This sweater is a love letter to New Mexico, in knitted form.
The idea for this cardigan came to me after a day spent in Taos. The yarn and buttons, which were purchased in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, were chosen because bright yellow and turquoise remind me of this special place. The pictures were taken on a back road near Dixon, New Mexico, and near downtown Santa Fe.
Taos is a top-down cardigan with an eyelet and garter stitch yoke, thick bands of ribbing along the bottom and cuffs, and three-quarter length sleeves.
