NOTE: This design was originally published by Knit Picks in their Woodsmoke Collection. The initial 2-year period of exclusivity with KP. ended and so I have revised the text to clean up any ambiguities and errors. This is the most current version of the design.

Named for the middle of the three Aran Islands, this vest will give the extra layer of warmth you need to keep out even the most brisk of sea-borne winds.

The single color and intricate cabling maintains the tradition of the time-honored Aran Sweater, with tweed to provide an interesting twist on the conventional look that doesn’t take the spotlight from the show-stopping cable motifs.

Designed to minimize the fussiness of finishing, this vest is knit flat in a single piece. With no seams and self-finished edges - i-cord around the armholes and garter stitch at the front openings - you’ll have this ready to wear in no time.

This pattern includes both written instructions and full charts.
