If you’re new around here, you may not know how I celebrate Throwback Thursday! Every Thursday, I highlight a specific project I made awhile 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 very long time.
I started doing it because I want 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 watched them all ;)
This Week’s Project:
This week I am talking all about my Tegna sweater! This is a pattern by Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks. I think all knitters have heard about this sweater, but if you haven’t let me introduce you!
This is a bottom up sweater, worked in the round. It has delicate, but not too difficult, lace at the bottom, and decreases ever so slightly as you work up said lace. This gives the sweater a slight a-line shape, which I personally love, and believe is flattering on anyone.
You can choose the length of your sweater as well! You’ll notice that mine is quite cropped, which was intentional. I wanted to wear it with the exact outfit you see in the pictures, and I wanted it to hit just above the waistband. I LOVE the length for this outfit, but if I were to make another one, I would make it longer so that I can modestly wear it with jeans ;)
I used Loops and Thread’s Woolike yarn for this project, which is a light fingering acrylic/nylon blend yarn from Michaels. I really love this yarn!
Size Made, and Modifications:
I made the smallest size in the pattern, and it fits very well.
That being said, if you know some details about this pattern you may notice that I made a few modifications.
First, I altered the neckline. I chose to do a rib neckline, instead of the rolled neckline that is called for in the pattern.
I also shortened the sleeves. While I do like these sleeves, I will make them a bit longer for my second one!
Would I make this again?:
100% YES. In fact, I have plans to make another one in the near future! I absolutely loved knitting the lace on this sweater, and am looking forward to knitting it again :)
