Mocha Gansey Style

My own design done on a Brother 940 with the GC. I used 2 x 2/15's merino 50 %cashmere 25%, silk 25%. In hand knitting terms this yarn equates to 375m per 100gms.

Now THAT is a sweater the menfolk in my life would actually wear!! Love the color and the bold, yet not too fru-fru chevrons up the front.

What a gorgeous sweater! A real man's sweater with just the right combination of stitches and yarn.

Hi Colin,
Love the new sweater. I'm knitting a ribbed sweater right now for my nephew. But it looks nothing like what you come up with. Great work, Hope to see more soon,

I loved the 2 sweaters - your patterning is terrific - and as usual,
the neck band is terrific.

Oh, and the dogs are so pretty. (and this from a cat person!)

Hi Colin,

Hard to choose but I think I'll take Micah and the Mocha Gansey style..
Superb neckbands as usual!

good luck tomorrow.

Hi Colin,

Those sweaters are very smart, as usual.
Well done.

Hi Colin,
Great result on both sweaters. I have been meaning to get my GC going since I saw your sweater in the magazine. I must get everything together and do some knitting.

As usual your jumpers are beautiful and your designs notable.
I agree with your thoughts absolutely,and fear we are losing the right to
express them,
