This fishing shirt has all the practical features of the traditional fisherman’s gansey. It is worked in the round, with underarm gussets, and sleeves worked from shoulder to cuff. It is an ideal exercise for someone starting out in the gansey technique, for while it possesses all the classic features, I kept the pattern deliberately simple.

When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders. Follow Us to keep informed about our latest posts and updates.

Some of the designs and extra amendments available exclusively from Virtual Yarns for the book The Children's Collection.
