As in all of the Irish Fisherman's sweaters the knit pattern signify important virtues of the life of the Irish Fisherman.

The rope or cable stitch = strength.

Honey Comb stitch looks like its name and is made by twisting stitches forwards and backwards across the panel. It is a tribute to the bee. It was considered a lucky omen if a fisherman saw a swarm of bees before setting out to sea - a good catch was assured.

 

This pattern is on the front and the back and down the top of each sleeve.

The knit is fairly tight the the wool feels firm.
