Cathy Payson

for Nashua Handknits

NHK25-3 Oversized Guernsey

We are hearing about the renewed popularity of 80's knitting silhouettes-- i.e., dropped straight shoulders, flat sleeve caps, and generous proportions. Payson knows: "This garment is designed to have 6” to 12” [15 to 30.5 cm] of wearing ease for a deliberately roomy, oversized fit." Which spells comfort for both men and women. This slouchy piece sports the gansey design on the back and front yokes only; the rest of the garment is plain st st. Startlingly simple to make, the written instructions don't even fill a whole page. The chart and schematics are large. From Nashua Handknits Book 25, North American Designers 5.
