Though openwork patterns featured only briefly in the second phase of the Aran sweater’s development, I think there is a place for them in the right design. This cardigan is light, feminine and crisply textured; being knitted in gansey yarn. The centre pattern in the photograph above is the “lacy chevron of infinite charm” that Aran knitters took from Woman & Home in 1937.
