The Drumlin Cardigan is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Drumlin pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.
Cardigans are essential wardrobe pieces for most of us – comfortable, classic, and versatile. This one started when Clara Parkes and I talked about what makes a quintessential cardigan, after I had gotten her stunning Cormo 2.0 yarn.
We concluded that the quintessential cardigan has to be a great indoor garment, but also needs to function as a jacket when the weather is right. It needs pockets. It should be comfortable, but not too baggy. Shaped, but not too tight. Workable with lots of different kinds of shirts underneath.
I think this one has you covered - and I hope you like it, too. (I haven’t taken off the sample since I finished it.)
If you were not able to purchase Cormo 2.0 while it was available, any worsted-spun, traditional wool yarn will make a great substitute. For a commercially-available yarn that will produce an extremely similar final product, try Imperial Yarns Tracie Too.
The exquisite buttons on this sweater were created by Melissa Jean Handknit Design and are highly recommended.
(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.)
