Richard Searle Classic Cornish Gansey Company Kit
Skill Rating: Experience necessary
Inspired by this photo by Lewis Harding of Polperro fisherman, Richard Searle, I have recreated the more fancy chest and armstrap pattern
Kit contains: relevant amount of 100% British Worsted 5ply Guernsey Wool for size selected and in the shade of your choice, 5x 40cm long steel 2.25mm knitting needles plus full pattern, charts for lower front/back, upper front/back and sleeve straps. Comprehensive pattern instructions walk you through each step and covers how to read charts, tips on completing the arm gussets, the three needle cast off plus how to care for your finished Gansey.

The Richard Searle Gansey has more complex patterning detail and I would recommend this style for knitters with experience
