Book Description

15 Oct 2010
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. Knitting Ganseys is designed for knitters of every skill level and provides all you need to know to create modern versions of these old-world classics. Reprint of the original edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Instructions 17 Feb 2013
By Mrs. F. Huxley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want to start knitting ganseys, this is the book to start with. Beth's instructions are easy to follow and the use of well draw diagrams assists with understanding the construction of a gansey. This book got me started and gave confidence to start customizing the templates.
