Work : The blouse is knitted in the round in Stockinette Stitch, from the top and downwards. The first part of yoke is knitted in Twisted rib stitch and is shaped by using the technique German Short Rows. Following, is a laced ruffle with picot edging which completes the detailed part of the yoke. To give the blouse its airy and draped effect, double increases are then made at the upper part of the yoke. The remaining part of yoke, as well as body, is then worked in the round until reaching the bottom edge, where a finishing i-cord is knitted. The puffy sleeves are shaped by rounds of increasing and decreasing and is finished with the same laced pattern and picot edge as seen on the ruffle at the yoke section.
