Instructions:
First, we will do the top part of the blouse, which is made in a circle.
Make 126 chains and join the last and first chain with a slip stitch. Continue to work around.
Rnd 1: chain one and make single crochet st in the next 126 chains. Join with a slip stitch. Total of 126 SCs
Rnd 2: We’ll add 21 DCs
CH 3 (first st), DC in the next 4 sts, DC 2 in one st *DC 5, DC 2 in one st *repeat entire row; Join with a slip stitch. Total 147 sts (multiple of 7)
Pattern (Rnd 3 and Rnd 4)
Rnd 3: CH 3 (first st), DC in the next st, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st, *DC 4, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st *repeat entire row except for two last sts, DC in the last two sts. Join with a slip stitch.
Rnd 4: CH 3, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts, *DC 2, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts *repeat entire row except for the last stitch, DC in the last st. Join with a slip stitch.
Rnd 5: We’ll add 21 DCs
CH 3 (first st), DC in the next 5 sts, DC 2 in one st *DC 6, DC 2 in one st *repeat entire row; Join with a slip stitch. Total 168 sts (multiple of 7)
Rnds 6 – 7: Repete pattern once (Rnd 3 and Rnd 4)

CH 3 (first st), DC in the next 7 sts, DC 2 in one st *DC 8, DC 2 in one st *repeat entire row; Join with a slip stitch. Total 210 sts (multiple of 7)
Rnds 12 – 13: Repete pattern once (Rnd 3 and Rnd 4)

If you need a different size, make more or fewer rounds.
Continue adding stitches in the same way (DC 21 in every third row)

We have 210 stitches
Mark the front and back parts.
Front – 70 stitches
Back – 70 stitches
Shoulders – 35 stitches
Continue to work the front and the back part.

Front
Row 1: CH 3 (as first st), DC in the next st, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st, *DC 4, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st *repeat entire row except for two last sts, DC in the last two sts. Turn your work.
Row 2: CH 3, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts, *DC 2, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts *repeat entire row except for the last stitch, DC in the last st. Turn your work.
Pattern = Row 1 – 2
Repeat pattern twice
Total 4 rows.

Back
Repeat the pattern three times.
Total 6 rows.

If you need a different size, make more or fewer rows, on the front and back pieces and you can add more chains under your arm.

Connect the front and back parts with 10 chains on both sides. Now we continue to work in a circle.

Rnd 1: We are going to do the first row of the pattern on the front and back of the blouse, and where we made 10 chains, we’ll make 14 double crochet stitches. We have a total of 168 stitches (70 + 70 +14 + 14). Multiple of 7.
CH 3 (as first st), DC in the next st, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st, *DC 4, skip st, 3DCShell, skip st *repeat, DC in the last two sts. Join with a slip stitch. Total of 168 sts
Rnd 2: CH 3, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts, *DC 2, skip 2 sts, 5DCShell, skip 2 sts *repeat entire row except for the last stitch, DC in the last st. Join with a slip stitch. Total of 168 sts

Repeat the pattern (Rnds 1 – 2)

I made 30 rows from armhole to down
Last row (Row 31): SC st.

If you want, you can make more rows to make the blouse longer.

If you are doing a different size than mine, always make sure the number of stitches is divisible by 7 (multiple of 7)

Make 1 row of SC stitches around the armhole.
