Hello! Our last Valley Yarns Show and Tell for Spring is 450 Purlless Pullover. It is knit in Valley Yarns Goshen. A most unusual and fun way to make a one-piece, seamless pullover without any purling: nalgar sleeves (raglan spelled backwards)! This construction method makes built-in sleeves that get longer as they get wider, so it’s great for warm weather, shorter-sleeved garments. Worked in the round from the bottom up, it also features a cute garter stitch yoke that highlights the construction and avoids purling.
We tried on the 36″ size.
I loved knitting this tee, and it’s really nice to wear, too! Probably not over another t-shirt, though.
This tee was too small. I’d need to go the next side up. The sleeve length is great but I might make it a little longer. I’d use a different color too. The white was too light against my fair skin. A darker color would make a great warm weather tee.
This sweater felt great against my skin. The combination of the softness of the Goshen and the relaxed fit would make this the perfect weekend sweater to pair with my favorite jeans or comfortable skirt.
This is a comfortable pullover and I’m a huge fan of Goshen. I think I’d like to make this a lot longer. Almost as long as the tank I have underneath it. I’d also knit it in a different color. I look better in darker colors.
Height: 5’7 ½”
Love, love, love this tee! Goshen feels silky and cool against the skin so its great for the warmer months. I think the sleeve detail is a simple but very interesting touch. And the delicate detailing on the v-neck is really lovely too. Plus, no purls! A home run in my opinion. This size seems to be a pretty good fit for me so I wouldn’t change a thing.
That’s it for the Valley Yarns Show and Tell for Spring. What was your favorite sweater?
