Point Pinos Cardigan by Amy Herzog

I created Point Pinos as part of the 2017 make. wear. love. west sweater retreat collection, out of the exquisite Shibui Yarns carried by our vendor Monarch Knitting. It's a sophisticated take on the kinds of cardigans I personally love the most - open styles that can be closed with my favorite Jul Closure of the day. With long sleeves, simple rolled and 1x1 ribbed edges, and subtle waist shaping on the back of the garment only, it's as flattering as it is comfortable. Amy is shown wearing an hourglass average fit.

One note on the materials used to make this design: I used Shibui Twig and Cima held together; the utter lack of memory in these fibers, combined with their weight, make rolled edges practical. If you're knitting Point Pinos in a springy wool, please consider substituting a small ribbed or garter edge.

The back neckline is ruched in two places to make for a more comfortable sweater; a quick photo tutorial can be found here.
