We love Gansey patterning and decided to go into our archive and reknit two old favourites. These were originally made in Blend no.1 and have now been reknit in Neighborhood Fiber Company Capital Luxury Sport. The cowl is made in Hollins Market and the hat in Reservoir Hill.

We are currently offering the pattern bundle free with one skein of Capital Luxury Sport. 1 skein is enough to knit a hat or the smaller version of the cowl.  No coupon necessary, simply add both to your cart and the discount will be applied automatically. Or if you already have the perfect sport weight in your stash, buy the bundle for £6.50 for both patterns.

While we were working on this bundle we noticed our tutorial for the cast on used for Alleumer didn't seem to be linked anywhere.

The Channel Island Cast On is a decorative long-tail cast on that forms small knots along the edge. Traditionally used on gansey patterns it looks particularly good with garter stitch and 1x1 rib. 

The cast-on is shown worked with a doubled strand of yarn forming the knots but can be worked with a single strand for a subtler appearance.

.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
