Pattern Description:

Because of the nature of PDF downloads, I cannot offer refunds for purchases. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns before you buy. I want to make sure you only buy a pattern you really want. Thank you so much.

I love art deco motifs. Their bold, graceful lines are neither subtle nor fussy. This fan motif pays homage to the era and is worked up in my favorite color; a deep inky purple and is paired with a soft gray. Mix and match any two highly contrasting yarns or work a solid with a variegated, if you prefer.

I chose a yarn with a little cashmere and a little nylon, to ensure durability and softness, but almost any sock yarn with a bit of memory, should work fine
