#C882 John’s Guernsey
Yarn: Sport Weight
Sizes: 2 throuh 12
This Guernsey was
designed more than two decades ago to celebrate the birth of my son.
John’s Guernsey also gives a masculine mate for the Gretel (Pattern
#C876), which is a popular design in our collection.
The body, knit on #5
Circular needles, is worked in Plain Knit decorated with bands of purl
rows. The yoke, knit on #4 Single Pointed needles (the
smaller needle helps to keep the stitches crisp), is adorned
with several handsome and ancient Scottish Fleet patterns.
The Guernsey traits of
knitting in the round, the drop-shoulder and the decorated yokes all
contribute to make this a timeless design. Knitters also enjoy that
endearing ‘ganzee’ feature– when your knitting is done, your sweater is
done. Not a single seam!
