♫ 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 Mor is one of three hats in the Leamh series.

It is a cabled beanie-style hat. It is worked bottom up with easy 1/1 and 2/2 cables. The ribbed nature of the fabric makes it very ‘springy’ – it will stretch up to 2” / 5cm in circumference.

Sample shown in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes (worsted, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 110 yards /50g) in Cloud 23432.
