Amy Herzog is a wonderful guide through the land of sweater making. The sleeves are worth it! A few other sources of inspiration include fruityknitting.com. Andrea has a few episodes that really walk you through measuring yourself and adjusting a pattern. And if you're zaftig like me, you may want to check out Maggie Righetti's Knitting in Plain English/Sweater Design in Plain English because she talks through short row bust darts. Game. Changer.
BTW, pulli is such cute slang! May I ask where you live? I am in Saint Paul, Minnesota, US, and I plan to adopt that word immediately!
