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
