The Stitch Story crochet along was inspired by the myths and legends of Geansaí Árann jumpers (sweaters) that originate from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland.
This pattern is free here on the blog but it’s also available in an e-book on Ravelry There is a small charge for the downloadable 46 page PDF e-book (payable once). This PDF has the full pattern descriptions, charts and information all in one place without adverts (as requested).
