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.
