Great Gansey Socks




The Great Gansey is a cuff down, slip stitch heel flap, round toe sock, inspired by the simple but beautiful geometric patterns and tightly knit fabrics of the traditional gansey or fisherman’s sweaters from Britain, Ireland and Scotland. Patterning is created from a combination of knit and purl stitches, which makes it a relatively fast and easy project.

Sizing is included for a range of gauges - guide is given for choosing a size based on 7, 8, or 9 stitches per inch.

Motifs are charted for those who prefer knitting from charts and also translated to text, for those who don’t like charts.
