The 1940’s Button through blouse is worked
in 4 ply throughout. To make the attractive
striped effect of this blouse, you use large
needles and two simple stitches. Moss stitch
is combined with an open work stocking
stitch, made by making extra stitches in one
row and dropping them in the next row.
You can knit either short sleeves as shown
in the image or long sleeves instructions
You will need : 7 oz (approx 200g) for the
short sleeve version and 8oz (approx 230g)
for the long.
A pair each of No. 10 (3.25mm) needles for
the ribbing and No. 6 (5mm) for the pattern.
TENSION: With No. 6 (5mm) needles 6.5 sts.

Measurements to fit: 38-40 inch Bust

The needles are old sizes so I have included a
conversion chart for reference to modern sizes.
