Named for a small town in rural County Clare in the West of Ireland, where the weather in Autumn and Winter almost always calls for a cozy sweater.

This pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down, with set-in sleeves and an A-line shape. The central cable is a nod to the Celtic inspiration for this pullover, giving not only the bulk to withstand any Irish Winter, but also the mystic elegance associated with the Green Country the world over.

Whether your ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle or not, with this sweater you’ll always feel at least halfway home.

This pattern includes both written instructions and full charts.
