Inspired by and named for the ever fashion conscious secretary employed by the revered sleuth Hercule Poirot in Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Miss Lemon is a vintage style cardigan I can only hope would meet with her approval. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up in one piece with dart waist shaping at the back and 3/4 length or short sleeves. A high crew neck, buttons and front lace panels worked in the aptly named English Lace pattern complete this tea-time ready sweater.
