Yes, it’s finished!
And it’s not even midnight just 9:22pm EST and the child’s gansey moves to FO (finished object) status.
Here’s the front…
And the back…
- Knitting the gansey in the round is great – no seaming to do at the end.
- Side seam stitches really do help define the sides, as if there were actual seams.
- Underarm gussets are great for allowing extra give – perfect for kids clothes.
The pattern came from the book, Knitting Ganseys by Beth Brown-Reinsel (Amazon-link). She does a great job of breaking down the construction of the garments.
