Debbi has taken one of our longest running Valley Yarns and given us a fresh, but classic wardrobe piece that works with almost any style.

Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 466 Hyacinth Cardigan

This week in our Valley Yarns Show and Tell, we’re taking a look at 466 Hyacinth Cardigan. The Valley Yarns Hyacinth Cardigan is a reinvention of our ever-popular Oriel Lace Cardigan. This time it is knit in Stockbridge and has sleeves! This sweet cardigan is perfect for transitional seasons and overly air-conditioned spaces.

We tried on the 36″ size.

We all loved the stitch pattern, but some of us thought this would be better if it were a little longer. Katie suggested it would be adorable with a dress because of the length. Since this is a top-down project, you can adjust the length of the body and sleeves, and the placement of the lace. Some of us found the alpaca in the Stockbridge to be a little scratchy.

You can find the pattern here.

Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 419 Silverscape Cardigan

Hi Everyone,

Today’s Show and Tell is 419 Silverscape Cardigan. It features art nouveau lace sprays on the front, back and cuffs. The shape of the lace is built into the neckline, and a simple single crochet edge creates a clean line.

It is knit in Valley Yarns Stockbridge. Stockbridge is a lovely worsted weight blend of wool and alpaca.

We tried on the 36″ size.

“So sweet and flattering. I’d make the sleeves shorter, though.”

“I love the color of this sweater, but I didn’t think the flare at the bottom was very flattering.”

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

“This is a really comfortable cardigan to wear. I like the fitted sleeves, but would take off just a bit of the length of them.”

“I really love this sweater! I love the eyelet lace detail the color. I actually knit myself a sweater in this color of Stockbridge a few years ago. I think I might try a different yarn though because I’m pretty sensitive to alpaca and I could feel it in this sweater.”

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

“This cardigan is a nice length, and the detail at the shoulders is lovely. I would knit the size larger for myself, so that there was a bit more ease, but I would shorten the sleeves, which could be easily done in the simple stockinette.”

Here’s a shot of the back of the cardigan so you can check out the lace detail there as well.

Next week, we’ll look at the last garment featured in the fall catalog – 422 Rose Tweed Cardigan.

1. Blankie for lil E knit by nbrench – have fun playing with color in this baby blanket which is a downloadable free pattern on Ravlery.

2. Harvest Moon knit by plhigdon – grey cardigan with pockets, this would absolutely be my go-to sweater if it was in my wardrobe.

3. Liberty throw knit by gab-fab – so very striking in this color combination.

4. Blue Meanie knit by 17Q17 – love the simpler two-color version of Tubey with the addition of the pretty lace trim on the sleeves.

5. Autism Awareness Scarf knit by joilynn – love how she converted a Tunisian stitch pattern into a knitting patten.

6. Lena Warm crocheted by mng – since this shawl works up so fast, you could have it done in no time.
