Deganwy is one of the 11 modern, minimalist patterns featured in Issue 2 of Making Stories Magazine

“The Deganwy jumper is inspired by the traditional fishermen jumpers and ganseys, knitted ubiquitously up and down the coasts of the UK for the men who went to sea by the people who loved them. It was an article of clothing that signified love, connection and belonging.

This jumper is a modern take on a traditional design, this time a top-down easy to wear unisex design, with a dropped shoulder.

It is designed to be worn with 3-4 inches of positive ease and end at mid-hip; the design has a cosy folded neck and relatively narrow arms.” - Theresa
