Part of the ebook Ghosts: historiographies, cultural manifestations, and the knits they’ve inspired, Galoshans is an oversized, drop-sleeved sweater which utilizes fingering weight yarn and large needles to create a loose, lacy look.

Imagine yourself on a chilly autumn day, wrapped in the warmth of a close-fitting shawl collared sweater, draped in the lovely airiness of a lacy pullover.
With this comfortable knit, you’ll be ready for a relaxed evening of autumn time fun.
Worked from the bottom up, this simple sweater is the perfect item to throw on over your favourite t shirt for an extra layer of warmth.
