Yarn Kit - Polina Pullover by Teti Lutsak

Availability : In stock

Under the name of Teti's Knit Garden, Teti is known for her nature inspired, almost etheric looking, romantic and timeless style. The Polina Pullover is in Teti's own words, her humble love letter to Polina Raiko, an artist sharing the same origin and home country as Teti – Ukraine.

Polina Raiko (1928 – 2004) was a self-taught painter recognised for her naive style. Everything in her house — walls, ceilings, doors, and fence — Polina covered in enamel-painted drawings of fantastic birds and flowers, Christian iconography, and the her own interpretations of dreams and life events. Unfortunately most of her work is lost due to the flooding of the house after the destruction of Kakhovka dam in June 2023. Sadly, the war keeps destroying the cultural heritage of Ukraine.

The pullover is knit top-down in the round with a large botanical colourwork pattern on the yoke and a smaller one on the body and sleeves. The pattern also comes with three neck options: ruffled mock, double folded and a regular crew neck.

Sizes 1-6 with a finished bust circumference of ca. 95 (111, 127) (143, 158, 174)cm / 38 (44.25, 50.75) (57, 63.25, 69.75)” including at least 10-15cm / 4-6” of positive ease.

For this beautiful design we've chosen an equally beautiful yarn, Hillesvåg Sølje in Norwegian Peltwool has all the superb qualities you wish for when doing colourwork, and offers a unique colour range to properly pay tribute to such a bold design.

We've done the math for you, so according to your size the Polina Pullover Yarn Kit contains all the yarn you need to make your very own sweater, and it can be bought with or without the pattern.
In addition you'll need circular needles size 3mm and 3.5mm / US2.5 and US4, in 80-100cm / 32-40” length, and preferred needles in same sizes for smaller circumferences, spare cables or scrap yarn to keep sts on hold, a few stitch markers and a darning needle for weaving in your ends.
