The lovely women’s “blouses” from 19th century Denmark, called “Nattrøjer”, or nightshirts, were knitted of one color in knit/purl motifs. In this class, a small sweater will be knitted circularly compiling a variety of construction techniques: split bottom welts, overlapping welts at the join, the half gusset as part of the sleeve, “seam” stitches, transposing the pattern chart to change from circular to flat knitting, as well as the classic knit/purl pattern motif that was a part of so many of these garments.
