The solid yarn version just won the German Aslantrends competition!!!
This seamless garment is something in between a sweater and a poncho. The buttoned cuffs hold it together, and the whole thing moves with the movement of the arms like a pullover would.
Although the white gives the impression of first snow the beautiful Noro colors also remind you of spring. That is why I named it Promesas, this is Spanish and means promises.
The sweater is open and wide. When it is cold you can wear as much as you need beneath it. It should also fit for all sizes. But it is very easy to add segments if you find you want more space.

I do recommend not to differ too much from the yarn weight though, otherwise the short row construction no longer fits.
The coloring is completely done by short rows which is described in the pattern in detail. You don’t need to be familiar with short rows but I still would not recommend the pattern to those who have just begun knitting.
There are diagrams for understanding and step by step photos to keep control. Apart from that the pattern is written.
