The Fan

Here is my fan sweater from marianne Isager's Japanese Inspired Knits.  I began this last month, and put it on hold for the move.  Once we arrived in Berkeley I found myself uninterested in the sweater.  But, once again (as with the Hex Coat) the Artfibers yarn proved me wrong.

I really like the construction of this garment.  It's quite different from everything else I've made.  I used my favorite Shetland shell edging instead of Isager's.  I also used very different yarn, and as a result I spent quite a bit of time calculating so that I could end up with something that fit.  It actually worked out!
The fabric is really beautiful.  I used two Artfibers yarns.  The Tsuki mohair/silk for the lace edging and the Golden Chai (color 23) 100% silk for the body.  It drapes perfectly.  Size 6 and 8 needles, respectively.
