Help me to find Irish (Aran) patterns!

I received an order from an Estonian man whose wife comes from the Aran Islands. He asked me to knit a pair of gloves for her using patterns combined of both Estonian and Aran origin. I tried to search from the Internet but found very few. It only confuses me because I'm not certain what is authentic Aran and what is not..
So I really hope for your kind help, please provide me with some knowledge and further reading, share some nice links of Aran patterns etc.!

  1. Maybe Elizabeth Lovick can help you or knows someone who has a good knowledge on authentic Aran knitting:
    It sounds very interesting!!!

    Ehk on ka sellest lehest natuke abi? Olen kuulnud, et arani mustri puhul on oluline ka kandja kuulumine ühte kindlasse perekonda.

  3. Did you check in Ravelry? There are lots of Aran patterns in there.

  4. Ma soovitaksin Alice Starmore raamatut "Aran Knitting", http://www.amazon.com/Aran-Knitting-Expanded-Edition-Crochet/dp/0486478424/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344260913&sr=8-1&keywords=aran+knitting . Audentsuse kohta ei oska sõna võtta, kuid kogu on väga põhjalik.
