Mary Ellen Carter
The Mary Ellen Carter is one of Stan Rogers' classic salvage ballads. Although it tells the story of the ship's sinking and rescue efforts by its former crew, the lyrics' broader message of triumph over adversity is what makes it a perennial favourite.
Mary Ellen Carter is a saddle-shoulder pullover worked from the top down, with an elegant cable that runs from the saddles all the way down the sleeves to the cuffs; the body is worked in Stockinette stitch. The cuffs and crew neck are worked in a 1x1 rib and are finished with a tubular bind off (picture tutorial included).
Right and left are referenced as the garment is worn.
The pattern is written for intermediate knitters who can follow 'continue in pattern' directions with ease. Both charts and written directions for charts are provided.
