Alice Starmore's Aran Knitting 
New and Expanded Edition

Re-released by popular demand

A definitive guide to designing and knitting in the Irish Aran tradition, from a world-acclaimed knit designer.  In this guide, Alice Starmore presents a fascinating history of Aran knitting and an analysis of the traditional style, in addition to a complete workshop in technique, pattern, and design.   Includes 60 charted patterns for stitch designs.  All of the patterns published in the first edition, including the very popular Celtic designs, are here, plus two new designs.  Patterns for caps, sweaters, and shawls for women are presented, and also some designs for men and children.

Beautiful photography, historical drawings and pictures, including an entire section on museum examples of Aran knitting, provide wonderful context for this dissertation on a most popular style of the knitters' art.

A chapter on designing your own Aran sweaters is a wonderful addition to take your knitting to the next level.
  Beginning and advanced knitters alike will be inspired and challenged by this magnificently illustrated book. Starmore’s legions of fans will also celebrate the book’s return, especially in an expanded edition.
