With a classic set-in sleeve construction, rich texture, and cables, Valley Yarns McIntosh offers a luxurious feel and an updated split neckline for a modern style. Each piece of this pullover is knit flat from the bottom up with a three-needle bind-off joining the shoulders and seams at the sides and sleeves. Valley Yarns Hampden blends alpaca, wool, and silk into a superb sweater yarn that’s soft, warm, and has a delicate sheen. Your cables and textures will pop in Hampden, elevating your finished McIntosh sweater to the top spot in your handmade wardrobe. Pair it with jeans for casual comfort or dress it up for the office, and know that you’ll have that perfect mix of comfortable and polished all day long. Cable and texture patterns are both charted and written out.
