Augustins no 9 (ENG)
Augustins no. 9 is a modified adult’s version of the old children’s pattern Birkebluse, which also was designed by Augustins. Within this version, you may recognise the neckline hem with its bow, the wide shaping of the body and how the garment is knitted longer in the back. As new features, a picot edging has been added to the neckline and the sleeves have gotten a more puffy fit.

Positive ease : This blouse has a wide positive ease, beginning from the middle of the yoke and downwards. The positive ease is at 20-30 cm, depending on your bust circumference - this is to secure the wide and airy fit, which is characteristic for the design.

Work : When the neckline hem, shoulders and parts of the yoke are being shaped, the blouse is knitted top-down and back and forth in Stockinette Stitch. At the middle of the yoke, increases are made to give the blouse a wide fit. From that point onwards, the blouse is knitted in the round in Stockinette Stitch. At the bottom of the body, German Short Rows are made to make the blouse longer in the back. The sleeves have a puffy fit, and have a finishing folded hem, just as the body has.
