Sunset Drive 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 Sunset Drive and instructions on how to create it.
Sunset Drive was created for the inaugural make. wear. love. west coast retreat. For this first make. wear. love. west collection, I let the surroundings inspire me, and created three designs that pair perfectly with the central California coast. Sunset Drive is a simple crew-neck pullover at its heart, but uses large panels of a tiny arrowhead lace to keep things breezy. It’s light, comfortable, and has a lovely relaxed feel since even in an hourglass silhouette, the waist shaping is located on the back only.
One note on gauge: CustomFit will assume that your Stockinette and lace gauges are the same, and generate the pattern in a single gauge throughout. I recommend you swatch in Stockinette, but it’s probably worth making a quick swatch in the lace pattern as well, to make sure you’re not too far off.
Sunset Drive 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 a straight silhouette and other fits as well.
Your own customized version of the Sunset Drive pattern will be written to your gauge, whatever it may be. I strongly recommend a fingering-weight yarn for this pullover, to keep the feel of the original.
I used Anzula Squishy, in the color “Minty Unicorn” – which is exclusive to our vendor The Yarnover Truck.
Squishy really lives up to its name, and I love it for this design. 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, you’ll need approximately 3 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) hanks.
Sunset Drive is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in sleeves.
