You will need:
Hook Size 3,5 mm
Cotton Yarn 350 g / 875 m / 959 yds (Weight #2)
Ball (50g) contains 125 m/ 137 yds
Width = 50 cm / 19.6 in
Length = 68 cm / 27 in
st – stitch
CH – chain stitch
DC – double crochet (yarn over the hook once)
Shell – DC 5 in one stitch
First, I’m going to make piece one (FRONT)
I’m going to make 93 chains for size M. Multiple of 10 plus 3
If you need a different size, feel free to either add or subtract from this chain number.
You can easily customize a blouse to your liking.
S = 83 chains
M = 93 chains
L = 103 chains
XL = 113 – 123 chains
XXL = 123 – 133- chains
Multiple of 10 + 3 for all sizes
Row 1: skip 3 chains (as the first stitch), double crochet stitch (DC) in the next chain; DC entire row. Total 91 sts. Turn your work.
Row 2: CH 4, skip st, DC, skip 2 sts, Shell, skip 2 sts, DC, CH, skip st, DC, *CH, skip st, DC, skip 2 sts, Shell, skip 2 sts, DC, CH, skip st, DC *repeat entire row
Row 3: CH 3 (as first st), DC entire row; Total 91 sts. Turn your work.
Pattern = Rows 2 – 3
Repeat Rows 2 – 3
Last row: I finished one part of the blouse with a row of shells. It will be the lower part of the blouse.
I made 56 rows (68 cm / 27 in).
If you want, you can make more rows to make the blouse longer.
Row 1: top of the blouse
Last row: down
BACK = FRONT
Measure 9 cm / 3.5 inches from the end of the row and put the stitch marker.
Connect the shoulder pieces. Use the sewing needle and yarn.
Measure 20 cm / 8 inches from the top and put the first stitch marker.
Measure 20 cm / 8 inches from the first stitch marker and put the second stitch marker
Connect the front and back pieces with a sewing needle and yarn.
Row 1: SC stitches (each row – two stitches)
