Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 439 Fleur de Sel Cardigan

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Hi Everyone,

This week’s show and tell has us taking a look at 439 Fleur de Sel Cardigan. Worked side-to-side this easy crocheted lace cardigan has wide overlapping front panels with a flattering square neckline. The lace pattern is just one row so its easy to memorize, and the mostly double crochet sleeves keep the project moving quickly.

Worked in Valley Yarns Northfield, this cardigan is warm, even with the airy lace pattern.

We tried on the 36.”

Kirsten
Height: 5’3″
Bust: 37″
Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″

“Super cute and pretty sweater, but I think I’d make the neckline a little smaller to keep it on my shoulders better.”

Dena
Height: 5’4¾”
Bust: 35½”
Waist: 29½”
Hips: 40″

“I’m always looking for more crocheted sweaters that are attractive. And this is definitely getting added to my queue. The open square neckline is awesome. And you can adjust the buttons to get more of a custom fit where it matters.”

Mary
Height: 5’4″
Bust: 39½
Waist: 32″
Hips: 43″

“I didn’t think I would like the way this looked on me when we were shooting it for the catalog, but it doesn’t look too bad. I don’t know if the style of the closure really suits my shape, but the Nortfield felt fantastic.”

Tina
Height: 5’2″
Bust: 40″
Waist: 33½”
Hips: 43″

“It’s cute in theory, but I’m not a fan of this sweater.”

Liz
Height: 5’7 ½”
Bust: 36¾”
Waist: 34¾”
Hips: 38½”

“I’d definitely need a larger size so that the cardigan closes properly. I really like the stitch of this sweater and the square neckline, which would showcase a necklace beautifully. Again, I would change the sleeve length so that the sleeves didn’t fall at my widest point.”

Next week we have our final Show and Tell of the year!

Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 280 Lyonesse Pullover

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Hi Everyone,

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.

Kirsten
Height: 5’3″
Bust: 37″
Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″

“So cute and flattering. I could make the body longer, but I think I like it at this cropped length.”

Dena
Height: 5’4¾”
Bust: 35½”
Waist: 29½”
Hips: 40″

“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.”

Liz
Height: 5’7 ½”
Bust: 36¾”
Waist: 34¾”
Hips: 38½”

“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.”

Mary
Height: 5’4″
Bust: 39½
Waist: 32″
Hips: 43″

“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.”

Tina
Height: 5’2″
Bust: 40″
Waist: 33½”
Hips: 43″

“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!
