This is a gansey for Margaret’s sister Gail, knitted 2003-2004 in Frangipani navy blue wool, pattern from Mary Wright, p. 61, Jim Curtis’s gansey.

It’s a very effective combination of cables, diamonds and chevrons, with a moss stitch panel below the patterned yoke. (I increased the length of the moss stitch panel from the original just because I think it looks better.) The navy blue yarn, which is more blue than navy, sets off the pattern perfectly. Again, it shows how effective a half-patterned gansey can be.
