For the fall catalog, Kirsten decided that a re-knit was in order for 280 Lyonesse Pullover. It is slightly different from the original version of the project. It is shorter and knit in a different color.
It is knit in Valley Yarns Northfield. Northfield is a beautiful DK weight blend of merino, baby alpaca, and silk. Its construction makes it great for cables, they really pop!
We tried on the 32″ size.
“So cute and flattering. I could make the body longer, but I think I like it at this cropped length.”
“I’m not exactly sure why I don’t like this sweater on me. It fits me well, and nice cable detail. But something about it I’m not connecting to. Maybe if it had full length sleeves.”
Height: 5’7 ½”
“While this pullover isn’t my style I do like the lovely cables. I think the cropped cut and the shorter sleeve length are flattering to my body, and would be flattering to many body types.”
“This sweater is pretty cute – I like the length and wear the sleeves hit, but I think the allover cable is a little too much for me.”
“I really like the feel of Northfield and the structure of this yarn makes the details of the cables shine. This sweater was cozy without being overly warm. For myself, I would knit the next size up – this size felt tight across the chest and arms.”
Next week, we’ll have another Show and Tell from the fall collection!
