St Andrews Harbour in Scotland, is an historic fishing harbor inspiring this classic ensemble of fisherman gansey style socks, mitts, and tam.
Remember my series of fishermen neck gansey posts from last year?
Well, I’ve returned, with a fishermens gansey for your feet !
And for hands….
There’s an option for kilt-hose style turned cuffs ~~ adorned with kilt flashes or ribbons tied beneath cuff and folded down, this variation resonates the Scottish Highlands!
Option for legwarmers, anklewarmers, & boot cuffs….
Alive O’ !!
A bonus gift included of “Petra’s St Andrews Harbour Tam” !
Because nearing the end of my pattern writing for the socks, my good & dear friend Petra had been busy test-knitting the socks, but was also (secretly) adapting the sock pattern to a proper sea-worthy tam…
So beautiful, easy to knit, and a Must Have! I am knitting one straight away ~~ but more on the tam knitting later. For now I am working like a team of knitting fisher lassies to get all this pattern submitted and sorted out.
Happy Spring everyone!
I have pushed to have this ready on the Vernal Equinox and and shared in short series of fishermen posts, and at last here it is ~~ done & dusted!
Pattern found on Ravelry HERE.
