This E-pattern is for a darling knitted blouse from the WWII era. This 1940s pattern features a ribbed blouse that buttons up the front, has short sleeves, and great color band accents! Why not make it up in red, white, and blue, like our wartime sisters would have done? Of course the color possibilites are endless... green, mustard, and orange would be a great vintage color way- as would burgandy, mauve, and white. So many options for this cute blouse!
This blouse pattern includes instructions for three vintage sizes, including 14, 16, and 18 which translates to a 32, 34, or 36 inch bust.

Materials required to make this blouse include:

Cynthia Knitting Worsted yarn for the following sizes:
Sizes 14 and 16 use 5 oxs. royal blue yarn, 3 ozs. of scarlet yarn, and 2 oz of white yarn.
Size 18 uses 6 ozs. of royal blue yarn, 4 ozs. of scarlet yarn, and 2 ozs. of white yarn.
One pair of Size 10 (5 3/4mm) knitting needles (Use modern size 9, or make a swatch to check gauge needed)
Bone crochet hook No. 4
Your gauge will be 4 stitches to the inch, with 6 rows to the inch.

The sample for this was made using different button amounts and spacing than called for in the original pattern
