The Harbor Island Cardigan is relaxed, friendly, and warm – just the ticket for chilly nights in front of a fire or for a walk along the coastline. I designed it for my fall 2014 make. wear. love. sweater retreat, out of vendor Indigodragonfly’s Sad Lester DK yarn. It’s got loads of classic knitterly detail in a deep V neck, generous length, and gansey stitch patterning along the hem; chunky 4×4 ribbing at the top and bottom of the sweater add a modern touch.
Please note that the Harbor Island Cardigan 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 Harbor Island and instructions on how to create it.
Lauren added extra length to her sleeves to allow for extra snuggle-ability and fold-over cuffs. To achieve extra long sleeves yourself, add length with the “customize fit specifics” screen. Harbor Island will look wonderful in any fit, but is shown in a set-in sleeve ‘relaxed’ fit.
Harbor Island is available as a custom-gauge, custom-size pattern for the yarn and measurements of your choice via CustomFit. It’s shown here on Lauren with set-in sleeves and in an “hourglass relaxed fit” with an hourglass silhouette, but is available with a straight silhouette and other fits as well. It’s also available in CustomFit’s modified drop shoulder construction.
Your own customized version of the Harbor Island pattern will be written to your gauge, whatever it may be. I recommend using a DK-weight or lighter for this design, to preserve the look of the stitch patterning.
I used Indigodragonfly Sad Lester DK, in the color “The New Black”, for this sample.
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.
Harbor Island is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in or modified drop shoulder.
