Hello Iain Knitters!
At long last, a truly better Iain. I have upgraded the entire pattern to our new format and all the charts have been improved. I have also tried to make the neckline, saddle, and hood instructions more clear. The pattern is still only partially written, and you still must depend upon the charts at the neckline shaping and the hood, but it is an advanced pattern, after all. The file is pretty heavy because I wanted to make the charts clear.

I hope these changes make the project more fun for you. Thank you for the Iain love!

A somewhat traditional Aran sweater makes the stitch patterns work in unusual ways as the cables subtly emerge between patches of basket weave. It sports a pullover style with hood attached which carries the pattern as well. Drop saddle shoulder continues one of the cable motifs from the hood on the full length of the sleeve.
