Bella is knit from the top down and features set in sleeves that are knit simultaneously with the upper body.
Guess what?!No Short-Rows!

It is a really quickly knitted up sweater that is figure flattering!
The neckline and the bottom of the sweater are adorned with one of my favorite stitch patterns, a sideways braid, an Estonian or also called Vikkel Braid. It is actually quite simple to knit and looks stunning!
Note: There are several videos (video1, video2) and tutorials available on line how to knit this easy sideways braid stitch.
