Guys, I'm not sure why it's taken me 3 years to design a cardigan but I finally did it and I'm overjoyed with the results.

When designing this cardigan, I knew I wanted it to be simple yet special. I wanted something that wouldn't go out of "style". Something I could wear with anything at any time. And I believe I did just that!
This classic cardigan can easily be thrown over a dress for a night out or over a T for a cozy night in. It features unique ribbing and is overloaded with texture. It is worked from the top down and is seamless (whoop whoop!). Plus, thoughtful rows are added in the back so you have the perfect fit around your neck.
There are two separate patterns available; one for adults and one for minis (babies/kids). Each version offers instructions on how to make short, 3/4, or full length fitted sleeves, as well as, tips for elongating the body!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
YARN: Cotton Jeans by Lion Brand Yarn (Great substitutions include: I Love This Yarn, Coastal Cotton by Loops & Threads, Lofti DK by KnitCrate, Comfy Cotton by LBY, etc. Any heavier DK or lighter worsted weight yarn should work up beautifully!)

BABIES/KIDS: 6M - 350, 12M - 455, 18M - 520, 2Y - 610, 4Y - 695, 6Y - 730, 8Y - 875, 10Y - 1020 yds for full length sleeves
BEHIND THE NAME
This cardigan is named after a place very close to my heart. Point Sal in Guadalupe California.
It's where Kyle (my husband) and I both saw and touched the Pacific Ocean for the first time. It's where we saw wild seals for the first time. It's where our favorite local hike was. It holds so many dear memories and for some odd reason this magical place is all I could think about when I tried on the finished cardigan. (Probably because I miss it so much and I know I'd wear it all of the time there?!)
These testing troopers worked SO hard on this pattern, guys! They stitched and frogged and then stitched and frogged some more. This test taught me how to design a top down garment for ALL sizes and I'm indebted to them for that. They were so incredibly kind, patient, and understanding during the entire process and I'm so grateful for them. 🖤
