If you need a different size, feel free to either add or subtract a stitch number on the front and back pieces. Also, make more or fewer rows, and you can add more chains under your arm.

Connect the front and back parts with 10 chains on both sides. Now we have a total of 136 stitches (58 + 58 +10 + 10). Multiple of 3 + 1. Now we continue to work in a circle.

Row 1: CH, SC 136; Join with a slip stitch. Total of 136 sts
Row 2: CH 3, DC to the end row; Join with a slip stitch. Total of 136 sts
Row 3: CH 3, skip one st, V-st, *skip 2 st, V-st *repeat entire row; skip one st, Join with a slip stitch

Pattern = Rows 3 – 7
Repeat pattern

I made 27 rows from armhole to down
If you want, you can make more rows to make the blouse longer.

If you want, you can make 1 or 2 rows of DC or SC stitches around the armhole.
