Sunk Island Gansey How To

(PDFs for charts, below).  Pattern as written is for gansey on the right – only difference between v.1 and v.2 being the less cluttered sleeves on v.2.

You could, of course, knit the sleeves plainer or fancier or however you like ’em.

NB: Chart B needs to be put together Sheet 1, 2 and 3 in that order, so moss st panels either side of Humber Star are next to side seam stitches.
