Please note that Inlet 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 Inlet and instructions on how to create it.
It doesn’t get a whole lot more classic than a crew-neck cardigan. Inlet, part of my “CustomFit Basics” line, features a perfect neckline for layering, 3/4-sleeves (by default), and showcases some of your most stunning buttons. Like all of the Basics line, it’s designed to look great in most any yarn, and works with a wide variety of silhouettes and fits.
Inlet’s edges are trimmed in twisted 1×1 ribbing for a slightly different look; the sleeve and sweater lengths, as well as the silhouette and fit, are all changeable as you customize the design.
Inlet 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 an hourglass silhouette, but is available with all other silhouettes and fits as well.
Your own customized version of the Inlet pattern will be written to your gauge, whatever it may be. This design looks great in any yarn.
This sample was knit in Harrisville Designs Highland, an utterly fantastic 100% virgin wool spun locally in New Hampshire. It’s super-durable, comes in about a billion colors, and is one of my all-time favorite sweater yarns as it just keeps getting better and better with age.
I used the color “oatmeal”, at a gauge of roughly 4.5 stitches per inch. At that gauge, you’ll need approximately 3 (4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) hanks of Highland to make a standard-size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ / 76 (81.5, 86.5, 91.5, 96.5, 101.5, 106.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5) cm sweater.
Inlet is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in sleeves.
