Rosa is a generous fitting pullover featuring a simple ribbed pattern down the front with a scoop neck and ribbed sleeves for a snug fit. This idea first came to me when I seen the beautiful skeins of yarn. I wanted a design that would really show off my true style but was also minimal enough to allow the beauty of the yarn to shine thorugh. - Andrea

2021-09-28: correction to the Right Back section
The styling of this pullover is modern and uncluttered, a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.
I really like this pattern. The construction of the shoulders/neck is really nice, and it is a fun knit. The neckline construction is tricky, but after that, it is smooth sailing.
Nice pattern. Mistake near the beginning.
Nice pattern, but crucial errors in instruction at beginning. Both, for right back and joining front pieces. Corrected in my ravelry-project
I,ve not yet started the project . But it look great!
