St Andrews Harbour in Scotland, is an historic fishing harbor inspiring a 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 ‘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.
