Gansey Herring Fish Free Knitting Pattern

Knot these fun Gansey Herring Fish with free pattern shared by NITA BRUCE. The ‘Gansey Herrings’ were created for the Crafting History project at the Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The ‘Gansey Herrings’ celebrate the herring industry in Great Yarmouth and the fisher girls who gutted and knitted their way along the coast following the fish. Each has a unique pattern, adapted from either a traditional fisherman’s gansey design or a pattern created to reference the collections in the museum and surrounding area. Inspiration for these new patterns ranges from the nets, ropes and baskets used in the fishing industry to a butterfly bomb and off-shore wind farm. You could have a lot of fun with this pattern, knit a whole school!
