The Inishere Shawl, which is named after my Aran Island home, combines traditional Aran stitches in an easy-to-wear rectangular shape. The centre panel features intertwining diamonds, like the patchwork fields of my Aran home, filled with seed stitch and garter stitch, and a ‘hugs and kisses’ cable running each side. The seed stitch from the diamond centres is echoed in the shawl border. This shawl highlights the joy of Aran knitting: there is something different to do in each row, yet once you can read your knitting you can put away your pattern thanks to the repetitive nature of each individual element. The Inishere Shawl was originally published in Knotions magazine.
Both written and charted instructions are included, and only one needle size is required. I would consider this an intermediate pattern - the cabling is not particularly difficult, but three cables are worked at the same time.
