Notes

Started with 152 stitches on 3,75 mm circular needles and made 10 rows of knitting. I wanted a non ribbed edge.
in the 11-th row I switched to 5 mm circular needles and made 5 more rows of plain knitting.
then in the 16th row I started increasing for sleeves.
size is for me, S. Hopefully :))

Made 8 increases with 2 plain rows of knitting between, for the 9th and 10th increase I made 3 rows of plain knitting between.
After the 10th increase I made 3 plain rows and then divided the yoke for sleeves.
3 more rows of plain knitting, then increasing every 9th stitch, 2 more rows of plain knitting and one final increase in every 8th stitch.
I have over 170 stitches for the body part, working with 5 mm circular bamboo needles.

this is the boring part now :)) plain knitting in the round.

Finished the blouse 3 days ago. Size is S, even M, and I wear XS … Oh well, next will fit me.
Sleeves worked with 3mm short circular, 56 stitches/sleeve. Worked about 11-12 rows then bind off.
I really love this project, it’s not thick, drapes well and warm. Perfect for spring moody weather.
