Erell (Little) is a drop-shoulders boxy sweater which features a nice stitch that fades on the body.
The body is knitted from bottom to top: you start by knitting the bottom of the body in the round, then the front and back are knitted one by one back and forth. Shoulders are then joined by a three needles bind off, and the stitches from the sleeves are picked-up to knit them in the round from top to bottom.
Several other patterns from the Erell collection are available in my shop : an adult jumper, a shawl, a hat and a pair of socks.
