Item details

Ganseys are the traditional British fisherman’s sweater from the 1800s. Some of the techniques used in making a gansey sweater will be learned by knitting this fingerless mitt. The Channel Island Cast-on and garter stitch split welts which are optionally overlapped will make up the
gauntlet. Small cables and traditional knit/purl motifs will be worked in the hand. A thumb gusset
reminiscent of the lower half of an underarm gusset is surrounded by the small baby cables. In
addition, raised increases, and the lovely picot hem finish are included.

The kit includes one skein of Gansey yarn, in one of the four colors shown above, and the pattern. The pattern includes charts and suggestions for further reading on the subject of ganseys.
