You will need:
Hook Size 3,5 mm
Cotton Yarn 300 g (6 balls of cotton yarn. Each ball contains 137 yds / 125 m)
Width = 46 cm /18 in Length = 61 cm / 24 in
st – stitch
CH – chain stitch
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
First, I’ll do one piece of blouse (FRONT)
To begin, it’s necessary to make 88 chains (size M). Multiple of 4 for all sizes.
size S = 80 chains
size M = 88 chains
size L = 96 chains
size XL = 104 chains
size XXL = 112 chains, 120 chains
I’ll make 88 chains for size M.
Row 1: skip 3 chains, double crochet stitch (DC) in the 4th chain, make DC to the end row. Total 86 DC. Turn your work.
Row 2: CH, SC in the first stitch, SC to the end row. Total 86 SC.
Row 3: CH 3, DC in the next stitch, CH 3, skip 2 st, DC 2, *CH 3, skip 2 st, DC 2 *repeat to the end row.
Row 4: CH 3, DC in the next stitch, DC 2 in the first chain three space, *CH 3, DC 2 in the next chain three space *repeat this process. DC 2
Rows 5 – 20: repeat rows 3 – 4
Rows 3 – 4 = Pattern
Row 21: CH 3, DC in the next stitch, DC to the end row. Total 86 st.
Row 22: CH, SC in the first stitch, SC to the end row. Total 86 st.
Repeat rows 21 – 22 eleven times (alternate between DC and SC)
Total 44 Rows
Count 42 stitches from the beginning of the row. Put the marker in that 42th stitch.
Do the same on the other side.
Two stitches are between markers.
Now We are going to make a broad shoulder straps.
Row 1: CH 3, DC in the next stitch, CH 3, skip 2 st, DC 2, *CH 3, skip 2 st, DC 2 *repeat to the first stitch marker.
Row 2: CH 3, DC in the next stitch, DC 2 in the first chain three space, *CH 3, DC 2 in the next chain three space *repeat this process. DC 2
You’ll continue working this pattern for a total of 34 rows.
Connect two parts and continue to work our back. Add two chains between the parts
Continue to repeat the pattern for a total of 30 rows.
Row 31: Chain one and make one single crochet to the end row. First, make SC 2 (SC 2 over DC 2); SC 2 in the first chain three space; SC 2; *SC 2 in the next chain three space; SC 2 *repeat to the end row. Total 86 st.
Row 32: CH 3, Make one DC in each stitch across. Total 86 st.
Fold your work in half. On the side for armholes, measure off about 18 cm / 7 inches and put the stitch marker.
Connect the front and back pieces with sewing needle and yarn.
One row of single crochet around the armholes.
