gansey, version 1

Yes, this isn't a traditional gansey stitch pattern. It's an encoding of the word gansey as lace. More information at my blog.

See this blog post for more information.

Gansey version 1 coordinates with gansey version 2. The bottom of the swatch shows two repeats version 1; the top shows one repeat of version 2. The decreases are slightly different.

Thanks to my Patreon supporters for supporting my stitch pattern design work!
