If you’re new around here, you may not know how I celebrate Throwback Thursday! Every Thursday, I highlight a specific project I made a while ago. It might be as recent as a couple months, or as old as a few years. It is simply a project you’ve never seen from me, or at least haven’t seen in a long time. I started doing it because I wanted to have a good reason to share my older projects with you, since I just started my YouTube channel this past May. I hope you keep reading about this week’s project, and check out the YouTube video! I also have a playlist for all my Throwback Thursday Episodes on my channel, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already ;)
This week’s project:
This week’s project is the Easy Eyelet Yoke Sweater by Chantal of Knitatude! You have heard me talk about Chantal a lot. I have test knit for her quite a few times, and I just adore her patterns. They’re incredibly easy to follow, and always yield a beautiful result.
This sweater is SO easy. Seriously. If you have never ever knit a sweater before, I suggest knitting this one. It has a circular yoke, and only a few increase rounds. The increases are made by creating yarn over instead of kfbs or m1s, which means it is a bit more suitable for an absolute beginner in my opinion...because chances are they have already done a yarn over before, even if it wasn’t intentional!
Chantal also has another sweater that I would recommend for a beginner, the Stockinette Beginner Raglan Lite. It is a top down raglan! I suggest checking it out ;)
My sweater is the size XS, and I test knit this for Chantal awhile back! I didn’t make any modifications, and it is kind of a tunic on me. I love it! I do typically shorten the torso length of Chantal’s sweater patterns, but I didn’t for this one. I think it suits the design well!
I used Cascade Pacific worsted for this sweater, and I just love this yarn! It is soft and warm, yet breathable. The perfect combination!
Would I make this project again?
Absolutely! I actually really want to make a second one, but use a *slightly* heavier worsted weight yarn, and make it shorter. I want it to fit me how Chantal’s fits her. It is perfect!
That being said...I think the next sweater I want to make from Knitatude is the Syngonium! I just have to find the TIME.
Until next time,
