Fana fair-isle sweater, brown and beige by KnitLizzy Fana fair-isle sweater, brown and beige by KnitLizzy
Tho, more like a tunic...
When I made the tunics for my nieces, my mother gave me yarn as payment so I could knit my own later.
:bigthumb361174612:

I got the yarn last winter, close to easter, but after knitting the tunics for my nieces, lightning fast cause I had to get them done before winter was over, I got tired of the pattern and decided to wait until autumn to make mine.
After moving at the end of july, I really got the urge to start my fana sweater, and when august came along, and the weather cooled a bit down, I finally started it! The sweater originally either had a hood or a loose cowl, but after thinking it over, I decided against both and went with a turtleneck instead, which looks much better!

Knitted in Mitu Alpakka from Rauma Ullvarefabrikk, a 50/50 alpaca and wool yarn, super soft and warm on 4-4,5mm needles.
My mother asked me what colors I wanted my sweater in, and I replied green, but she turned me down cause "you got too much green clothing allready"...so I told her brown and beige which ended up being "too boring! Don't you want corall or something instead?" ...yeah, she ate her own words after she saw it finished. And if you ask me, brown and beige are pretty as all hell!

Some facts about "fana". It's one of the most popular knitting patterns from Norway and it can be found, dating back to 1850. It comes from a little town outside of Bergen, called Fana.
...and that's about everything I could find out about the pattern.

The fana patter (c) ...whom ever made the pattern...or have the copyright today...

Beautiful sweater and great job on the modeling.

The upper left hand picture has a whole "Barbara Gordon" thing going on.
