UPDATE: I have made a video for this stitch! YAY! I will add the video at the end of this post. Please subscribe to my Youtube channel HERE.

Row 1: Work 119 foundation single crochet stitches [fsc (You can learn all about the foundation single crochet stitch here.)] Or you can chain 120, sc in the second chain from the hook and each of the remaining stitches. (My finished blanket is about 32″ wide. You can adjust the width of the blanket by adding or subtracting multiples of 17 fsc.)
Row 2: Ch 3, 4 dc in same stitch. *Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times, skip one sc, 5 dc in next two scs. *Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times, skip one sc, 5 dc in next two scs. *Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times, skip one sc, 5 dc in next two scs.*Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times, skip one sc, 5 dc in next two scs. *Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times, skip one sc, 5 dc in next sc. Turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, working in front loops only, sc in same st and each st across (119 sc). Turn.
Rows 4-73: Repeat Rows 2 & 3 changing colors every 8 rows. Always add a new color on a Row 3 repeat. When you reach the end, finish off, and weave in ends.

Gorgeous, Alexis! The pattern is so timeless and I love your color choices.
Thank you so much, Rachel!
Nannette Wilkinson says
I also love the color choices but wonder if you could recommend a washable wool yarn that could be used instead of acrylic?
Hi there! Any washable wool in a worsted weight should work well. Knit Picks has two – Swish (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Swish_Worsted_Yarn__D5420153.html) and Wool of the Andes Superwash (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Wool_of_the_Andes_Superwash__D5420246.html). Lion Brand Wool-Ease is also available in a 4 medium weight. Hope that helps! Good luck! 🙂
Its so gorgeous! you are so talented!!!Thanks so much!
Thank, Kimbo! You are the best. 🙂
Krista Cagle says
This is gorgeous! <3
So awesome – I love everything about this project, Alexis!
Thank you, Maritza! Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂
Katie Nathey says
This is adorable and I love the colors you used, not to mention what a great way to give back! We recently found out my sister is pregnant so now I’m becoming obsessed with looking at anything baby-related 🙂
Oh so fun! Congrats on the niece or nephew! Thanks for coming by, Katie. 🙂
I love the colors you chose for this blanket!
Did you use 5 balls of each color or all together?
I love this blanket and want to make one for my pregnant cousin.
Greets from Germany
I used 5 balls all together – about one and a half of each color. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Good luck with the blanket! 🙂
I’m having trouble with your count. When I make a swatch of the multiples… I come out with 21 stitches instead of 17.what am I doing wrong?
Hi Coretta! Have you looked at the stitch chart on my original feather and fan pattern? It might be helpful to you. You can check it out here: http://persialou.com/2014/02/freecrochetlacyafghanpattern.html
Hi, I’m learning to crochet just by YouTube videos, I have only been learning for the past 3 days and I’m trying to make this blanket, it’s going well but Every time an even number row (2&4)… I have two stitches left!! I counted them all and I have the right number before starting, I’m making the right number of everything in the row… But I can’t figure out why I have 2 more. Any idea what it could be?
U could be adding a extra stitch on that row of single crochets… u don’t go in the 1st stitch in that row as u do when u r on the next row making 5 dc’s.
I’m trying to make this but I feel like I’m doing something wrong. In Step 3, do I sc in each of the stitches like all of the DC spots. Will the sections of 5 DC “stack” on top of each other or be a little offset? Thanks!
Hi Kim, you will work one single crochet in each stitch all the way across. So, yes, every dc should get a single crochet. I’m not sure what you mean exactly by stacking on top of each other. They may be a bit more squished in the 5 dc sections, but each sc should go in it’s own stitch. Hope that helps!
Thanks, Alexis! What I meant is when I do a repeat of Row 2, will the groups of 5 DC be directly above the previous groups of 5 DC? Right now, they are off set a bit, which I think is correct because it makes a wave. At the end of my repeat Row 2 though, I don’t have a place to end with 5 DC. I think I ended the row on a 6th DC stitch. Can you tell I’m a novice? 🙂
Yes, I am having the same problem on the row 2 repeat. I feel like the beginning should be different then a chain 3 4dc. Please advise.
Hi Ashley! I think the problem is probably in your sc row. Make sure you are working a sc into the top of the ch 3 (it counts as your first dc). If you don’t want to do that you can just ch 3, 5 dc, and ignore the ch3, but the edge of your blanket might be a bit more wavy. Hope that helps!
I think u r doing the same as the other girl was… on the row of ur single crochets make sure u chain 1 then go into the next stitch. Unlike the next row where u add 4 more in with ur first chain.
Hi! Sorry! I understand your question now. Yes, the 5 dc clusters should line up with one another. When you start a new Row 2 repeat with a ch 3 and 4 dc, that ch 3 counts as your first dc, so, that top chain space should get a sc worked into it too. I’m guessing that when you did your sc row, you missed that final sc – it is pretty easy to over look. Rather than frog two rows, I would just fudge it and work and extra 5 dc into that last stitch. As long as the total number of stitches is correct, it shouldn’t mess you up too badly. I hope that helps!
Kathryn Koran says
Hello Alexis!, first of all you’re adorable! Secondly your website is the best. I was making an afghan (trying to make an afghan) and I have literally ripped it out 12 times, even redoing the chain. I was so careful with each stitch and it just would not work out. I finally found your website and have finally been able to work on this afghan without worrying whether it’s correct or not. Your pattern is very similar to the one I was using but with fewer stitches and much better direction. I couldn’t figure out why the other one looked lumpy. Anyway, I’m so happy I found you and I love your videos.
Thanks so much!
Aw Kathryn, Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. It made my morning!
I’m planning on making this blanket, so I’m making a small sample to try out the pattern.
Whenever I do the sc round (round 3) I end up have 2 sc too little compared to the original number. I made 3×17 in my foundation chain (51 sc), but for some reason I end up having only 49 sc in round 3, 5, 7 etc.
I follow the pattern very accurately, so I can’t really figure out what goes wrong here.
Rachelle Bennington says
Is it okay to sell the products made from this pattern?
Yes, Rachelle. Thanks for asking. You are welcome to sell anything you make from my patterns. I ask that you include a link when possible. And please do not redistribute the pattern itself in anyway. Thank you!
QUESTION. I am making this with baby yarn. Should I still use the “K” hook or a smaller???
Hi Judy! Usually baby yarn is a finer weight than worsted. If it is like a sport weight or DK weight yarn, then you will probably want to use a smaller hook. Maybe a G? It will depend on the yarn. Try a few hooks to see what you like best. If you use a finer yarn and smaller hook, you will need to add a few multiples of 17 fsc in the first row to make the blanket wide enough (and more rows to make it long enough). Good luck! I would love to see it when you finish!
I started with a 120 ch stitches. Somehow when I get to Row 3 my count is off, I followed the pattern but can’t seem to figure out where I lost about 40 stitches. Any ideas where I may have erred?
Hi Patty! You lost 40 stitches between rows 2 and 3? Is that right? Did you mean 4? I’m not sure. Have you watched my video on the feather and fan stitch? It might be helpful. (You can see it here if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL3SrVOyAGM) There are a couple problems people have run into in the past: First, be sure to count your chains at the beginning of the row as a dc and sc into the chain. Next make sure you are doing two 5 dc shells in between each 17 stitch repeat – there is one that is at the end of the first repeat and one at the beginning of the next. I hope that helps!
Such a beautiful blanket, crocheting this n cream for a friend who is moving away.
Oh I love a pretty lacy cream blanket. Enjoy!
Hi, I also had the same problem with coming up 40 stitches short. Part of my problem was resolved when I realized that there should be 7 dc in every other stitch between the fan bunches, which gets me to the needed 17 stitch repeat pattern in row 3. But what I’m seeing is that there are only 5 repeats of the pattern in row 3, but to get to a total of 119 stitches, it looks like there should be 7 repeats. Does this make sense, Alexis? That’s what I had to do to get to 119. If there’s something else I’m missing, please let me know!
Juliana Johnston says
Such a great website and really excellent video. i have tried the feather and fan five times now and i just can\t seem to get the pattern to line up properly. I wonder if you might have some trouble shooting advice here? I am pulling my hair out!
Oh no! I’m sorry it’s not working out for you! Can you tell me a bit more about how it’s not lining up? Do you have extra stitches at the end or are the fans not stacking on top of each other correctly?
Juliana Johnston says
thanks for getting back to me Alexis. I really love this pattern and I am determined to get it right. I should mention that I am very much a novice.There are extra stitches at the end of the row and an increase of six stitches form the number i started with after three pattern rows. Although strangely the width doesn’t seem to have increased? The fans are not stacking up correctly either.Your advice is greatly appreciated!
Hmmm… okay if you have extra stitches at the end of the row, then there is definitely something going wrong along the way. A few problems people have had in the past – 1. Make sure you are counting the ch 3 at the beginning of the row as a stitch. Don’t forget to single crochet into that ch 3 at the end of your sc row. 2. Make sure you are doing two 5 dc shells in between each repeat. There is one at the end of the first repeat and one at the beginning of the next repeat. 3. Double check your count on the skip 1, dc in between the shells. There should be 7 skipped stitches and 7 dcs. I would also recommend you reference the chart in this post (http://persialou.com/2014/02/freecrochetlacyafghanpattern.html) if you haven’t yet. I hope that helps! Good luck!
Hi. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I’ve started with my 119 foundation crochet stitches. I chain three and then start on my pattern. However by the end row 3 I end up with 129. Is there something I am doing wrong?
I think you’re doing what I did! You’re probably only doing 6 double crochet then skip 1 stitch instead of 7!
In a lot of patterns when we see *instruction it will say repeat blank times, but in this pattern the instruction is the first and then we do the action the number of times indicated. So, the pattern says repeat 6 times, but you should have already created 1.
I’ve frogged this pattern more times than I’d like to admit trying to figure some of these things out lol.
My second row has 127 chains, I followed the pattern exactly. However I don’t understand how row 3 is supposed to have 119sc only. Help please? I’ve taking this out and started again 6 times. Really want to do this blanket but I’m getting a little flustered.
Hi Amanda – I’m sorry you are getting frustrated! It’s tough for me to give you specific advice when I can’t see your work. Have you referred to the chart? You can see it here: http://persialou.com/2014/02/freecrochetlacyafghanpattern.html – One suggestion – make sure you are skipping stitches before and after the 5 dc shells. That might be your problem. Good luck!
I would love to do this pattern and I love your color choices. Just so I know exactly what to buy (beginner here), can you tell me how many of each color you bought?
Hi Alli! Thank you! Yes, for the size blanket I made (which is pretty small about 32″ x 40″) I used under two balls of each color. I might suggest getting three balls of each color in case you want to make a larger blanket. If you want to make it wider, just add a multiple of 17 to the first row. I used Knit Picks Brava Acrylic in Mint, Tranquil, and Dove Heather. I hope that helps!! Good luck!
I am loving this blanket! Even though I have had to start over a few rows 🙂 Anyway, I’m on row 6 and I’m getting close to the color change part. Do I change the color on the sc row (i.e. the new color would be done in sc) or do I change it after that last sc row? I’ve tried to look at your pictures and count it out but I still am not entirely sure!
I’m so glad you like it! The new color will be added on a single crochet row – you will work single crochets with the first row of the new color. I hope that makes sense. 🙂 Good luck!
Oh this is so beautiful. I even like the color combination. I must make this. Thanks for the pattern.
I discovered this beautiful blanket pattern on Pinterest and have just completed my blanket! I have only ever crocheted once before and that was one big granny square but your instructions and video tutorial were so helpful and I am so pleased with the beautiful finished product! I will definitely be getting extra auntie points for this!! Thank you Alexis! xxx
Oh you are so, so welcome! I am so glad you liked the pattern and video! I’m sure the blanket will be well-loved. Thanks so much for stopping by, Hanna! Your comment absolutely made my day. 🙂 Thanks
I am curious as to how to finish off the blanket with the foundation stitch again. I’m not sure if I’m doing it right. And I’m not seeing it in any of the videos darn…
Hi Mercedes! I did not finish off my blanket with a foundation single crochet stitch I just ended with a regular pattern row. It works great and looks just fine. 🙂 Good luck!
Okay sounds good! Now to finish off my blanket! Thank you very much for the quick reply… & thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. So many people have seen the one I’m making and want one now also. Haha so I am going to be busy for a while.
Have a wonderful day!?
Haha! I love that. You will definitely be busy! 🙂
Megan M Frey says
If I were to make this blanket in an afgan size, how many of the balls of yarn do you think I would need? I am wanting to use the same yarn you did.
Hi Megan! I’m thinking you would need probably about four-five times the yarn, so I would recommend getting at least 8 balls of each color, maybe 9-10, depending on how big you want the finished blanket to be. Good luck! I would love to see it when you are finished. 🙂
This is a great pattern, thank you. I am using it to make a baby blanket for a friend and wondering how you weaved the ends in and made them secure? I’m not really sure how this is done with such an open/lacy design. Thanks.
I always use a yarn needle to weave in my ends. Just go through stitches on the back side of the blanket, zig and zag a bit, and I have had not problem with ends coming lose using this technique. Good luck!
I just started working on this blanket and am a little concerned. It seems like it is going to just enlarge as I go with the added 5 dc stitches with each row 2 repeat. Is this something I should be concerned with or does it end up being normal and straight in the end? Thanks!
Hi Meg! Each row should have the same number of stitches. You add the 5 dc shells, but you compensate for that by skipping every other stitch in the section between the shells. That evens things out. Hope that helps.
Hey! I have finished the pattern and it turned out great, for my first ever project! (minus the difference in tightness of my stitching)… I was wondering though, is there any way to put a border on this blanket?
Hi Jessica! I’m so glad it turned out well! And, yes, you can absolutely add a border to the blanket if you like. The technique you use will depend a bit on what you want the final border to look like, but you could just do a single crochet border all the way around to give it a nice finished edge or add a contrasting color.
pat gibson says
hi. i am going to make an adult version of the feather and fan baby blanket. i will try to make it around 45″ x 50″–if my measurements are correct!! LOL i watched your video-which was very good and helpful. i did notice the sample became rather shorter in width during the first few rows. do i need to make any adjustments for that or will the width be what i need in the end? hope that makes sense. i would like it to be around 45″ in width throughout and the same in the end. i would appreciate any hints or tips you can offer.
Hi Pat! Yes, it definitely does shrink up a bit once you get the pattern going because the feathers and fan create a ripple shape. Once it shrinks up after the second row, it will stay the same width as you continue to crochet. I would recommend doing a little swatch 17 stitch swatch of the first few rows, measure it’s width and then do a little math to figure out how many repeats you need to get 45″. Hope that makes sense! Good luck! I can’t wait to see the finished blanket!
Hello! My scallops are not stacking on top of each other properly. For instances, it’s off by one stick away. Can you tell me how to correct this? I’ve counted the stickers after the single crochet lines and I have 85 stitches. thanks!
I had to shorten mine to 102 instead of 119, and I’m coming to the end of row 3 and have more sc than 102. I was wondering if that will make a difference.
I love this pattern and I’m trying to make it for a friend. I am having issues getting my fans to line up and I absolutely cannot figure out why. I get about midway through the 3rd row and the fans stop lining up. I am very careful to follow all of your instructions. I’m wondering though, do I do a total of 6 or 7 double stitches in between the two clusters of 5? Any help would be great! Thanks!
Hi Erin! I’m sorry you are having trouble. It should be total of 7 dc and 8 skipped single crochets between the fan sections. Be sure to check out the chart on this post (http://persialou.com/2014/02/freecrochetlacyafghanpattern.html) if you haven’t. It can help you visualize the pattern a little better. The other thing to look out for is make sure you are working two fans in between each “feather” section (the skip one, dc section). Each 17 stitch repeat has a fan at the beginning and at the end so there are two fans right next to each other between each feather section. I know some people have missed that before. I hope that helps! Good luck!
Hi Alexis, I chained 153 chains but somehow I keep messing up at the end am missing a last stitch I have no idea where I went wrong, also on your video you mention seven double crochets and on your written pattern it says six? Am lost is it 7 or 6 double crochets?
Hi Nancy! I’m sorry you are having trouble. It says to repeat six times in the written pattern, but you have already done one dc, so it is seven total. Also, make sure you are working a sc into the beginning ch 3, that is one spot where people have run into trouble. I hope that helps. Good luck!
Just wondering how soft the Brava yarn you used is?? I am LOVING the price, but want to make a baby blanket, so I’m willing to spend a little more on my yarn if the Brava is scratchy at all. Thanks!
I find Brava to be pretty soft. It is not as slinky, silky as like a Caron simply soft, but it’s also not shiny like that yarn. It do not think it is scratchy at all. It’s definitely not the softest yarn in the world, but I do think it is soft. I would say it is fairly comparable to Red Heart Soft, if you have tried that. I hope that helps!
I have a question. When I do row 3, I seem to come up 3 short. Since it’s supposed to come out as the beginning number of stitches (119) I end up with 116. I already re did it completely a couple of time, but still come out with the same problem. What is going on?
I am going to make your feather and fan baby blanket and would just like to clarify the amount of yarn. You list the colors you used, and then you state that you used about 5 balls (1100 yards). How much of each color do I get?
I appreciate your help!
Hi Stephanie! I used a little less than two balls of each color, so I approximated about 5 balls total. My finished blanket is definitely on the small side though, so I would recommend getting extras. 🙂 Good luck!
Hi just wondering as my baby blanket is rather skewed to one side how did you set it to be straight? Cheers Jodes
Hmm… I’m sorry you are having that problem! I’m not sure… Can you explain a little more about what you mean by skewed to one side? Is one side longer? Is it possible your fans have not lined up properly?
Arlene B. Collins says
Hellow I’m doing this feather and fan Baby Blanket and was wondering what hook did you use, 5. 5.5 or a 6 MM hook
Hi! I used a K (6.50 mm) hook. 🙂
Hi, usually with worsted weight yarn it recommends a 5 mm crochet hook, is there a special reason you used a larger hook or is that what the specific yarn you used recommended?
I generally prefer a larger hook than what is recommended on yarn labels, I find that the resulting fabric has better drape, especially for a blanket. You are welcome to use whatever hook you feel works best for your yarn and tension. 🙂 You may want to increase the number of beginning stitches to widen your blanket if you use a smaller hook.
Thank you! I will experiment with needle size but will probably use what you recommend!
Lorna isaacs says
Is there a way to put a border on this blanket
I’m working on this blanket for a friend! It’s actually my first patterned blanket!!!! And my first blanket with a normal sized yarn. I’m a huge fan of chunky yarn. I was so excited to read that you have another video of a chunky feather and fan!!! I plan on making a chunky one for myself!!! I still haven’t managed to read a pattern so the YouTube video is my best friend! Thanks!
Yay! You are so welcome. And good luck with the blanket!
Gloria Kressin says
My daughter is expecting her first baby in May. I sent her links to many baby blanket patterns for her to pick what she’d like me to make and she picked yours as her favorite! However, I prefer to use cotton for baby blankets. Do you think this pattern would work well with a cotton, such as Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton? I was wondering if it would still come out as airy. Thanks for your opinion!
Hi Gloria! Yes, I think that would work great for this pattern. I am a fan of I Love This Cotton too. I would love to see a photo of it when you are all done!
Thanks for this awesome pattern!
I am very new to crocheting so please bear with my stupid question! I know that at the end of a row, you have to ch 1 (or 2 or 3 depending on the stitch) so as to “move up to the next row”.
But there are 2 discrepancies between your written pattern and video tutorial, so I’m a bit confused…
1) In the written pattern, at the end of Row 1, you do not mention a ch 1 then turn, but you do this in the video. Do I follow the written pattern or video? Ps. I am not (yet!) able to read a chart, so no help there for me…
2) In the written pattern, at the end of row 2, it only says turn, but in the video you ch 1, then turn. Which one do I follow?
Also, is there a difference to ch 3 after you have turned as apposed to before you turn?
Helen Burns says
I have been crocheting a few months and have learned to watch any related videos and read comments to make sure I understand the pattern. In the instructions above, row 2 says to repeat the *skip one sc, dc in next dc* 6 times, but in your reply to comments and and in the video it says 7. 7 actually gets the the count to 17 in the repeat, so I think the pattern instructions on your page need corrected? Also, after the first ch 3, 4 dc, the pattern that follows repeats 5 times, and 119 divided by 17 = 7. If I am correct I thought you would want to fix that. And last, I have a question about the beginning of row 2, the pattern says ch 3, 4 dc in same stitch, so wouldn’t this row need multiples of 17 +1 fsc or sc? And, in the comments you mention adding an sc at the top of that chain, but that’s not in the instructions.
I hope this helps, or if I am wrong please tell me! I can’t imagine how hard it is to write a pattern.
Hi… I have a question for u…. I am finding that along the side of this feather and fan blanket I have holes that I could literally stick my pinky finger in…. what is the best border for this blanket to help hide these holes.?. Thanks in advance for any opinions… 🙂
Just finished my first baby blanket using your beautiful pattern. It was a little rough getting started but it finished up nicely and I hope it will be a cherished gift. Thank you for sharing the pattern and the very helpful video!
What kind of border would you recommend for this? Making it for my best friend who is expecting but I like to have a border.
Rita s. says
Like ur site keep me posted Halloween coming up I need new ideas for gifts
I cannot get the right number of stitches. After row 2. I did follow the link for the stitch grid.
This pattern is so pretty.
Barbara Tesi says
When you state skip a stitch double crochet next stitch repeat from star 6 times does that mean there is 7 double crochet in between the 5 double crochet in same stitch
I used this patten to make my very first crochet project. It took three weeks and is ready in plenty of time to bring baby home in. Thank you so much for posting!
Aw that is so sweet. Thank you so much for sharing with me! <3
H. Johnson says
I have a question/issue about the “Crochet Feather and Fan Baby Blanket” pattern you have on your website: I have tried making this project twice now, and cannot get the 119 sc. crochets on the Row 3 that you state. I have begun with the 119 foundation single crochet and followed your pattern for Row 2, however, in doing Row 2, it increases 12 stitches every pattern set, like this: for the first 16 stitches, you increase to 28 stiches going through the pattern (5+13+10), which equals 12 more, and then, (13+10) which equals 8 more, so that on Row 3 (coming back), there is that many more stitches to sc. crochet into. Counting it out, I believe that Row 3 should have some decrease in the pattern, as doing it how it was written, increases the blanket size every time, which should not happen. Can you please list this pattern with corrections so that the blanket is make-able?
I really like your blanket shown for this pattern, and am hoping to make it myself, but cannot work it out as written. Please help if you can.
Judy Sherwood says
I love this pattern and have made it twice already!!!
Once for my new granddaughter in pale peach and pale gray, and just finished one in pink and dark pink for a new granddaughter coming in 2 months. Wish there were a way to show the picture. Just love it.
Yay! Thanks so much, Judy!
Getting ready to start on your Feather and Fan Baby Blanket. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work! So excited that I found this one!!
You might have answered this in the comments but I too am having a problem with your stitch counts. I think I figured it out once I looked at your diagram. When you say “repeat from *6 times I think you should have said repeat from *6 more times because what you’re doing is actually a seven stitch repeat not a six count repeat. Does that make sense?
Ashley A Petersen says
So it is 7 and not 6 this might be why I have been struggling. Haha. Might just have to start this project over. Let me know for sure pleasssse. Thank you.
Terry Ann says
I can’t find the pattern for the edging in the first picture that led me to this link. Please help.
Ashley A Petersen says
I decreased the number of fsc to 85. I was just wondering how many dc when skipping on in between is it 7 ive been doing 6 and also how many sc I should end up having across. For some reason everything seems to line up correctly until I get about half way and then it’s off. And I havent been able to end with the 5 sc tog. I cant figure out where I am going wrong and have gone through almost 200 yards trying to figure out where I’m going wrong. I know I’m not skipping a stitch or adding a stitch so I’m not sure where I’m going wrong. If you could help thatd be greatly appreciated. I really want to get this pattern right. My sister is finally having a little girl due in december. 🙂
This is a lovely blanket. I’ve had to frog mine several times though until I finally realized you meant repeat 6 MORE times. It would be much clearer if you added in the MORE so we knew you meant it was repeated 7 times.
Hi, I love this pattern and would love to buy an ad-free pdf, but it appears the Etsy link is broken — I didn’t see a download on Ravelry, is there some place else I can purchase it? Thank you!

I like the pattern for feathers and fans baby blanket. I want it wider than shown.About 40 inches wide. I’m not good in math.Can you figure how many chain stitches to make. It’s ok if a Little bigger than 40 inches. Hope you can do this for me. Thank you so much.
I super appreciate the free pattern and I think the finished piece and the colors you chose are so pretty! I’d like to say, at this late date in the middle of 2021 when I am finding this pattern for the first time, that I’d like to suggest that the pattern should read:
(Skip one sc, dc in next sc) 7 times
instead of the *Skip one sc, dc in next sc, repeat from * 6 times. The wording here seems to have confused a few people, myself included. I also really benefited from the stitch chart which you linked to but did not include on this page. That being said, thank you for the pattern!
Love this! Thank you for sharing.

Grossly late to the party here but I simplified the pattern
Row 1: FSC 153 and turn
(First dc is replaced by turning ch 3 and work 1st dc5 as a dc4 in same st as ch3 for 5 dc total)
Row 2: *dc5 (skp1 dc in next sc)7× skip 1 dc5* repeat * to * across
Row 3: working in front loops only sc 153 across
Hope this helps. she wrote 6 not 7 it messed me up too she says 7 in the video which is right.
I love and use your pattern all the time!!! So may compliments. I was wondering if you have a pattern to make a straight edge to this pattern. I love the starting scallops but the opposite side of the blanket sometimes looks undone. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I have one question: Why is the foundation chain 119 instead of 117 since you’re using multiples of 17? I watched the video and it was just straight 17 so I don’t know where the extra 2 stitches came from. I really want to make this or one of my nephews.
Never mind! I forgot how math works!
How is your blanket?
