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. While it’s shown here with set-in 3/4 sleeves, an average length, and half-hourglass silhouette, CustomFit allows you to make the design your own. You can choose from any of CustomFit’s sleeve constructions, sleeve lengths, fits, torso silhouettes, and sweater lengths. 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 and set-in sleeves. It’s also available in other constructions, silhouettes, and 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.
For other yarns, CustomFit will give you a yardage estimate before you finalize a custom pattern, but you can also use Hannah Fettig’s Stashbot app or pamphlet to estimate yarn requirements when purchasing yarn.
Cypress Cove is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in or modified drop shoulder sleeves.
