Pleated Skirt

by Botany
January 1953
Botany Boucle
Light Fingering ?
8 stitches and 10 rows = 1 inch
in stockinette
US 2 - 2.75 mm
vintage sizes 10, 12, 14, 16 (30", 32", 34", 36")

This pamphlet includes patterns for a full knife-pleated skirt, a tailored bolero and a colorwork blouse.
The yarn requirements are given for skirt and bolero combined:
Size 10: 30 1-oz. skeins
Size 12: 34 1-oz. skeins
Size 14: 38 1-oz. skeins
Size 16: 42 1-oz. skeins

The yarn may be a wool/rayon blend. Despite its name, it appears to be more like a creped yarn than a true bouclé. It’s probably quite similar to Bernat Bouclé de Laine.
