- Gansey Gusset-Heel Sock
At the November 2005 meetings, Katherine Misegades presented a lesson about Gansey knitting.
In her book, Knitting Ganseys, Beth Brown-Reinsel discusses the details that make sweater construction identifiably Gansey — welts, plain area, definition welt, patterning, seam stitches, gusset.
This sock was designed for Guild members by Katherine as a small practice project for learning these techniques.
You may download a free, printable PDF file of the pattern by clicking here.
This pattern was revised 7/10/06 to include more detail for turning the heel.

- Peri Switzer’s Multicolor No-2-Alike Hat
This makes an adult or large child’s hat
and is a good way to use up small balls & leftovers.
For a smaller hat, cast on fewer stitches
keeping a multiple of 4 plus 1.
- Using 3 strands of worsted weight acrylic yarn and leaving a tail 8 to 10 inches long, cast on 41 st on a 10 1/2 or 11 circular needle (11 will make a little larger hat).
- Join round by knitting 1st st & last st tog.
- Grab tail and k 2d st, then p 2, k 2 repeating untilthe piece is 7 to 8 inches long (or as long as your hand), knitting the tail in with the
stitches on the 1st row.
- As the small balls run out, lay the new yarn in with the working yarn, overlapping for 8 or 10 inches so that for that short distance
you have 4 working strands.
- Dec in pattern to 8 st rem and cut yarns about 8 inches long.
- Thread this 3-strand tail into a large needle & pull through the 8 rem st to draw them tightly. Weave the rest of the tail down into the inside
of the hat.
