Renowned for her feminine knitwear, designer Jennie Atkinson has created this sweet summer cardigan, which will look lovely paired with your favourite blouse or dress. The beautiful fabric combines stripes of delicate colourwork with panels of lace. Jennie’s design features a deep, square neckline, short puffed sleeves, and deep ribbing at the waist. It has been knitted in Rowan’s Summerlite 4ply yarn, which is a soft, matt cotton that comes in 16 vintage-inspired shades.
