As part of the Captiva Collection, the North Cap Cardiana (Cardigan + Ruana) uses stitch work inspired by the gentle gulf waves lapping the shell-speckled shores of Captiva Island and is the perfect breezy layering piece that your wardrobe has been calling for. The pattern includes instructions for both a cardigan and ruana version.

Constructed flat in seamed panels with the sleeves worked in rounds, the North Cap Cardiana uses a combination of eyelet stitches for an airy drape and a delicate braided texture sure to catch all the compliments. The bottom edge and sleeves have a textured wave border for the perfect finishing touch.

The North Cap Cardiana is designed to have 8-14” of positive ease at the bust for a beachy, flowy look. It is written for 4 sizes (from xs-5x) and includes directions to completely customize the length and width so that anybody with any body can rock this garment!
