Ella is a classic Henley tee with feminine details. It’s worked in a simple garter ridge stitch pattern and features cap sleeves, a front button placket and below the hip length. It’s worked seamlessly from the top-down. The set-in sleeves are shaped with short rows. If this is your first time working short rows or this type of sweater construction, don’t worry, everything’s explained in line-by-line directions with accompanying illustrations. A small project like this is a great way to get a feel for working top-down set-in sleeve sweaters, and to discover the many benefits of this method of construction! PDF pattern includes schematic with detailed measurements of finished sweater.

I read the pattern and it is a bit more complex than my comfort zone. I will have to consult my Knitting Guru to find out how to do a particular stitch. I am looking forward to learning, but I am a bit disappointed to not be able to just knit it without problems. :( It looks like such a lovely sweater I will persevere!
