Here it is, my first finished pullover!! The kitting itself was actually quite easy. I didn’t want to get into too much shaping with my first pullover project, so I used a very simple pattern for a loose style one. I had to edit the pattern a lot to make it the correct size though. Something always crops up, right?!
I think it probably took me about the same amount of time to sew the pieces together as it did to knit the individual pieces. I was being very fastidious about lining everything up, so I attached and removed the stitches a thousand times I until I was happy with them. I learned a lot about putting all the pieces together and also about how to weave the loose ends of yarn properly. Knitting the neck was easiest.
I used Caron Simply Soft Yarn – Sticks and Stones to make it, I love the colour of that yarn. It softened up beautifully after a nice wash.
My dear husband tried it on as soon as I finished it. It fits him perfectly and he loves it!! The smile was so worthwhile that I can’t wait to get started on the next one. I am definitely packing this one for our yearly camping trip in September.
