The Classic Fisherman

Posted on: Tuesday, January 8, 2013

The Irish Classic, which originated in the Aran islands has been around for centuries. Families, clans, islands would each have a pattern that was distinctive to each. Some stitch patterns have a traditional interpretation, often of religious significance. The honeycomb is a symbol of the hard-working bee. The cable, an integral part of the fisherman's daily life, is said to be a wish for safety and good luck with fishing. The diamond is a wish of success, wealth, and treasure. The basket stitch represents the fisherman's basket, a hope for a plentiful catch.
