♫ The Music ♫
My Lagan Love is set to a traditional Irish air. The second verse, often omitted by performers, speaks of Leamh-beag - believed to be a small village along the River Lagan.

Leamh Ard is one of three hats in the Leamh series.

It is the deepest version and can be worn slouchy or with the brim turned up for extra warmth. It is worked bottom up with only easy 1/1 and 2/2 cables. The ribbed nature of the fabric makes it very ‘springy’ – it will stretch up to 3” / 7.5cm in circumference.

Sample shown in Knit Picks Chroma (70% Superwash Merino Wool, 30% Nylon; 396yds per 100g) in Weather Vane 26476.
