Valine is an essential amino acid needed in the diet in order for the body to build proteins. The Valine Pullover from Lyrical Knits is designed to serve as essential to the wardrobe with its clean lines, set-in ¾ sleeves, and a not-too-deep V-neck. There are two lace-inset options included in the pattern (your choice of a leaf motif or a mesh lace diamond motif). Worked from the shoulders-down, the set-in sleeves are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker (no seaming!). Make it in a basic sock yarn for an everyday, go-to sweater, or jazz it up with a special luxury-fiber yarn. Either way, you’re sure to look wonderful with a custom fit.
