The blouse is worked from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke. The finished blouse is turned ‘inside out’, so WS of the stockinette stitch is facing outward. However, it is worked with the RS of the stockinette stitch facing outward, to make it easier to knit, and turned right side out at the end. For this reason the colour changes are made with the yarn held in front of the stitch, instead of to the back as you would normally do to avoid having visible strands of yarn on the outside of the finished blouse.
