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

2023-08-14: Right back section in row 5, after CO 30sts, it should read ''put the LEFT BACK stitches back on the needles''.
I canceled this pattern- I did want to say that you have really nice patterns and yarns.
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.
