Dutch Traditional Ganseys

Dutch Traditional Ganseys
Dutch Traditional Ganseys shown $29.95
Between 1875 and 1950, Dutch fisherman wore sweaters, or ganseys, characterized by their distinctive stitch patterns. Knit in hearty wool of blue, grey, black, or natural, and often with each woman's own patterns, these sweaters could link their wearers to specific fishing communities. Stella Ruhe, using historical patterns and motifs, has recreated these sweaters with modern yarns. Inside, you'll find 60 gansey patterns for men, woman and children, supplemented with old and new photographs, charts, sketches and plenty of historical tidbits for a truly enriching knitting experience.
