Kim Dyes Yarn "Flan Fingering" is a single ply fingering yarn in a merino/silk blend, so you know your project will work up with beautiful structure and sheen. The slight twist to the yarn helps reduce the fuzz factor and this yarn dyes up *beautifully* for shawls, tops, or scarves.
Mitzi used Flan Fingering in her “Kiboushi” - a stylish pullover by Ririko with a lace pattern on the shoulder, sleeves, and lower body. The high-low slit hem makes this flattering piece both current and classic.
It is worked from the top down seamlessly; the yoke is first worked in the round with saddle shoulder construction, then back and forth separately to the underarm, where they are joined again. The lower body is knitted in one piece in the round with a lace pattern, then split into two and knitted to two different lengths. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings and worked down to 3/4 length in the round with lace pattern.
Ravelry user kiraknits had this to say about Kim Dyes Yarn Flan:
"Wonderful yarn to knit with and the colorways are amazing! The high twist to the single means no splitting. Excellent for lace shawls. Also plays well with other singles."
The pattern calls for US size 4 (3.5mm) needles. This sweater is designed to be worn with 6-18" of positive ease, and you'll need 3 (4, 5, 5)(6, 6, 7, 8) skeins of Flan Fingering for finished bust size 38¼ (43½, 49, 54¼)(59¾, 65, 70½, 75¾)”.
