    Could the Yanaka work in a short pile faux fur?

    Yes, I think so! I haven’t tried it, but I think it could look very cool.

    How about making the Yanaka in a ponte? Would that be stable enough? Thanks!

    I haven’t tried it but it would probably work. Would love to see it if you make it!

    Will this pattern work for a plaid fabric?

    @whimsy hi Mary, depends on what you want to have “work”.
    From the pattern pieces, and the way the underarm gusset becomes part of the sleeve, if you want to match the pattern of a plaid that sounds like a nightmare.
    If you don’t care about pattern matching, or want to embrace the “lines” of the pattern by highlighting them with mismatched plaid then go for it.
    If you’re referring to the weight/handle of the fabric rather than the pattern, then yes, it can work in a flannel type fabric, you’d just have to underline it with something more substantial.
    I’ve made Yanaka in a fairly drapey tweed coating and underlined it with a stiffer cotton canvas.
