Paperback by Shelagh Hollingworth. 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, wind swept 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.
