Knit an Irish Aran Scarf from Irish Wool
About the event
During this workshop, you will learn how to craft a traditional Aran Knit scarf in the surroundings of a 19th century Georgian Dublin building. Using Irish wool yarn, sourced and spun in Co. Donegal, this experience is a fantastic introduction to both cable knitting techniques and traditional Irish design.
Aran cable knitting originated off the west coast of Ireland within the boundaries of its namesake home, the Aran Islands – a neat group of Gaeltacht isles nestled in the cold, restless waters of the Atlantic; their history long, rich and holding tight to an Irish-speaking status to this day. It is here that the ‘Aran Jumper’ hails from, this notable knitwear incorporating the very techniques this course will pass on to you.
