♫ The Music ♫
The Arrochar Alps overlook the small village of Arrochar nestled near the head of Loch Long. The Maid of Arrochar is a slow air first published in 1789 and attributed to Scottish composer John MacDonald of Dundee. This air is still popular especially among Cape Breton musicians.


Arrochar is a short-sleeved, raglan cardigan with a dropped back hemline and upper-back, wrapped-rib band.

Details

A cable and lace panel is worked down both front edges; a matching motif graces the upper back as well as the sleeve cuffs.
The remainder of the body is worked in Stockinette stitch.
The eyelet border at the neckline incorporates the single buttonhole closure; the bottom hem and sleeve cuffs are finished with an eyelet border to complement the neckline.
A wrapped-rib band is added to the upper centre back to give some discrete definition to the silhouette.
Construction

Worked top-down beginning with a Double Chain Cast On (picture tutorial included).
Fronts, back and sleeves are worked as one unit to the underarm; sleeves are then placed on hold to be worked later.
Both charts and written directions for charts are included.
