Official MC LAUGHLIN Clan Aran Pattern!

(Maiden name)

I did some research and found that this is the official aran cable pattern for the Mc Laughlin (Mac Lochlainn, Mc Gloughlin, Mc Laughlane, Mc Laughlin, Mc Lochlin) clan! OK, according to this website...


It is said that the pattern was worn by the entire family as sort of an "identity" so that if the fisherman should be drown, he could be identified weeks later by the sweater pattern. So technically, any family can have an Aran sweater pattern, not just an old Irish clan!

Clicking on the image, you'll see ALL the info for the patterns and supplies.

I think I just may have to figure out the pattern and make it myself! I have the charts for most of these knitted textures.

Thank you for visiting. Hope you came again!
