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.
My patterns are low vision and screen reader accessible. The text is black, Arial and large print 24 point font. All of the directions are fully written out and no charts are relied on to complete the patterns. No italics are used. They are screen reader and tablet 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.
