PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE DIGITAL VERSION OF KNITTING GANSEYS WITH BETH BROWN-REINSEL, THE DVD. IF YOU PREFER THE HARD COPY DVD, YOU CAN PURCHASE THAT THROUGH MY WEBSITE (www.KnittingTraditions.com/product-books-dvds).
The British Ganseys evolved from undergarments around the turn of the 19th Century. Because fishermen wore them, the style traveled to Scotland and the Netherlands along with the fish who swam the North Sea. The fluidity of the Gansey style is apparent in the individuality of each garment made, while all were created within a certain architectural framework.
