6081 Oscar and Little Oscar (age 5 up)

We had a dream of a sweater we'd like to see a man or boy wear, and this is just about it. Men in gansey styles look just fantastic, and this one has traditional elements (the split garter welt, the patterned yoke) without any of the ones that make them more challenging to knit (underarm or neck gussets or saddle strips at the shoulder). Originally, of course, ganseys were worked in a 5 ply tightly-spun wool, to throw the stitches into high relief; this version, in a luxurious Egyptian cotton, accomplishes a more lustrous result in less time. An absolute classic.
