Product Details

I designed a sweater that used classical gansey/guernsey motifs in a modern, fashionable way. I used a classic off-white color, but the yarn has some slub in it and I paired it with a strand of glitter laceweight to add some modern appeal. It’s great fun researching old gansey motifs: one of them is called "Polperro Laughing Boy". I just had to use that one…

It's knit in the round, bottom-up, with set-in sleeves that are knit separately. It’s bordered with garter, included the picked-up and knit neckband. It has negative ease.

Pattern repeats note:

All the different motifs have different repeat lengths, so there is no amount of stitches that would work for all the motifs. Some motifs will end abruptly at the marker.
