THE STORY
On a recent weekend getaway to the coast of the PNW, my husband and I discovered the Kilchis Point Reserve - a beautiful trail system nestled into a quaint little town. I knit up this easy-wearing cardigan to take back the next time we visit!

NOTES

  • This sweater is worked seamlessly from the top-down, beginning with Judy’s Magic Cast-On at the top of the Left shoulder. Each shoulder is worked separately and then joined at the back of the neck to continue an almost-seamless construction to the bottom of the hem.
  • To create the kimono-style sleeves, a small number of sts are placed on hold and seamed before finishing the cuffs.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge. The Small needle should be 3 needle sizes smaller than the Large needle when gauge is met (i.e.: a US 5 if gauge is met on a US 8, a US 6 if gauge is met on a US 9).
  • Written instructions are provided for the entirety of the garment. There is no charting necessary.
