Traditional Aran Knitting
 by Marianne Kinzel

This is Dover's reprint of the original 1962 edition.  Great historical research! 

This book is a t
reasure for those who want to learn more about Aran cable and stitch patterns.  There are 78 individual patterns, written out line-by-line, that you can combine for your very own original Aran sweater.  Also, 20 different projects including historical garments, like a "fishing jersey" and lots of up-to-date modern pullovers, cardigans, and accessories.  Includes a spectacular full length coat.

 Includes several interesting chapters on history and tradition, plus a very useful chapter on how to design your own unique aran sweater.  The many stitch patterns can be easily combined to make one of a kind scarves and vests too.  .

Not for unadventurous beginners--the materials are outdated (we will include some conversion charts).  You must be willing to swatch to gauge, as most of the yarns called for are not readily available.  There are abbreviations that are no longer common, although once you translate them you won't have any difficulty at all.  Line-by-line instructions for the stitch patterns, no charts.
