Scottish Ale


A warm & rugged Aran Sweater for men (or women!) I designed this sweater for my friend, whose mum used to knit him sweaters as he was growing up, then rip them out and re-knit in a larger size as he grew. This sweater is going to serve more as a coat to be worn over other layers as he visits construction job sites.
