Arranmore is a yarn that calls out to become a sweater and we took much inspiration from it’s Irish roots for this pattern. Inishmeane is a sweater you’ll love to knit and absolutely want to wear all winter long whether on a long walk or enjoying a pint in your local pub on a winter evening.
This sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up with turned hems. The body is worked first in stocking stitch to the underarms, then the front and back are worked flat. The shoulder stitches are left live on holders while the sleeves are worked. The cable detail running up the outside of the sleeve is then worked with the live shoulder stitches to form a saddle shoulder. Finally, the tall collar and front plackets are picked up and worked flat.
