Designed for sport weight yarn.
This Guernsey was designed more than two decades ago to celebrate the birth of my son. Johns Guernsey also gives a masculine mate for the Gretel (Pattern #C876), which is a popular design in our collection.
The body, knit on #5 Circular needles, is worked in Plain Knit decorated with bands of purl rows. The yoke, knit on #4 Single Pointed needles (the smaller needle helps to keep the stitches crisp), is adorned with several handsome and ancient Scottish Fleet patterns.
The Guernsey traits of knitting in the round, the drop-shoulder and the decorated yokes all contribute to make this a timeless design. Knitters also enjoy that endearing ganzee feature when your knitting is done, your sweater is done. Not a single seam!
Sizes 2 through 12.
Available in adult sizes in worsted weight: Pattern #882.
