Lush and pretty, with hints of complexity this cardigan has a detailed lace yoke and simple stockinette body. The design was inspired by the voluptuous abundance of English gardens and the large-scale floral motifs of classic English textiles.  Adult sizes have 3/4 length sleeves and optional waist shaping.  This pattern is from Handmade in the UK, a collection of 10 lace patterns from Tin Can Knits.  The pattern includes 8 child sizes and 8 adult sizes.
