A tribute to Fisherman’s Sweaters of the past, Gone Fishing incorporates eight separate panels, each with a different stitch pattern, all framed in garter stitch. The pattern is very detailed, with step-by-step instructions. If you can knit and purl, you can make Gone Fishing.

The pattern includes a cowl and a scarf, and the option of two gauges. Two files are included, a large print 24 point font file, and a paper-saver 12 point font file. Files are tablet and screen reader friendly. Reference charts are over sized and created especially for loom knitting.

Skill level: knit and purl and some fun techniques that build on knits and purls. The pattern is written step-by-step, and there are also large charts of each section to help you “see” the stitch patterns.

Gone Fishing was a Mystery Loom-a-long during July, 2018 in the Loom Knitters group. The thread is available for reading with extra tips and inspiration.
