What you need to know

A perfect gansey for babies and toddlers, with a neck flap with button to allow for easy wear, and knitted in the traditional way.

These beautiful patterns are mostly from the East Neuk of Fife; zigzags, herringbone and parallel lines, along with a very special 'seeding' pattern.
