Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 467 French Vine Pullover

In our final Valley Yarns Show and Tell from the collection in the Valley Yarns catalog, we have 467 French Vine Pullover. The simple shape of the bottom-up Valley Yarns French Vine Pullover lets you focus on the old French lace pattern on the bodice. The ribbed sleeves and saddle shoulders are both comfortable and charming.

It is knit in Valley Yarns Valley Superwash, so it’s easy to care for and it is incredibly soft.

We tried on the 36″ size.

A lot of us found the fit of the lace on the body very flattering and it made the body of the sweater fit well. Some of us would have preferred not having the ribbing on the sleeves, feeling it added a bit of bulk. We all agreed that Valley Superwash is an incredibly soft yarn.

You can check out the pattern here.

We’ll have another round of Valley Yarns Show and Tells with our next catalog. We hope they’ve been helpful for you. I also want to thank our awesome staff for sharing their measurements!

It’s been a long time since Valley Yarns Valley Superwash was Steve’s Deal of the Day. Through Sunday, March 18, Valley Superwash is on sale for $3.99/ball, regularly $5.49. (Use Promo Code FBSUPERWA2.)

Soft and machine washable, this is just the right yarn for baby and toddler garments. I’ve scoped out Ravelry to highlight a few cute projects knit with this yarn.
