From the moment you put it on, this handsome shawl-collar cardigan is guaranteed to make you feel powerfully connected to the Emerald Isle, and, in particular, the Aran Islands, the region responsible for striking designs such as these. Here, the main stitch in use is the diamond stitch, which is said to represent wealth and prosperity. At its inception, in fact, it was modeled on the the nets of the Aran Island fishermen, who wore it out to sea as a good luck token in the hopes that they might return home with a large catch of fish.
On this Men's Shawl-Collar Aran Cardigan, the insides of the diamond stitches are filled with the more diminutive moss stitch, named after the Carrageen moss seaweed that the Aran Islanders collected from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to these age old stitch patterns, this men’s cardigan boasts a design that’s simply timeless, and its flattering fit and v-neck give it a modern edge.
Perfect as a gift or as a special treat for yourself, this striking Aran cardigan is sure to become an instant favorite. You won’t know how you ever got by without it!
