Polly Pullover

Spud & Chloe Pullover

I have achieved something that I never thought I would – I have knitted myself a jumper. Yep, I’m ready for Winter! Ali over at Domesticali recommended I try knitting the Spud & Chloe Polly Pullover. She assured me that it was easy & I’d be fine. She wasn’t wrong! I ordered my giant needles & lovely yarn and set about to making my jumper. I wasn’t really sure how I would get on, but it was really easy and grew really quickly.

The wool is gorgeous, soft and warm. It’s lovely to knit and the whole jumper grows really quickly. If you want to knit a jumper, this is definitely one you should try. It’s not cheap – I used just under 7 skeins of yarn and they cost £12.99 each. But this is something that will keep forever – as long as I’m careful how I wash it!

The pattern is really easy to follow and the whole thing was really great to knit. I only had to undo it once & that’s because I’d missed a stitch. If I can find a cheaper alternative to the wool from the pattern, I’d happily have another go at this jumper. It wouldn’t take long and looks great! Have a go – you won’t be sorry that you did! x

I have been wanting to knit myself a jumper for ages, but I’ve always been put off as thePolly Pullover patterns look difficult. A fellow knitter, Domesticali, recommended the Spud & Chloe Polly Pullover, as you knit it in the round. No problem. That I can do. So I equipped myself with all the lovely yarn & appropriate needles & set to work. (Huge thanks to everyone who bought me something to use with this pattern for my birthday!)

Casting on using the backwards loop cast on. Oh. What is that?! I had no idea. Hello Google! It came back straight away with this video from Knitting Help. They aren’t lying when they say it’s easy – it really is. I only started over the weekend but am making progress. I’ve been told it’ll grow quickly & an is an easy knit. I’ll let you know how I get on. Fingers crossed!
