This pattern was reissued under a new name with a 2X size added. See 90047AD Inishturk Fisherman Sweater and Tam for the updated version.

The Aran sweater with its richly decorative patterns had its beginnings on three tiny islands off the western coast of Ireland. Today, this style of knitting is prized the world over. In our own version, the 100% Fishermen’s Wool shows off the braided cables and textured stitches perfectly.
