Lady Gansey

Knitting
March 2015
Aran (8 wpi) ?
20.5 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
in Stockinette
US 7 - 4.5 mm
955 - 1528 yards (873 - 1397 m)
About 32 (36¼, 39¾, 44, 47½, 51¾)" (81.5 [92, 101, 112, 120.5, 131.5] cm) bust circumference, buttoned with 1½" (3.8 cm) overlap. Sweater shown measures 36¼" (92 cm)

Th is sweater was modeled after traditional men’s ganseys, which have stockinette-stitch bodies and a mix of cabled patterns at the shoulders. To add feminine versatility, this version is a cardigan. Knitted in one piece from the bottom up, it’s quick to knit and has minimal fi nishing. The yarn shows off the cables beautifully!
