The Brewster Pullover has a very unusual top-down seamless set-in sleeve/shoulder construction that is practically fail-proof. The design also features playful geometric color-work motifs that are easy to memorize. Top-down construction allows for easy length adjustment for a personalized fit. The sweater grows outward from the center back panel, which is worked flat in rows. Parts are added to this back panel to eventually incorporate the whole shoulder section including the sleeve caps. Then, the sweater is worked circularly in rounds from the top of the sleeve caps to the hems. The pattern also includes links to helpful video tutorials throughout. If you're unsure you have the skills necessary to knit this pattern, the videos will help you along your way.
