Amoroso in Spanish means “loving,” and you will love knitting this sassy little sweater that will give you all the love with all its coziness! Worked in bulky weight yarn, it’s a fast knit just perfect for those cold winter days! No jacket required while hanging out with friends or shopping. Pair it with jeans, cute boots, and sunglasses, and you’re ready for fun!

The Amoroso sweater is worked back and forth in four pieces (front, back and sleeves) bottom-up, and is then seamed together. After the back and front are joined, stitches are picked to create the turtle neck.
