The Alma pullover is knitted seamlessly top-down starting at the neckband. The neckband is knitted in 1x1 ribbing and folded double in the end. The sleeves and body are separated at the underarm and knitted separately. The back is shaped with short-rows to give it a bit more length and to improve the fit.

The Alma pullover is designed for Sandnes Garn Kos which is an airy and light yarn. You can substitute it for any bulky weight yarn, but note that changing the yarn might change the drape of the pullover.

All techniques are explained in the pattern. The pattern is very beginner friendly and suitable as a first sweater project.
