Gansey accessory bundle

Two popular gansey style patterns at a great price

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 These were originally made in Blend no.1 and have now been reknit in Neighborhood Fiber Company Capital Luxury Sport.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.


    The neat brim is worked in garter stitch at a tight gauge with short row shaping so that it’s longer over the ears — a minimalist approach to ear flaps. The crown is softly gathered with rapid decreases and joined with a 3-needle-bind-off worked from the inside. This creates a tidy seam detail more often found on ready to wear.




    A decorative Channel Islands cast-on gives the bottom garter stitch band a knotted edge and incorporates another traditional gansey element. The cowl is completed with a textured rib pattern and all of the stitch patterns look great when worn in either direction so there’s no need to worry about top and bottom.
