Cable Knit Aran Sweater Coat

Deriving its name from an archipelago off the coast of Ireland, Aran sweaters have a rich history, symbolizing Irish clan heritage and the fishermen and farmers who first wore them. This beautifully textured Cable Knit Sweater Coat is an example of this proud ancestry, displaying multiple cable patterns in keeping with Aran knitwear, each pattern representing a different aspect of Irish culture. The decorative plaited pattern that graces the front of this sweater much like a vertical stripe, for instance, embellishes the sleeves and the capacious patch pockets as well, exemplifying the interwoven strands of life. Meanwhile, the moss stitch, depicting growth and abundance, partners with the blackberry stitch, illustrating nature, to add to the overall beauty of this sweater as well as to its sartorial story.

This mélange of tradition and history blends wonderfully with the contemporary flair offered by this Cable Knit Sweater Coat. With full-length sleeves and its longer length, this sweater provides the look of a coat along with the comfort and ease of a sweater. The wide, flared collar is anchored by a hardwood button on each side, a nod to the Irish tradition of adorning clothing with wooden buttons. Two deep pockets further enhance the look of this sweater and are perfect for warming hands on a chilly day or for providing a hands-free means of transporting small necessities.
