Elizabeth Margaret Designs
The Julie Cardigan is as practical as it is beautiful. The all-over lace was adapted from a vintage lingerie knitting pattern from the 1940's. The breathability of this lace creates a garment that can be worn from Spring through Fall. Dress Julie up or down, she floats just as wonderfully whether being worn for a walk in the park or an elegant summer wedding.
Available in 9 sizes to fit a bust range of 30-62" bust, this cardigan is knit flat in pieces and then seamed, a great project to work on in the warm days of July and a great way to focus on one piece of lace at a time. The end result is far worth the effort for a cardigan which hardly looks handmade but rather like something that might be sold in a high end lingerie shop.
Impress yourself and your friends with this elegant piece that you didn't realize was a wardrobe necessity! Improve your technique while working step by step shaping in the easy to memorize charted lace pattern. Julie is an adventure which rewards you with a gorgeous new garment upon completion.
