Ardmore is a tubular colourwork cowl with an original brocade-style stranded colourwork pattern. The join is decorated with a pretty Latvian Braid, breaking up the pattern so you don’t need to worry about matching row gauge to get the size you want. The exposed three- needle bind off is incorporated into the braid, so no grafting is required. Single loop shown.
