Helena is a lace cardigan with set in sleeves and deep ribbing accents at hip, sleeve cuffs and the over-sized collar. It's knit in one piece from the bottom up until the armholes, and the button bands are worked as you go to reduce the need for seaming and finishing at the end. The lace stitch pattern is provided in both written and charted format to suit your preference.
