Tualatin is a classic cabled cardigan. It’s worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed for a stable and long-lasting layering piece. Drop shoulder construction helps avoid the fussy process of setting in a curved sleeve cap while keeping the overall look and feel of the garment more casual.

If you have little experience with seaming, Tualatin is a great way to work on your skills since all the seams are straight! Knitterly details like a hi-lo split hem and a front cable trim that travels around to meet at the back of the neck make Tualatin stand out from the crowd.
