  • Taking the classic Alain sweater as a reference design, six different knitting processes are used.

    To the west of Britain in Ireland. To the west of Ireland, three small islands floating in the Atlantic Ocean are called the Aland islands. There is almost no topsoil on the island, which is very poor. People here mix gravel and seaweed to cultivate potatoes successfully and make a living. And the world-famous Alain sweater was born here.

    Alan jumper, also known as cable jumper and Fisher sweater. There are many legends about Alan's sweater, such as "love and faith" and so on. But later these are proved to be interesting myths invented by a yarn merchant in the 1940s. The real cable patterned sweater was invented from 1890 to the early 1900s, with no morals or belief in it. In 1891, the government set up the United district board (a committee to alleviate local poverty) to help poor families through the period of unemployment and potato shortage, and encourage local people to knit sweaters for sale. By the beginning of the 20th century, the cottage industry had sprung up. The Committee trained weavers to make complex patterns with honeycomb, herringbone, and double diamond stitches. These innovative local women also created many different stitches themselves. This is the kind of sweater that goes across the sea and is known to the world in the name of "Aran".
