Take a closer look!
Clearview is a versatile, classic cardigan with an A-line shape, clean texture, and buttons on the top of the garment only. It is worked in pieces from the bottom up, and is shown in a set-in sleeve construction with 3/4 sleeves and a "long" sweater length. It features a flattering scoop neckline, broken 1x1 rib trim, and an easy-to-work Windowpane knit/purl texture.
One note on the stitch patterning: There are 8 stitches in each repeat, which is fairly high - so I have not restricted CustomFit's stitch counts to be exact multiples. This means you'll get a sweater that fits great, but you may have to work partial stitch repeats on the sides of your pieces.
In addition to the options shown here, you can make Clearview in a drop-shoulder construction, and/or with other silhouettes, lengths, and fits. All in your own gauge and yarn.

I used Solitude Wool's lovely Coopworth sport yarn for this sample. Coopworth is a Longwool breed that's a cross between Romney and Border Leicester. The wool has a beautiful, fuzzy sheen and almost an ethereal quality to the stitches. I found it light, warm, and just beautiful in the knit-purl textures of Clearview. I enthusiastically recommend it for this design. I can recommend Solitude Wool, as a company, even more enthusiastically: Sue and Gretchen are passionate about breed-specific yarns and fibers that support small farms and show off the best characteristics of each breed. Find out more about them at the Solitude Wool website.
The sample is shown in the color "Bora Bora", and while of course your own individual yardage may vary, if you're using the Coopworth you'll need approximately 4 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) hanks for a standard size 32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64)’’ bust.
For other yarns, CustomFit will give you a yardage estimate before your finalize a custom pattern, but you can also use Hannah Fettig's Stashbot app or pamphlet to estimate yarn requirements when purchasing yarn.
