Traditional Dutch Ganseys for Children

Over 40 Sweaters to Knit from 30 Fishing Villages

Stella Ruhe


Stella Ruhe presents over 40 adaptable sweaters to knit for your little ones, based on the classic, minimal and quietly-stunning jumpers of Dutch fishermen.

Based on the original designs shared by families and discovered in archives, Stella has created recreations of these historically important garments for our contemporary life that ooze classic style with modern minimalism. The sizes of the ganseys run from 1- to 14-years old, but can easily be adjusted to any child’s size by following Stella's straightforward measuring instructions. Each jumper is accompanied by knitting charts, the pattern repeat clearly shown for easy garment adjusting, a diagram of the jumper and styled, modern photography.

With a wealth of fascinating background information and historical photos of the original designs alongside every design, this is an inspiring book for the ambitious knitter looking for unique, classic knitwear, and a brilliant read for anyone interested in craft, culture and heritage.
