This is the Aran pattern, which so many knitters have been inquiring about. It’s shown on the cover of Taunton Press’s Knitting Tips & Trade Secrets. Fans from around the country recognized the design and wrote me informing me that Shalor Cardigan was, indeed, featured on the book cover!
Knit on #6 needles it is best worked with smooth, evenly spun yarns. Raw wools add another dimension to Arans, as the lanolin-rich yarn gives body to the design and a little water repellency to the garment. A tour de force for the expert needle worker.
