Seaworthy Gansey Cap Project - Regia 4-ply Version

Seaworthy Gansey Cap Project - Regia 4-ply Version

"Tradition and style in a doubled 4-ply."

When we first developed our Seaworthy Gansey Cap, we paired it with a traditional 5-ply Guernsey yarn. Curiosity led us to a pragmatic discovery: there is as much fiber in two strands of sock yarn as there is in one strand of 5-ply Guernsey yarn. So we experimented with Regia 4-Ply and got a lovely, dense, beefy result that was right on gauge!

We love the tradition and history of warm and durable gansey caps, and that they're handsome on men and women alike. Our pattern comes with two traditional gansey pattern charts, but you can also create your own using this pattern as a starting point. Share it with family and friends–start your own tradition!

You can pick up the pattern and all the fabulous colors below, or go to Regia 4-ply for more information about the yarn.
