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

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

Who doesn’t love an open cardigan? They’re comfortable and flattering. Make several for yourself out of different
favorite yarns, and wear this great style year-round. This version has a comfortable long length, classic 2×2 ribbed trim, and enough coverage that it won’t be falling to the sides all the time. It’s shown here in an average fit, but would also work well in a close fit. (Relaxed fits are trickier with a worn-open style – the cardigan will tend to move around more as you wear it.)

This sample was knit in Classic Elite Firefly, a great blend of linen and viscose that’s beautiful, drapey, and functional. It wears well over time, it’s very comfortable to knit, and comes in a wonderful color palette. I used the color “Bark”, at a gauge of approximately 6 stitches per inch, and this 40″ (ish) sample used just over 10 balls.

(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.)
