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!
The Point Sal Cardigan is a classic, circle yoke layer that can easily be thrown over any outfit for any occasion. It features unique ribbing, is overloaded with woven-like texture, and is entirely seamless! Plus, thoughtful rows are added in the back so you have the perfect fit around your neck.
As usual, the pattern offers easy to follow instructions with color coded sizes and diagrams to help you along the way!
The Point Sal Cardigan is worked from the top-down. You'll start by working the yoke and body in rows and then work the sleeves in continuous rounds.

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. 🖤
