The timeless design features beautiful cable and diamond patterns surrounding a raised shamrock. The shamrock is an Irish motif that has been recognized as the symbol of Ireland for centuries, making the throw a tribute to the Emerald Isle. The shamrock is related to Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, who is believed to used it to describe the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans. The diamond stitch depicts the shape of the fields on which farmers lived and worked in the Aran Islands and symbolizes hope for wealth, prosperity, and success. The ends are finished with traditional Irish cable knitting with a reinforced rib knit for durability and to prevent fraying. The cable stitch is a representation of the Irish fishermen’s ropes and symbolizes good luck and a wish for an abundant catch. The blanket is made in Ireland by Saol, one of the leading manufacturers of contemporary Irish knitwear, accessories, and throws.
