Esholt takes Yorkshire’s gansey tradition and gives it a modern twist, with set-in sleeves and waist shaping to provide a figure-flattering silhouette.

The pictured sample was knitted with Stolen Stitches ‘Nua’ in Kitten Fluff (main colour) and Frog On The Wall (contrast colour).

Whatever size you make you will only need one 50g skein of your chosen contrast colour. According to which size you plan to make you will need 9(10:10:11:12:12:13:14:14:15:16:17:17: 18) 50g skeins of your chosen main colour.
