In Alaska, many men and women set out at the break of dawn to bring fresh fish back to market. Woolies help to keep them warm in the salt spray and cold winds of the Pacific ocean.

This pattern was designed for The NetLoft Alaska, a wonderful little shop in the north. Check out their Cordova Gansey Project here, you can check out our new Bowline sweater pattern here!
