Juniper Cardigan Pattern by Jennifer Lauren Handmade
If you like versatile cardigans and charming details, The Juniper Cardigan might be just what you’re looking for.
With saddle shoulder details and a flattering V neckline, snuggle up in comfort with either the long-line boyfriend style paired with your favourite jeans, or go for some vintage flair with the cropped version worn over the top of your favourite 50s sundress.
The Juniper Cardigan has you covered on those chilly Spring and Autumn nights with long or 3/4 sleeve options; it’s also the perfect canvas for colour and pattern blocking.
Juniper has it all: for the ultimate customised cardigan use different colours and patterns to show off the saddle shoulder detail, as well as the separate waistband, sleeve cuffs and neckline pieces.
Juniper spans across sizes 6 to 24 and is a multisized pattern.
The Juniper Cardigan should be made with stable knit fabrics that have a good amount of stretch across the grain. A minimum of 30% stretch and weight of 180gsm is recommended for best results, such as our sweater knits.
Cotton/lycra (spandex/elastane) combinations work well for light weight seasonal cardigans, while heavier weight merino and wool blends are great for layering in cooler weather.
