Unique Knits – Timeless Style



# Ruched Back Cardigan
Currency Converter

Miu means beautiful feather in Japanese. Miu cardigan is inspired by layered swan feathers. The cardigan features delicate feather lace motif all around the lower part of the body, which is gathered at the centre back. This creates elegant ruffles and contours the garment around the body shape. It is a seamless set-in sleeve pattern so you don’t have to worry about sewing at the end, matching the rows and stitches of sleeves and the body. 

This is a downloadable pdf knitting pattern.
