Patterns for Guernsey’s Jerseys and Arans

BY Gladys Thompson

Description
From the Scottish Hebrides to the Aran Islands, for hundreds of years the fishermen of the British Isles have gone to sea wearing Guernsey and Jersey sweaters. This book presents 82 genuine folk patterns for both lighter weight Jerseys and heavier Guernseys. Gladys Thompson gives instructions row by row for knitting fronts, backs, sleeves, and necks, in the traditional fashion. Each set of instructions is also accompanied by a diagram of the pattern and, often, by a photograph of the finished sweater. And for an inside, historical look, Thompson also includes interesting information about the people who gave her the patterns for this book.
