By the Orchard Gate ~ single printed pattern** 

Nearby to where I live, there is a derelict orchard whose grounds I love to explore. As I wander through its rusting gates and dive beneath its trellised archways, I cannot help but sense that once this was a place of romance.  ‘Meet me by the orchard gate,’ I nearly hear a voice whisper, lost in the past and in the underfoot crunch of fallen branches. 

By the Orchard Gate is the sort of cardigan you might wear to meet a lover on a chilly country night. It is simultaneously cozy and dressy, understated and flattering. Worked top down with contiguous sleeve construction, features include semi-scooped neckline, A-line bodice, vertical lace panels and corded button bands. Suitable for solid, tonal, and lightly variegated yarns. Designed by Ailbíona McLochlainn
