Vintage Irish Sweater Aran Hand Knit Cardigan Crowley Clan Ladies


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage Irish sweater, aka Aran fisherman knit sweater, that is hand knit in a cardigan style.  I believe that the pattern is referred to as the “Clan Crowley” design, please correct me if I’m wrong.  This Irish sweater has cable stitches, diamond stitches, and honeycomb stitches, representative of good luck, wealth and work, as well as Irish moss stitches, representative of nature.  The sweater closes with eight faux leather plastic buttons and has raglan style sleeves.  There is a small pocket at either bottom side.
