A Bertha Blouse doesn’t sound very attractive – but it looks so easy to knit and wear!
This simple pattern comes from Vogue’s 4th Book of Knitting and Crochet (1936), and is suggested to be knit in white, with two green stripes.
If you were looking for a good place to start with using a vintage knitting pattern, this might be just the ticket!
To fit: 36 inch bust
Yarn: Fingering weight. A light fingering weight chenille was used in the original, but a cotton or linen yarn would be a good substitute.
