Pattern Details

This handknit pattern written by Bonne Marie from ChicKnits introduces a cardigan version of the gansey sweater often worn by the 19th century fishermen of British coastline communities. While it features distinctive stitch patterning from the era, the pattern incorporates modern styling, fit and techniques.
