The folding fan was invented in Japan in the 6th century for practical reasons, but the fan blossomed into an art form that holds rich cultural significance in Japan’s history, and its historical influence spanned across Asia and Europe. This lightweight lacy scarf features a repeating motif depicting the Japanese folding fan, known as a sensu. The knitted scarf was also originally invented for functional reasons, but has transformed into something knitters can use as an expression of creativity, inspiration, and cultural significance.
Shown in Sierra Rose Alpacas Fingering Weight yarn, we recommend Malabrigo Mechita instead!
