The Design

"Enduring tradition and all-weather style."

We love the tradition and history of ganseys—warm, durable, supple garments originally developed to protect seafarers from the cold and sea spray! This cute pillbox hat, with a flat circular top, pays tribute to that beloved sweater. We’ve provided two traditional gansey pattern charts, but you can also create your own!

We’ve knit this Seaworthy Gansey Cap in Rauma 3-tråds Strikkegarn, a wonderful, woolly workhorse wool. A 100% Norwegian-made yarn, from the sheep’s fleece to the mill it’s spun in, 3-tråds Strikkegarn is a light DK-weight yarn with lots of springy warmth. Resistant to pilling, it’s a perfect fit for this sturdy, all-weather cap!
