This is certainly an interesting sweater! I would be tempted to try it except for the holes along side the "fan," and that's probably just me. The plain garter stitch is amazingly pretty in a pattern like this, or maybe it's the color. I wonder what it would be like to run small ribbon or just yarn through the holey part?
