Knitting Kit: An 1880s Working Gansey
120 165 $120.00 - $165.00
A complete kit for knitting your own traditional fisherman's sweater! Kit includes a printed pattern, project bag, and enough Frangipani Traditional Guernsey Wool to complete a sweater in your chosen size.
This working fisherman's sweater couldn't be more traditional! Classic unisex design, knitted seamlessly in the round, and great in a variety of colors, this sweater kit is a perfect introduction to gansey knitting.
Available colors, from left to right above: Claret (a rich dark red); Natural (cream); Navy (classic); Damson (a deep purple); Cornish Fudge (a soft tan/beige); and Falmouth Navy (a darker, slightly greenish navy, one of my favorites).
Additional colors may be available on cones - please contact me for current inventory!
