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!

Pattern includes schematic with detailed measurements of finished sweater.

Designed to fit 18" (46cm) dolls with a chest circumference of approx. 11" (28cm), such as American Girl, Australian Girl, Gotz and similar dolls.

The difficulty level of this pattern is: Intermediate - requires a knowledge of basic knitting skills, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches, working with DPNs or preferred method for circular knitting, and following directions for short rows.


What you will need in order to knit this pattern:

I'm working on the sweater as we speak! Instructions are great to follow; I am a new knitter; so the pattern must be user friendly or I would not be almost through knitting it. Thanks.
