Shown above are two views of a Scarborough pattern with straight (split) welt instead of the usual ribbed welt. Note also the “false seam” which runs up the side of the Gansey (actually just a purl stitch), which gives an indication of back and front. But rest assured that the Ganseys are all knitted entirely in one piece.

Below are some of the Ganseys, including vintage Flamborough Marine garments, from a recent exhibition at Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.
Henry Freeman (29 April 1835 – 13 December 1904) was a Whitby fisherman and lifeboatman. Born in Bridlington, Yorkshire, Henry worked in his youth as a brickmaker, but with the decline of the brick trade Henry turned to the sea and fishing. He moved to Whitby and became a fisherman and a lifeboatman. He was the sole survivor of the 1861 Whitby lifeboat disaster when a freak wave drowned all his companions. It was his first mission and he was the only member of the crew wearing the newly developed cork flotation jacket. Henry was a lifeboatman for more than 40 years, 22 years as coxswain. He participated in many rescues and saved many lives and became a respected ambassador for the lifeboat cause and a prominent spokesman for his fellow fishermen.
