Beth Brown-Reinsel (knittingtraditions.com) has spent her career studying Nordic, British Isle, and Baltic knitting traditions, and sharing this knowledge through patterns, classes, and workshops. We are thrilled to be offering Beth's Gansey class, a six-session workshop that will cover every aspect of this traditional British Isle fisherman's sweater, including Channel Island cast-on; traditional knit/purl patterns; underarm and neck gussets; and much else. Students will choose from two sweater patterns: cardigan style: "Classic Gansey Cardigan"; and pullover style: "Newhaven." Both patterns are viewable on Ravelry.
After you have registered, we will contact you about ordering your yarn for this class. Beth has specified that, in order to get the correct gauge for the patterns, students should use 3-ply Rauma Strikkegarn (a traditional Norwegian yarn) for the pullover; and Elemental Affects Cormo Worsted for the cardigan. Both are available at Bazaar Girls. You will be able to choose from multiple sizes of pattern and many colors of yarn.
Enrolled students will be invited to a Zoom trunk sale to help them choose yarn for this project. Saturday, July 17 from 4-5 Pacific time.
