On cool mornings when the grass is crisp with frost and your breath is caught like smoke in the air, Juniper will envelope you in a tender hug and capture the warmth of your bed for just a moment longer.
An addictive knit, worked from side to side, Juniper smooshes your favourite shades of fingering yarn from one to another in a strikingly simple eyelet lace pattern. She’s the perfect way to enjoy playing with your favourite colours and uses three skeins of semi-solid, gradient or speckled yarn. Top her off with three plump tassels (there’s a link below to a tassel video tutorial I’ve made).
With her simple garter and easy wavering lace, Juniper is ideal for when you’re out and about, knitting and chatting, or curled up with a cup of coffee and feeling like an relaxing, rhythmic knit. She’s enjoyable for both experienced and beginner knitters and full of stitches that are a breeze to master.
