Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 280 Lyonesse Pullover

Share Button

Hi Everyone,

For the fall catalog, Kirsten decided that a re-knit was in order for 280 Lyonesse Pullover. It is slightly different from the original version of the project. It is shorter and knit in a different color.

It is knit in Valley Yarns Northfield. Northfield is a beautiful DK weight blend of merino, baby alpaca, and silk. Its construction makes it great for cables, they really pop!

We tried on the 32″ size.

Kirsten
Height: 5’3″
Bust: 37″
Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″

“So cute and flattering. I could make the body longer, but I think I like it at this cropped length.”

Dena
Height: 5’4¾”
Bust: 35½”
Waist: 29½”
Hips: 40″

“I’m not exactly sure why I don’t like this sweater on me. It fits me well, and nice cable detail. But something about it I’m not connecting to. Maybe if it had full length sleeves.”

Liz
Height: 5’7 ½”
Bust: 36¾”
Waist: 34¾”
Hips: 38½”

“While this pullover isn’t my style I do like the lovely cables. I think the cropped cut and the shorter sleeve length are flattering to my body, and would be flattering to many body types.”

Mary
Height: 5’4″
Bust: 39½
Waist: 32″
Hips: 43″

“This sweater is pretty cute – I like the length and wear the sleeves hit, but I think the allover cable is a little too much for me.”

Tina
Height: 5’2″
Bust: 40″
Waist: 33½”
Hips: 43″

“I really like the feel of Northfield and the structure of this yarn makes the details of the cables shine. This sweater was cozy without being overly warm. For myself, I would knit the next size up – this size felt tight across the chest and arms.”

Next week, we’ll have another Show and Tell from the fall collection!
