Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy is a nice cotton blend yarn. Recommended needle is 3.5mm. I used 6 and half balls for this project. Three different size of needles were used 3.5, 3.25 and 3mm.

This blouse is knitted bottom up. Front and back piece knitted separately using invisible cast on. Same cast-on method used for the two sleeves. And then the lace pattern is knitted downward the cast on. This is a pattern from Let's Knit coulture 12. I have really spent some time to figure out the whole pattern especially at the armhole part which the grafting/kitchener stitch and invisible seaming are required. It is definitely a good challenge for me to test how neat my seaming skill is after these years of knitting. I enjoyed this project very much!
