Juniper Berries is a lovely sweater with a beautiful lace yoke. It’s feminine without being overly romantic, a wardrobe staple that goes with everything.
The sweater has a special construction where the yoke is worked from bottom up using the provisional cast on and the rest of the sweater from top down. The reason for that is the beautiful lace pattern which looks better when worked from bottom up.

The lace pattern is both charted and written. The pattern also includes photo tutorials for the bobble (an easy version with no turning) and for the German short rows.
