First Piece

Row 2: CH 3, skip 1 stitch, 3DC Shell, *skip 2 stitches, 3DC Shell *repeat; skip 1 stitch and DC in the last stitch. Skip one stitch at the beginning and at the end of the row. Skip two stitches inside the row.

Now I’m going to make 14 rows in the same way.

Row 2: CH 3, 3DC Shell in the chain space, *CH, 3DC Shell in the chain space * repeat; DC in the last stitch. Turn your work.
Rows 3-6: repeat Rows 1-2
Make the other strap in the same way.
Make second piece.

FRONT = BACK

Use your yarn and sew the two straps together at the top.
Sew the front and back pieces with needle and yarn.

Edges – neck
Connect the yarn to the first shell on the front piece. Make chain and one single crochet stitch in the next two stitches. Then, make two chains, SC in the next stitch, skip the chain from the previous row. Repeat this process to the end row (*SC 2, CH 2, SC, skip CH *repeat).
Then, make stitches to the strap inner edging. *SC 3, CH 2 *repeat

Edges – armhole: *SC 3, CH 2 *repeat
Edges – bottom of the blouse: *SC 3, CH 2 *repeat

    Thank you for this pattern. I have tired so many times to learn how to make my own tops but found the patterns/instructions of others didn’t match the gauge / tension . This pattern was designed with me and my yarn in mind. Thanks again!!!
