Richly textured sweaters and accessories are the focus of Storey's (Nordic Knits) latest collection, which takes motifs and design elements from traditional Aran fishermen's sweaters and transforms them into contemporary fashion. The designs range in complexity from a simple cardigan with a cabled waistband and cuffs to a fully cabled and beaded shrug and include items for both men and women. Directions for all specialty stitches are included, but knowledge of basic knitting stitches and skills is assumed. VERDICT Aran knitting is perpetually popular, and Storey's collection has broad appeal thanks to the wide variety of designs.
