The Spruce Point Cardigan is part of my Spring 2018 Remarkable Yarns Collection: a set of four sweater patterns and three accessories designed to work equally well with both Rosy Green Wool and Crave Yarns Caravan. (It was also previously released, in the hourglass silhouette shown, for a make. wear. love. retreat event.)

Spruce Point Cardigan Patterns are available in one of two ways:

  • As a traditional pattern for $8, in the silhouette and sizes listed on this page, or

  • As a CustomFit pattern (on the CustomFit site), for $12.50 and written to your choice of silhouette, sleeve length, gauge, and size.

Either way, it’s a classic V-neck cardigan with fresh-looking Broken Rib trim. Broken Rib looks similar to traditional ribbing, but doesn’t pull in as much – a great match for the relaxed, A-line shaping of this design.

The traditional pattern you can purchase here for $8 comes in the sizes listed above.

Custom Spruce Point Cardigan patterns are available in the exact size and dimensions you choose.

The traditional Spruce Point Cardigan pattern is written for a gauge of 24 sts and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch.

(A custom Spruce Point Cardigan will be written for your own personal gauge, from fingering to bulky or anything in between.)

Spruce Point Cardigan, like the rest of the Remarkable Yarns spring 2018 collection, is meant to work equally well with two yarns:

  • Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy 100% Virgin Wool, Organic Merino Extra Fine; machine washable 350 yds / 320 m per 100g

  • Crave Yarns Caravan 70%SW Fine Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Camel, 10% Mulberry Silk 354 yards / 324 m per 100g

The gauge and yardage requirements are identical for either yarn. Cardigan is shown in Rosy Green Wool in color “Taupe”: 4 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8) hanks of either yarn for the sizes listed above

Whether purchased in traditional pattern form or created custom, Spruce Point Cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up, with set-in sleeves, and then seamed.
