Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 462 Hearts of Oak Cardigan

We’re showing off the latest addition to our Stitch Red collection with 462 Hearts of Oak Cardigan.┬áThis set-in sleeve cardigan has a wide shawl collar that can be overlapped and pinned closed, or folded over to show off the lovely wrong side of the Hearts of Oak pattern stitch.

We tried on the 36″ size.

We really liked this comfortable cardigan. The collar was a big hit, though a couple of us would shorten the sleeves. This sweater looks great open, or closed with a shawl pin. We also love that a percentage of the profits from this pattern, Valley Yarns Northampton in red, and 452 Hearts of Oak Hat are donated to Stitch Red.

You can check out the pattern here.

Guest: Kirsten Hipsky, our Design Manager chats about our latest designs.

We’re working with Jimmy Beans Wool and their Stitch Red program. It’s a national campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease in women. We will be contributing a portion of our sales of Northampton in red and the dedicated patterns to The Heart Truth. Kirsten designed the Hearts of Oak Hat with a great stitch pattern she found in one of the Barbara Walker collection.

The Hearts of Oak Hat will be our next KAL!
