Alice Starmore: "I wanted to develop an Aran-style design based on the crisp lines of twisted stitch patterns set against the geometry of the diamond shape and contrasting textures. I have done this with Inishmore by aligning the centre diamond panel with the zigzag panels at each side so that the alternating textures of purl, moss stitch and twisted rib are harmoniously constrained within the extended geometry."
