IWK Summer 2007 Oriel Lace Blouse Gallery

The Oriel Lace Blouse on Bertha and the Interweavers!

Just as with the Corset Pullover, Bertha and the Interweave gang once again all try on the same sweater for the greater good of knitting, to demonstrate how the sweater looks with various amounts of ease, both positive and negative.

As you can see, the same sweater looks very different on different women! We give general suggestions for customization below for your inspiration. Only you can choose how you want your sweaters to fit and which customizations will work best for you and your beautiful self!

  1. This pattern was from the Summer 2007 issue. It uses Alchemy Yarns Silken Straw in Moonstone. If you can’t download it at knittingdaily.com (for a fee), contact them and request it or buy the back issue.

  2. I made this blouse for my daughter-in-law in the recommended silk yarn.  But she requested a U neckline which turned out really well.  A beautiful garment!
