Getting Started

Pattern : Gansey Wristers by Kalliopi Aronis , available here:

A pair of wristers I knitted with some Supersoft Wool yarn, in a heather blue colorway, for my mom's birthday.
 Depending on the lightning, patterns are more or less visible, but lots of shades arise: some sweet pinkish blue, some blueish green, some greyish violet. So beautiful and dreamy...
I made some modifications, because I was off-gauge (CO 48 sts instead of 60), and because I wanted the wristers to be shorter. I skipped first Gansey pattern, and I made 6 rows between patterns: K, P, K, K, P, K. 

How incredibly countless are all the patterns that can be knitted with only knit and purl stitches ! I definitely want to learn more about Gansey style...
