Even though it looks complicated this very fine leaf patterned yoke is not hard to knit. The shape of the sweater is short and a bit spacious. It is worked top down and higher at the back neckline (after the edging) to make the sweater fit.

    Choice of size
    Sommer Ella has an intended positive ease of 5-12 cm [2-5 inches]. It is shown with approx. 8 cm [3 inches] of positive ease. Find your personal size by measuring yourself around the chest (or the largest part of the body).Then look at the measurements at page 1 (this is the finished measurements of the Tee).
    Positive ease is the difference between your bust circumference and the bust circumference of the Tee.
    Is your bust circumference e.g. 94 cm [37 inches], a size M will give you 12 cm [4¾ inches] of positive ease (106 cm – 94 cm = 12 cm) [41¾ inches – 37 inches = 4¾ inches]
    The length is measured at the center back, including the neckband.

    Sommer Ella is knitted top-down. After the neckband, short rows are worked to make the front neckline lower than the back. Then the yoke with lace pattern is worked, raglan increases are made and finally the sleeves and body are separated and worked one at a time.
