Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 466 Hyacinth Cardigan

Share Button

This week in our Valley Yarns Show and Tell, we’re taking a look at 466 Hyacinth Cardigan.┬áThe 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.

    I do appreciate showing the model on different sized real people. Thanks to the women who posed for these pictures, and I love the cardigan.

    I am knitting this right now-I will pay attention to the length and do another repeat of the lace if needed!  Very nice pattern!

    Wow, this is really great – real women & their measurements so I can visualize how the sweater might look on me! Thank you so much! I’m going to give it a try…
