Valley Yarns Show & Tell: 421 Pearl Street Cabled Pullover

Share Button

Hi Everyone,

In this week’s show and tell, we try on 421 Pearl Street Cabled Pullover. It is knit in super soft Valley Yarns Amherst. It’s knit in the round from the bottom-up with seamless, wide saddle shoulders and easy ribbon cables.

We tried on the 36″ size.

Bust: 37″
Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″

“This is one cuddly, warm sweater. I think I have slightly narrow shoulders, so the saddle shoulder helps accentuate them to make my figure less pear-shaped.”

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

“This was way too much sweater for me! It’s a gorgeous cable pattern in a super soft and warm yarn, but it made me look a lot bigger than I am. I would make this sweater as a gift for someone else, but not for myself.”

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

“I love cabled sweaters, but this one has a little too much cable action going on. But in a darker color and an inch off of the sleeves, this is a sweater I would put on when I want to feel cozy and warm.”

Bust: 39½
Waist: 32″
Hips: 43″

“Amherst is one of my favorite Valley Yarns because it’s so soft, but I don’t think the style of this sweater is very flattering on me. The cable makes me look bulkier than I would like to.”

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

“If you are going ice skating this winter, this is the sweater you’ll want to wear! The cables in this wool yarn make this a very insulated, cozy, garment. I would knit the 44″ size (in a darker color) and use it as a layering/outerwear sweater paired with jeans.”

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

“This sweater is very warm and cozy. It would be perfect for a crisp fall day. Its body-hugging but it smoothes over all of my problem areas. I really like the long sleeves, as they look just right on my long-ish arms.”

Next week, we’ll be featuring 416 Dylan Cardigan.

    Thanks for another educational round of show and tell. This one I’m going to queue, but even when I don’t I learn a LOT about sizing, shaping, ease and judging patterns. Thank you for the show and tell!

    Thank you for these posts.  I really love them because they give a realistic picture of how various figures would look in your lovely designs.  Much appreciated

    This is an interesting one. Many designs look very different on different body shapes but this one actually looks similar across all of them. Neat.
