Valencia Blouse

Valencia Blouse is a relatively tight-fitting, light and funky blouse with ruffles over the left shoulder and ¾ sleeves. It is perfect for summer evenings and warm spring and autumn days.

The pattern comes in eight different sizes; from XXS to 3XL. It is knit in one piece top-down and in the round, which leaves very few ends to weave in. We love! It’s a relatively easy knit if you are a little more experienced than a beginner.

The pattern comes in two different versions; a striped version and a one-colour version. It starts with a fine stockinette neckline followed by either one colour or stripes and decorative ruffles over the left shoulder to give a romantic look. Raglan increases over the shoulders give you the perfect opportunity to adjust the length and the size to your preferences.

I hope you will enjoy your #valenciablouse, as much as I have enjoyed designing it!


The circumference sizing ranges between:
XXS - 64 cm
3XL - 128 cm


For the striped version of the blouse I have used hand dyed cashmere silk (400 m / 100 g) and kidsilk (420 / 50 g) from By Emra (

Her beautiful bases are not listed on Ravelry, so I have made alternative suggestions here.

For each stripe I have used two strings held together, and because the ruffles are two strings of silkmohair held together, make sure that both yarn A & B are very close in colour in order for the stripes to match.

In the single colour black version Drops Kid-Silk and Sandnes Alpakka Silk are used.

You will need between:
300 g Sandnes Alpakka Silk in XXS to 600 g in 3XL.
125 g Drops Kid-Silk in XXS to 275 g in 3XL.
