Lighthouse Gansey

$5.00 $3.00

A top-down sock featuring a traditional gansey motif on the upper leg, with ribbing to the toe, so that the total effect is of a stately lighthouse. Worked in a heavier sock or sport yarn (as shown), it will be sized to fit a man’s foot; in lighter-weight yarns on smaller needles, it will be slimmer to fit a female foot. Pattern designed by Anne Hanson.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 9.5 inches in circumference to fit feet up to 10.5 inches (8.25 inches in lighter yarn to fit feet up to 9.5 inches)
YARN: 375 yards of heavy sock or sport-weight yarn for men’s medium (socks with total foot length of more than 11 inches will require more yardage); 425 yards of lighter-weight sock yarn for the narrower sock
GAUGE: 7 stitches per inch on size 2 needles; 8 stitches per inch on size 1 needles
NEEDLES: US 1 or 2 double-pointed needles
