The complex stitches of fishermen’s sweaters in Ireland’s Aran Islands have become a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The stitches have come to represent auspicious wishes and elements of island life. The honeycomb stitch in this navy blue turtleneck represents the rewards of hard work, while the diamond stands for fishing nets, the key to success on the harsh North Atlantic.

Croagh Patrick, where Ireland's patron saint spent 40 days fasting, is the country's most famous pilgrimage site. On "Reek Sunday," the final Sunday in July, tens of thousands of pilgrims climb its 2,500-foot peak. Nestled at Croagh Patrick's feet is the picturesque town of Westport, with majestic mountains on one side and the wild Atlantic on the other. It is here that our worsted wool pullover is made. Its thick-knit collar is inviting on cold days, and the three-quarter buttoned neck allows for easy layering. The Celtic knot design is inspired by the 8th-century Book of Kells.

In just a century since they first appeared, the textured wool sweaters of the Aran Islands have become “as tenacious an international symbol of Ireland as the harp and shamrock,” writes fashion historian Deirdre McQuillan. It wasn’t until the home crafts movement at the end of the 19th century that Aran’s distinctive patterns became known around the world. Today, from tourist shops to fashion shows, one can find sweaters based on stitches that were invented by grandmothers and great-grandmothers only a few generations ago.

At the mouth of Galway Bay in western Ireland lie the three small islands that make up the Arans, Inishmore, Inishmaan, and Inishneer. The ocean pummels the islands’ sheer cliffs, creating a landscape that Aran knitwear historian Alice Starmore calls “not surreal but simply magical.” It’s in this remote region that the stitches of classic Aran sweaters were invented and evolved.

Whitby Fisherman Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

In the northern British Isles, thick wool pullovers known as guernseys kept fishermen warm and dry during long runs at sea. Villages came to be known for particular knitting patterns like this one, originally named for the Yorkshire port of Whitby. Whitby sailors also worked fishing seasons in the Scottish port of Peterhead, and the style is sometimes called Buchanhaven after Peterhead’s small local fishing village. This classic nautical sweater is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, using virgin wool raised and spun in Yorkshire.

Ruggedly built for outdoor adventure but classic enough for evenings in town, this Shetland wool cardigan is an excellent choice for travel. Knit by a 135-year-old mill in Hawick, a town along the Teviot River in the southeastern Scottish Borders known for its knitwear. Along with angling in the local rivers, Hawick outdoor culture is marked by the annual Common Riding, where hundreds of riders on horseback celebrate a 16th-century victory over an English raiding party. This Shetland wool sweater is designed to withstand the brisk weather of the British Isles. Its natural water-resistance and moisture-wicking properties keep you warm and dry. Suede elbow patches and quilted suede on the chest help resist wear and tear from bags and camera straps. Suede trim on two front patch pockets.
