Filey Gansey Third Fitting July 19 2013
A hot day in the studio for trying on our Filey Gansey. It's an all year business
though when each sweater takes upwards of 130hrs to hand knit.
Step & Cable pattern worked down to the elbow. The rest of sleeve will be
finished in plain stocking stitch. Knitted using four needles in the round to
achieve the perfectly seamless fit.
The devils in the details. Pattern matching the 2 x 2 rib collar to the front panel.
The front has been decreased to fit in the new slightly lower crew neck.
The ends of yarn are still left loose at this stage. If the the neck needs
adjusting for fit the whole collar will be pulled back out to be re-knitted.
With the longer length of the Filey Gansey you have the option of turning up
the body hem, much the same as the classic Flamborough Gansey.
Almost there. The first sleeve is set into the armhole.
Front and back are now joined with a raised shoulder seam for extra strength.
