Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

Please note, as of 7/23/2020, this pattern is no longer available on Ravelry. When Ravelry redesigned their website in June 2020, their new design immediately created accessibility issues for people. The redesign has caused migraines in some users after just a short exposure to the site, and for others, it has triggered seizures. The response from Ravelry over the past month has been incredibly defensive, with no assurances that the site will get fixed, or providing any information on how they plan to go forward. As such, I cannot in good conscious offer my patterns on Ravelry any longer. I do not have an alternative site set up, and I do not know when I will get to it. If you want to knit one of my patterns, do not ask me to send it to you - instead, I ask you send the powers that be at Ravelry a message asking them to honor the inclusiveness that they have called for for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folx and fix their site so it is accessible for everyone.

This sweater is a love letter to New Mexico, in knitted form.

The idea for this cardigan came to me after a day spent in Taos. The yarn and buttons, which were purchased in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, were chosen because bright yellow and turquoise remind me of this special place. The pictures were taken on a back road near Dixon, New Mexico, and near downtown Santa Fe.

Taos is a top-down cardigan with an eyelet and garter stitch yoke, thick bands of ribbing along the bottom and cuffs, and three-quarter length sleeves.
