Designed for fall, this


sweater irreverently
inspires itself from the
gansey tradition with its
split garter welts and
horizontal patterning at
the upper chest. The
similarities end there,
however: the yarn used is
a luxurious blend of
merino, silk and
cashmere and the patterns
include openwork --
features rarely seen on
fishermen's ganseys.

I strongly suggest
learning to cable without
a cable needle, as
practically every other
row has a multitude of
crossings.

Be sure to wash and


block your swatch as the
tension can change
afterwards. Since this
particular blend did spread and lengthen after blocking, the pattern calls for
measurements before blocking: refer to the schematic for final measurements.

Hate to swatch? Emulate Elizabeth Zimmerman by making the hat first and using it as
your swatch.

Those who'd prefer a pure wool garment would do well to look to Needful Yarns' Wool
Gatto.

After working the flaps, the sweater body is knit in the round to the underarms, then
divided, and the upper front and back are worked back and forth. The sleeves are also
knit in the round to the underarms, then the sleeve caps are worked back and forth.
