Pattern description from Knitting Workshop: “My first Aran, made on two needles before I knew any better. After many years of wear, the cuffs went, but the elbows were saved by Heart Patches.”

Materials: 3-4 ounces of wool. 16” circular needle (work in garter-stitch back-and-forth) of a size to give you the above GAUGE.

This pattern may be found in the appendix to Knitting Workshop on page 155. There is a photo on page 126.
