The Keeley Gansey combines traditional Gansey elements with modern feminine details. Underarm gussets, short-row shoulders, and ribbing insure a close, comfortable fit, while lace panels add interest to the front, back and sleeves. A change in stitch patterns accentuates the waist and a picot bind-off finishes the hem and cuffs.
