More than 20 fully illustrated project patterns for knitters of all abilities. Known and prized around the world in the form of the "Irish fisherman's sweater," Aran knitting originated generations ago in the chilly, windswept islands of Galway Bay. The seafaring Aran Islanders developed a distinctive method of crafting heavy wool into snug garments resistant to the stormiest weather. These clothes also happen to be extremely stylish, with distinctive, highly textured patterns of cables and ropes. Suitable for novices to the Aran style as well as for experienced knitters, this guide offers start-to-finish advice. More than 20 patterns, illustrated by 117 close-up photographs, include: - Traditional fisherman's sweater - Family sweater, with round, polo, or V-neck - Cardigans - Jackets and coats - Hat, mittens, and scarf set - Cushion covers Traditional Aran Knitting also explains the history of the craft and the meaning behind the coded "messages" woven into the unique Aran patterns.
