Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 416 Dylan Cardigan

Share Button

Hi Everyone,

This week we’re taking a look at 416 Dylan Cardigan. Our office is frequently visited by employees’ dogs, and Liz’s golden retriever Dylan (who makes a cameo in Liz’s picture!) loves making the rounds, putting a smile on everyone’s face. Just like Dylan, this top-down raglan sleeved cardigan is easy-going and quick to become your next best friend.

Knit in Valley Yarns Colrain, it is super comfortable, not at all itchy and has a slight sheen.

We tried on the 36″ size.

“Love how soft and comfy this sweater is. I could make the sleeves shorter, but I also like how they look cuffed.”

Grace
Height: 5’0″
Bust: 38″
Waist: 30″
Hips: 38″

“This was a really nice and comfortable cardigan. I would make it the next size up to make it roomy and more of a weekend sweater.”

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

“This has a fun striped texture. I’d take off a little length from the sweater and choose a different color, otherwise this is a sweater I could see wearing.”

Bust: 39½
Waist: 32″

“I’m a huge fan of cardigans and would probably wear them every day if I had enough to do so. I like the way the lines look on this cardigan. The sleeves are just a touch too long, though I do like my sleeves on the long side. I would knit this, but in a different color of Colrain, which reminds me, I have some Colrain in my stash!”

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

“I love the slight bit of sheen the Colrain yarn has. This is a great weekend cardigan and would be nice with jeans. I would make the arms a bit shorter for myself, but I would consider sticking with this size, maybe adding a bit of ease in the body, since I like to wear cardigans buttoned only at the top. “

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

“I LOVE this cardigan, and not just because its named after my dog. It is super comfortable to wear, even over just a tank top. It is form fitting but not so snug that you get self-conscious. And the design allows for easy modifications to fit a variety of bodies.”

Come back next week for another Show and Tell.

    I love these show and tell posts!  I didn’t really care for this sweater on the model, so I was surprised to see how great it looks on all your staff!  I think it looks cozy and body-hugging in a good way.  Thanks for sharing, ladies!
