Take a closer look!
I created Lucas Point as part of the design collection for the 2017 make. wear. love. west sweater retreat, out of yarn from our lovely vendor Indigodragonfly. It's a newer interpretation on my beloved (and now fairly old) design Caulfield. Lucas Point features the same 3/4-sleeve, open-front look as the original, but now sports a comfortable A-line silhouette and updated trims.
Even better? Thanks to the magic of CustomFit, you can make your own Lucas Point in either of CustomFit's constructions (set-in sleeve or drop shoulder), straight, a-line, or tapered silhouette, and any sleeve/sweater length combination you like.
When swatching, please work your swatch in the Slip Stitch Eyelet pattern used as the allover stitch of this design. Amy is shown wearing the cardigan in a women's average fit.

The sample is shown in the lovely Indigodragonfly CaribouBaa, in the colorway "Epiphyte Club". The 100% merino is soft and lovely to knit with, and the slightly-speckled nature of this colorway (and the similarly-dyed colorways that Kim has created) make a great match for the slip-stitch texture of this design.
Amy liked the CaribouBaa at a gauge of approximately 8 stitches and 11 rows to 1'' (2.5 cm); if you're using the same yarn, at the same gauge, you'll need approximately 4 (5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10) hanks of the CaribouBaa for a standard-size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ sweater.
For other yarns, CustomFit will give you a yardage estimate before you finalize a custom pattern, but you can also use Hannah Fettig's Stashbot app or pamphlet to estimate yarn requirements when purchasing yarn.
