Yours. (Bridgefield is a CustomFit pattern and will be generated to fit you specifically.)
This pattern is available from for $12.50.

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

Bridgefield is an easy-going pullover that combines an unspeakably luscious yarn with a relaxed silhouette and interesting texture. The deep V-neckline, mid-hip length, and long sleeves make this sweater a joy to wear, and the Double Moss Stitch front is fun to knit as well.

I worked the sample in a worsted-weight blend of wool, cashmere, and silk: Spirit Trail Fiberworks’ Verdande, in color “Wild Blueberries”. The sheen and softness of the yarn, along with its drape, make it a beautiful match for this comfy, day-in-and-day-out sweater. I highly recommend it.

The yarn is on the heavier side, so if you use similar materials I recommend working Bridgefield from the bottom up in pieces for stability. The back and sleeves of this sweater are Stockinette, and the front is worked in Double Moss Stitch. 2x2 ribbing trims all edges.

(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.)
