Please note that Cypress Cove is available as a custom-gauge, custom-size pattern via my CustomFit custom pattern generator. Upon purchase, you’ll receive a credit for a custom version of Cypress Cove and instructions on how to create it.
Cypress Cove is a versatile, transitional open cardigan with a narrow neckline and fold-over garter stitch collar. The look is a bit like a tiny shawl collar, but no shaping is needed, keeping the sweater very simple to knit. A small amount of 1×1 ribbing trims the sleeve cuffs and hem – but this cardigan definitely lets your choice of yarn shine through.
I’ve worked it in a cozy 100% BFL wool with a beautiful sheen, but it would work equally well in many other materials too – from linens to cotton blends to a drapey silk blend. Shown with 3/4 sleeves and an average sweater length, CustomFit allows you to choose your own sleeve and hip lengths – as well as silhouette. (Cypress Cove can be made in an a-line, straight, tapered, or back-waist-shaping-only hourglass shape.) Since you make the choices, your Cypress Cove will be perfect for you.
Cypress Cove is available as a custom-gauge, custom-size pattern for the yarn and measurements of your choice via CustomFit. It’s shown here on Amy in an “hourglass average fit” with a back-waist-shaping-only hourglass silhouette. It’s also available in tapered, aline, and straight silhouettes, in a variety of fits.
Your own customized version of the Cypress Cove pattern will be written to your gauge, whatever it may be. This design will work well at any gauge.
I used The Knitting Boutique’s Mattawoman, in the color “Chocolate”, for this design. Mattawoman is a 100% Blue Faced Leicester yarn, but any wool, wool-silk, or wool-alpaca yarn will make a lovely version of this design.
Cypress Cove is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in sleeves.
