Inlet (a crew-neck cardigan) by Amy Herzog
It doesn't get a whole lot more classic than a crew-neck cardigan. This one features a perfect neckline for layering, 3/4-sleeves, and showcases some of your most stunning buttons. All edges are trimmed in twisted 1x1 ribbing. Amy is wearing this sweater in an average fit, but it looks great in a relaxed fit too. (We recommend choosing a "close" fit with cardigans if you're going to wear them over an extremely thin layer like a cami.)
Inlet (a crew-neck cardigan) is an hourglass design, so your final pattern will have waist and bust shaping. You can only use complete measurement sets to create this pattern.
This sample was knit in Harrisville Designs Highland, an utterly fantastic 100% virgin wool spun locally in New Hampshire. It wears like a dream, comes in about a billion colors, and is one of Amy's all-time favorite sweater yarns as it just keeps getting better and better with age.
I used the color "oatmeal", at a gauge of roughly 4.5 stitches per inch.
