This Wirkin Gansey (working sweater) is knitted from the top down. It features a moss stitch collar folded double, garter slip cuffs and body rib, and textured shoulders for extra durability. The yoke, body and arms are knitted in the round, while the collar and ribs are knitted in the flat. The warm, earthy colours are a celebration to the soil that feeds us.
This jumper is knitted in double knit weight. The design is a loose, casual fit for an average sized adult male. The amount of yarn in this kit gives the approximate measurements listed below. If you are planning to make a bigger size you will need to add yarn proportionally.
