DESCRIPTION

The Maya blouse is worked top down with a round yoke. With a round yoke, all increases for sleeves, back and front piece are worked evenly spread within a row.
The blouse is first worked back and forth in rows, then closed to the round, creating a deep straight neckline. With the subsequently knitted I-cord, the neckline can either be knotted casually or tied into a bow. The short cut blouse is a perfect fit for skirts or high-waist trousers. Due to the top-down-technique, the depth of the neckline, the overall length and the sleeve length can be easily adjusted.

Both the hem and sleeve hem are cast off with an I-cord finish. Due to the tight I-cord finishes, the blouse has a balloon shape fit at sleeves and hip.
The instruction contains a detailed model sketch with all necessary measurements in the appendix, as well as a blank model sketch for your notes and adjustments.

Details

SIZES / MEASUREMENTS

The model is 164 cm tall and wears size S with a bust measurement of 85 cm. You can find detailed measurements in the model sketch in appendix 1.
You can use the blank model sketch in appendix 2 for notes and conversions.

All details in this instruction mean sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (XXL)

Examples for size selection: Your bust measurement is 85 cm, which corresponds to size S. The finished Maya blouse in size S has a bust measurement of 96 cm, so that your personal extra width (positive ease) is 96 cm – 85 cm = 11 cm.
Your bust measurement is 98 cm, so you are exactly between sizes M and L. The bust measurement of the finished Maya blouse is 106 cm for size M and 115 cm for size L. This corresponds to an extra width of 8 cm for size M and 17 cm for size L. You have to decide whether you would like a wider or tighter fit and choose the size accordingly.

WOOL

AMOUNT OF YARN

When working with 4 threads of yarn for sizes S, L and XL, please either use the higher yarn consumption or wind the last ball of yarn into a 2 threaded-ball of yarn, then you can use the threads from the both sides.
If you knit with another yarn, for example 2 threads, use the lower wool consumption. For comparison with other wool qualities: weight of wool when knitting with 4 threads is 0,33 g/m per 1 m.
