Juno Cardigan Knitting Pattern
Juno is a stunning lace knit cardigan with tie front and pointed back culminating in a small lace edged collar. The dramatic sleeves come past the wrist finishing with pointed detail on the back of the hand, anchored by a loop around the middle finger. Inspired by the New Romantic era and possibly a touch of Downton Abbey! Relatively easy to make with a four row stitch pattern creating a central feature which is eye-catching and makes Juno a wonderfully flattering garment to wear.
