“Aquinnah’s design was inspired by the rocky shores of the Brannock Islands on the northwest end of the Aran archipelago, windswept and lonely. A solitary lighthouse serves as a reminder of the Aran fishing tradition, and of the families who waited for the fishermen to return home.” – Kerry Robb
Aquinnah wraps you in plush warmth and classic cable motifs: five-rope Aran braids and honeycomb cables. Four-stitch cabled twists and little strands of twisted rib punctuate the primary motifs and vary the scale; I-cord stabilizes the long edges and keeps the look clean and linear. The pattern offers three different sizes of wrap: a small stole in Shelter, a wider version in Quarry, and a 7-foot magnum opus in Shelter large enough to cuddle into with a loved one. Choose a colour that coordinates with your home design, as you’ll want to leave this handsome accessory draped over your favourite chair to admire when you’re not wearing it.
