A treasure trove of bold cables and rich textures, this sweater carries on the tradition of a classic Aran pullover with a wide panel of diamonds flanked symmetrically by rope twists and traditional braid. A few contemporary tweaks create a cozier sensibility, forgoing a fitted hem and cuffs, easing the neckline, and allowing for a generous ease. This relaxed look prioritizes warmth and comfort while creating an heirloom sweater that’s sure to be a crowning achievement for any cable knitter.

Inis Aran is a pullover sweater knit entirely flat from the bottom up, with a wide crew neck and set-in sleeves. Intended to be worn with 6” of positive ease.

This pattern is fully charted.
