Knitting Dutch Ganseys with Marie Greene

April 6 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Knitting Dutch Ganseys

Class fee $75
On Saturday, April 6, Marie will offer two classes at the store. The first is Knitting Dutch Ganseys. In this brand-new class from Marie, you will learn the fundamentals and history of this beautiful, traditional seamless sweater style. You’ll even knit a tiny gansey in class! Marie will discuss Gansey history and traditions and an overview of Gansey construction. She will show you how to knit bragworthy sweater armpits and two techniques for shoulder grafting. Information will also be given on understanding gussets as well as fabric density and gauge.
The photo below is of Marie’s January Gansey. What isn’t shown is the back of the sweater which is adorable. Please take a moment to view other knitters’ projects, particularly the one by YarnFolkAnn. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/YarnFolkAnn/january-gansey
