The hat’s knit designs, which combine diamond and cable patterns, are from the isolated Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. These patterns, which have been around for more than a century, depict the ropes and nets used by Aran fishermen. The designs, which were once knit into heavy wool sweaters, are believed to portend luck and success in one’s pursuits. Over a century ago, rural fisherman on the isolated Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland began using knit designs inspired by woven cables and diamonds for their work sweaters.
Available in three magnificent hues, each with distinct shamrock accents at the base: the timeless natural white, the deep navy, and the stunning Kelly green.
We also have a match green shamrock scarf in 100% Merino wool.
