for Nashua Handknits
NHK31-3 Gansey-Inspired Top
Melanson has a degree in Celtic Studies; it informs her work to a magnificent degree. Here are traditional gansey elements: the Channel Islands Cast On (explained here), diamond knit/purl patterning writ both small and large, garter ridges. But the shape is completely modern. Here are neat little set-in sleevelets and a shaped waist, shoulders, and back neck. There's a lot going on here, but the pattern is very detailed. Left and right neck diamonds are charted separately. From the Nashua Handknits Book 31, North American Designers Book #6.
