Sandy Road Pullover
This sweater is a tribute to the traditional gansey sweaters worn by British fisherman in the 19th and 20th centuries. The sweater motifs are said to represent a particular village or family, making identification of those lost at sea an easier, albeit tragic, task.
Sandy Road is an oversized, long sleeve, hip length, unisex gansey-style sweater designed to be worn with 6-8" of positive ease. There are six different motifs worked across the body and sleeves. All pieces are worked flat and sewn together at the end. Stitch patterns are charted.
