The Fana sweater has it's roost from the area around Bergen on the west coast of Norway. As most of our knitting it was often knitted in natural colours like grey and white or black and white. I don't know when it started, but for the last 50 years or so it is often seen in a duck egg blue and white. Since the 80s it's common in pinke and white too. I like the pattern for it's clean and structured look.
