Irish Aran Knitting

Wendy brought this beautiful jumper along a few weeks back. It is hand knitted and she had got it because it is her Irish clan pattern. We worked out it was a 10 or 12 ply spun wool and that it would have taken a considerable amount of spinning and knitting to achieve this. It is just beautiful.

There is information about Irish Aran clan patterns on the Aran Sweater Market site. There are also some free patterns for Aran knitting on loveknitting.
