Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 471 Kohl Lace Pullover

Share Button

Here is this week’s Valley Yarns Show and Tell!

This simple sweater is created with just four rectangles! 471 Kohl Lace Pullover is knit in Valley Yarns Deerfield and since it is constructed of rectangles, you don’t have to worry about shaping with the lace. The garment is both cool and flattering.

We tried on the 35” size.

We were all really impressed with how soft the Deerfield is when paired with the lace stitch. It was warm without being too heavy. Most of us thought that this sweater was quite flattering – from the shape to the length, but a few of us would adjust the sleeves so that they aren’t as bell-like.

    I love that you show a sweater on many different body types so we as knitters have some sense of what that sweater will look like when worn…Very Helpful! Thanks

    I think it looks good on everybody, but I like the ones with the dark tank better

    It’s knit!

    Can anyone tell me, before I purchase this pattern, if it uses charts or written-out instructions. I cannot use charts, and am in the process of attempting to put into words a chart that is 115 lines long! I’d really hate to spend $5 and then find I couldn’t use the pattern.

  7. Marykate Says:

    Hi Karyl,

    The pattern is written and charted, but the repeat is super easy and could be memorized! If anyone has trouble reading charts, here’s a helpful tutorial from Tin Can Knits.

    Thx, Marykate! I’ve bought the pattern, read it, and am looking forward to knitting it. (I cannot do charts due to slight cataracts in my eyes.) Now, to knit! Again, thx!

    Hi! How much ease is recommended for this pattern? It looks like up to 4 inches negative ease, 1 inch positive? I’m trying to decide what size to pick in a kit. Thanks!
