The Arran Sweater
Arran Sweater Pattern with history sheet £4.99
The Arran Sweater is designed for Aran weight wool.
The knitting pattern combines moss stitch, cables and patterns from traditional fishermen’s sweaters, known as ganseys, to represent the sea, the mountains and the “many stags” of Arran.
Our sweater was knitted in wool produced at the New Lanark World Heritage Site which you can order on-line from New Lanark.
“I really love my completed sweater, which is in the New Lanark Aran, Limestone – a beautiful marled grey colour. Going to knit another couple in different colours… … KW “
“Loved to have the explanation of the patterns and stitches as this makes the whole thing more meaningful. VG”
