  • Product Description

      Learn all about the techniques used for knitting ganseys with this comprehensive sourcebook from experts in the subject, Di Gilpin and Shelia Greenwell. The authors explain these techniques with step-by-step instructions and artworks so you can replicate these details in your own work.

      Discover all the techniques you need to make an authentic gansey sweater with their special features which were developed for warmth and comfort in what were often, harsh conditions out at sea. 

      This collection features a comprehensive directory of 150 gansey stitch patterns so you can choose your favourite designs and motifs and learn which patterns were important to the fishermen in different areas.

      There are also 10 patterns for garments and accessories so you can practise your skills including a child's traditional gansey sweater. Modern takes on the traditional gansey are also featured, using lighter weight yarn and design details. Among them are a beautiful sweater with a gansey yoke; a contemporary take on the fisherman's kep; a gansey stitch cowl; a pair of mittens and socks; and light linen tank top.
