Child’s Knitted Gansey

Pattern: Knitted Gansey

Source: Handknit Holidays

Yarn Sub: James C Brett ‘marble’

Yeah, this is the sweater I’ve been working on for my son. It doesn’t fit, AGAIN. Since the yarn is cursed, I am giving it to my little nephew instead of redoing it again.

The pattern is really nice though and I think I may try again in another wool, another time 🙂 The yarn was really nice to work with even though it is acrylic.

I really love this sweater! The pattern has really great shaping though the waist. I did end up lengthening the sleeves and body somewhat, but I almost always have to do that. The one issue I had was the hood. It ended up soooo long! I think the pattern must be a little wonky there. I left it because it didn’t matter that much but I wouldn’t do it the same again.

I want to knit this again…with the hood either adjusted to normal size or maybe with a collar instead.
