The RITA Blouse is a two-tone, simple raglan blouse with a pretty mini color gradient.

The short-sleeved model is knitted using the very beginner-friendly top-down-raglan technique.

First, stitches are cast on using a crochet hook on a circular needle. This method creates a beautiful and simple edge.

Then knit exclusively in the round and work increases during the raglan yoke.

You’ll separate the sleeves and body under the arms, then finish the body in the round.

The sleeve stitches are picked up again at the end and knitted in the round.

All hems are bound off as normal.

In addition to the pattern in the appendix, separate help charts for each size are available for the raglan yoke. There you can check and tick off your increases round by round.
