Throwback Thursday: Michelle Cardigan

Throwback Thursday:

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 Michelle Cardigan by Lauren of Twenty Four Threads! I had the pleasure of testing this crocheted cardigan earlier this year...and it is still one of my favorite cardigan! This stitch is one of my absolute favorites, and I was so so excited to be able to make a full garment using it. Isn’t it just beautiful? The construction is so simple as well. I was nervous at first because it is seamed, but it was SO simple. Nothing to be nervous about! Even with the sleeves ;)

I made the XS/1, but don’t worry...she has so many sizes in the pattern that all look equally beautiful.

The yarn:

For this cardigan, I used Bernat Baby Sport in Gray. I actually used almost exactly one FULL ball...I just had the tiniest little ball left. It was pretty hilarious actually, because I didn’t realize I was that low until I had finished the cardigan. I was very grateful to have won yarn chicken...unknowingly ;)

Would I make this project again?

Yes! Now that it is chilly again, I have been LOVING wearing all my sweaters, cardigans, and sweatshirts. While I don’t know when I will make a second...I do plan to on some point. I would honestly love to just make another, even if it isn’t for me. I just loved the process so much!

I love remembering little memories that were made while I was making an item. This cardigan, for example, was worked on quite a bit during the naptime of some little boys I was babysitting earlier this year. So sweet!
