"Fana" is a beloved Norwegian Sweater Style....
My latest crochet mania is to try and duplicate the look into a granny stripe pattern.
This is what I came up with so far:
I made this the size of a European bed pillow, the original intent was a blanket; however, I struggled with hiding the yarn that was carried over with color change...
the back does not look very good. :-)
The decision has not been made as to what it will be exactly, but if it were made into a pillow of sorts, the connecting yarn strands won't show as much.
Does anyone know how to hide these strands? I would love some guidance.
Here's an example of a knitted Fana sweater
WIP by my mother in Norway:
This is the look I have tried to duplicate.
Red Heart yarn in cherry and white, size "I" hook and the help of a granny stripe pattern from the lovely Purl Bee website. Click here for Purl Bee's granny stripe directions.
I tried to figure out the color change and pattern by alternating rows of red and white and then alternating red and white with each row, but will keep looking for instruction in order to someday make a blanket and/or post a pattern.
Have a bright day!
