Spud & Chloe Top Down Sweater
Has anybody bought (and used) the Polly Pullover pattern from Spud & Chloe???

http://www.nobleknits.com/spud-and-c...eid=f6a60b614d

It says that it's super easy for beginners. I've never done a top down sweater before, so I'd want something easy.

Let me know what you think.
THANKS

That appears to be about as easy as it can get. Top downs are easy in general.

This was my first sweater.

The one you have looks great, but here's so e more to check out. The ones I have all seem well written.

Thanks Jan!!

I'm hoping to find a free pattern that I can try. I did a ravelry search under "top down raglan pullover" under "free" and "knitting" but I didn't see any that looked like the Spud & Chloe one.

Will keep searching! AND thanks for your info!

This one is similar. Just knit the body straight or with waist decreases instead of ribbing.

That neckline doesn't seem to be as popular.

I am a relatively new knitter, and that looks like something I would tackle! Right now I am knitting a small experimental baby sweater, just to see how it goes, and it's going well. So you should try this!

This one isn't free, but it's my favourite simple top-down raglan sweater to knit. I'm currently working on my second one. Easy instructions & it fits perfectly!
