It's HARD to Find Men's Fisherman's Sweater Patterns!
I tried searching for fishermen's sweaters / aran sweaters on Ravelry and on blogs. It's HARD to find any!!!! If you have a pattern to share, please do!

Are you meaning the traditional patterns where the design was on the chest only? Can't you just knit any sweater like that? I found 3 pages of aran men patterns on Ravelry. Most are not free if that's what you mean. Here's a few that could be altered to be traditional.

Here's a book or two.. Maybe your library has them.. ?

I posted a pattern for a Portuguese fisherman's sweater last winter. I will post it again now. It uses a cluster stitch as a background, and I recommend practicing that before starting a sweater. I am almost finished with the one I am working on now - using double-stranded Lion Wool and WoolEase in heather grey and ultramarine variegated yarns - gives a nice "marled" effect! Audrey V

Sounds great! Please post a link to the Rav page and/or photos here so we can all admire it and bookmark it.


I've never heard of a Portuguese fisherman's sweater. I really want to see it.

No I didn't want to be too specific, I searched for any. Got a lot of aran weight things instead. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, beautiful sweaters. They are already knitted or the price is for yarn and pattern?

I like the St. Andrews and Land & Sea.

Checkout Paton's yarns on line for a man's cabled crew neck sweater in their Classic Wool. They show it in a deep forest green. I have about 3/4s of it done in a heather grey. Don't know if it will suit you but it's a free pattern and I like it. It's certainly worth a look.
