Originally published in the 1920s. Pattern calls for 600 yards of a dk-weight wool or wool-blend MC (rose) and 90 yards of a fingering-weight angora or angora-wool blend CC (pink). Needle size is slightly larger than normal for the yarn weight specified in order to create a drapey, loosely knit fabric. Although this garment is called a “negligee”, a word normally associated with a robe, housecoat, or dressing gown, we the Retro Knits editors see this project as an updated oversized, loosely-knit sweater with drop shoulders and no sleeve seams! Body in this pattern is lengthened several inches from the original -- remember, most women were shorter in the 1920s.
