“Claggan Island” is a worsted weight sweater knit in A Hundred Ravens “Epona”. Claggan Island is a cozy pullover perfect for sipping hot tea in on a cold day. The design was inspired by my family’s Irish roots. What would an Ireland inspired sweater be without some lovely cabling? Along with the cabling you will find modern knitting techniques including top-down, saddle-shoulder construction, short-row bust shaping, decorative waist shaping, and more! Visit my Ravelry store to see my full “Irish Roots” collection, inspired by my Irish heritage.
