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

great pattern

I followed the instructions but had a little difficulty connecting the front to the back. After that I was able to follow the directions exactly to make one of my first sweaters. The pattern is flexible, you can vary the length of body and sleeves, or even forego the sleeves.

I canceled this pattern- I did want to say that you have really nice patterns and yarns.

Simply beautiful

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.
