Free Knitting Pattern for a Man’s Old Way Gansey Sweater.
Skill Level: Intermediate
“For some knitters, knitting a sweater without step-by-step instructions is intimidating; for others, following instructions is tedious. The book Knitting in the Old Way by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts and Deb Robson (2004, Nomad Press) is for knitters who fall somewhere in between—those who need information on the basics of sweater construction, but who also want the freedom to choose yarn, gauge, finished size, and st tch pattern. Ann Budd used the book’s approach to design this classic “fisherman’s” pullover, filling in the basic “sweater recipe” with a rich palette of cable and texture stitches.”
