Knitting Ganseys:
A knitting classic! Gansey sweaters were standard wear for nineteenth-century British fishermen. With their intricate knit-purl patterns, dropped shoulders, and easy fit, these handsome, comfortable garments are still a pleasure to wear and knit today.

In Knitting Ganseys, Beth Brown-Reinsel teaches you how to design and construct these durable favorites. You'll master several different cast-ons, cables and increases, shoulder straps and gussets, and more. The author teaches you the step by step techniques for knitting a gansey by knitting a small sample gansey (it will fit a teddy bear). The chapter on designing and planning uses the percentage system, guaranteeing perfect fit.

In addition to the pattern for the miniature sample gansey, patterns for six full-size ganseys are included. This book includes black and white photos for all details and techniques, clear sketches, worksheets, more than 100 pattern motifs, and easy-to-read graphs.
