The Fleetwood Gansey Pullover

The third and last pattern in Kate’s Lockdown collection is launching today!

The Eccleston Jacket

A CustomFit design By Kate Atherley

A classic casual drop-shoulder pullover, using classic gansey-style patterning: a mix of ribs and garter ridges.

Style it with jeans for comfy weekend wear, throw it over your pjs for relaxing at home on a chilly winter evening. In the photographs, it’s worn with an average fit for a tidy – almost tailored – styling. For a more traditional or casual looks, choose a relaxed or even oversized fit.

You can make the pattern on CustomFit now at or buy credits for the pattern here:

This collection is all based on a single yarn that Kate found deep in stash last year, while in COVID-prevention lockdown. It was leftovers from a Holiday installation at a high-end department store in Toronto – hence the rather delicious shade of red. It’s not a yarn that’s commercially available, sadly, but it’s very similar in texture and gauge to Berroco Vintage Chunky. Malabrigo Chunky and Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes would also be good substitutes.
