Knit yourself a gorgeous lace cardigan, perfect for layering, making it a wonderful addition to your trans-seasonal wardrobe.
Balloon sleeves and deep cuffs add a little drama to the simple shaping, balanced by the wide hem ribbing.
Designed to be worn cropped at the waist, it’s simple enough to add additional length if preferred. Team your favourite colour with fabulous buttons and make this your next go-to garment.

Boronia is a small flowering shrub, native to Australia. Blooming in colours from pale pink to deep magenta and all shades in between, I adore this plant for its incredible scent that signals Spring.

Pair your Boronia Cardigan with the Boronia Hat for a dynamic knit duo.

Pattern Notes
Please note this pattern is charted only, there are no written instructions for the lace sections.
Suitable for a confident knitter. The Boronia Cardigan is worked bottom up, beginning with the hem. Additional length may be added at this point. Backs and fronts are worked flat and are joined at the should with a 3 needle bind off. Stiches are picked up for the sleeves and worked top down to the cuff.
