Lacy Afternoon Tea Knitted Blouse Pattern

Regular price $6.50 $0.00

For Afternoon Tea, Karen E. Hooten puts together a little of this and a little of that. She chose an eyelet pattern to mimic broderie anglaise and to highlight where the sewn seams would have been or to allow ribbon to be inserted. She used Barbara Walker's Corona pattern (A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns; Pittsville, Wisconsin: Schoolhouse Press, 1998) for the collar and framing the small swell of the bust and her English Mesh Lace (A Treasury of Knitting Patterns; Pittsville, Wisconsin: Schoolhouse Press, 1998) in a panel bordered by eyelets run up the front and down the back of the blouse. The Twisted Rib pattern mimics pin tucks, and the Deep Diamond pattern is similar to the lengths of knitted, crochet, or machine laces chosen as inserts or trims for a blouse. All are framed with simple stockinette-stitch panels, which highlight the modest lace patterns.
