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.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
Height: 5’7 ½”
“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.
