Ireland’s reputation for knitwear is renowned. The iconic fisherman’s sweater has been widely replicated by designers across the world. Yet, there’s something truly special about giving or receiving a sweater by an Irish designer.  While the traditional cable in cream is a perennial favorite, there are many contemporary interpretations to consider.  Here’s a sample of knitwear from Ireland.
