Ornata Blouse Kit
To make navigating our website simpler, we are offering handy kits for this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this blouse, along with a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
The Ornata Blouse is designed by one of our pals Teti, of Teti’s Knit Garden. Please be aware that this kit does not include the pattern as it is available directly from Teti herself. You’ll be able to pick one up from her website, Ravelry, or Etsy.

“Ornata,” in Latin, means “covered with ornaments” and we think the name suits this design perfectly! Teti, the talented designer behind this pattern, was very much inspired by traditional Ukrainian embroidered blouses, in which most of the embroidery is done on the sleeves. It might not be an everyday garment, but definitely a special one! The blouse has a relaxed, slightly oversized fit with gorgeous, exaggerated wide sleeves. Both body and sleeves are worked top down in the round and gathered at the hem/cuffs. There is also an option to finish the body with a folded hem with picots.
