Inlet is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Inlet pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

Inlet is part of the Winter/Spring 2015 CustomFit Basics Collection.

It doesn’t get a whole lot more classic than a crew-neck cardigan. This one features a perfect neckline for layering, 3/4-sleeves, and showcases some of your most stunning buttons. All edges are trimmed in twisted 1×1 ribbing. Amy is wearing this sweater in an average fit, but it looks great in a relaxed fit too. (I only recommend choosing a “close” fit with cardigans if you’re going to wear them over an extremely thin layer like a cami.)

This sample was knit in Harrisville Designs Highland, an utterly fantastic 100% virgin wool spun locally in New Hampshire. It wears like a dream, comes in about a billion colors, and is one of my all-time favorite sweater yarns as it just keeps getting better and better with age. I used the color “oatmeal”, at a gauge of roughly 4.5 stitches per inch, and this 40″ (ish) sample used just north of 4 hanks.

(One quick note on yardage in CustomFit patterns - the yardage requirements listed here are based on my preferred gauge for the recommended yarn. And while I’ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make your pattern in the size and gauge of your choice. It’s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If you’re not using the recommended yarn, and/or you’re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettig’s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.)
