Spruce Point was a featured design both at my 2016 make. wear. love. west coast retreat, and at our partner store The Yarnover Truck’s “Camp Yarnover Truck” at Stitches West 2016. A great all-weather option, Spruce Point features a classic 3/4-sleeve, longer length, V-neck silhouette with updated Broken Rib trim. We worked this sample in Skacel CoBaSi Plus, a worsted-weight non-wool yarn great for sunny LA (or most anywhere) – but the design works equally well in a wool or wool blend.
I’m shown wearing an hourglass relaxed fit, but the design would work equally well in snugger fits. And while Spruce Point is shown with 3/4 sleeve and a longer sweater length, CustomFit allows you to choose your own sleeve and sweater lengths – so your Spruce Point will be perfect for you. This is an hourglass design with waist and bust shaping.
This sample was knit in Skacel’s HiKoo CoBaSi Plus, in the color “In the Navy”, at a gauge of 5 stitches to the inch. But CustomFit will create your pattern to the gauge you specify – and for that reason, it’s difficult to give any kind of yardage advice! To estimate how much yarn you’ll need, I strongly recommend the “Stashbot” app or pamphlet by Hannah Fettig.
