Eye Candy: Look at the Puffs!

Posted by maryheatherb on
A woman stands on a path in the woods, with her back to the camera, looking down the path, her left hand in the back pocket of her dark jeans. She is wearing a handknit bulky sweater in a light peachy tan color with voluminous sleeves which have a cable running up the length of them. Her curly blonde hair peeks out of a cream cable-knit hat with a puffy fur pom-pom.

Inspired by my love of Anne of Green Gables, I've always had a fondness for puffed sleeves. Searching through recently completed projects, sweaters with voluminous puffed sleeves stood out to me as both cozy and distinctive.

I love the confident smiles and elegance shown here in the project pics from CrochetHighway's Cosmopolitan Sweater Design Sample 2, ddearbear's stalactite, and Musiqstr's Persephone Pullover.

MelissaLu's Chantilly Cardigan, SarahsYarns86's Oxford Cardigan, and PaulinaSmith's Pop Cardi Test are stand-out neutral cardigans; I love the rich textures and interesting details!

Clockwise from top left: litlaprjonabudin's Stapi, edujrc's Lawrenson Sweater, marielsarah's Anne's Puffed Sleeves, and ZadaHathaway's Oxford Jumper all suit their crafters perfectly and showcase a range of puffed sleeve styles.
