Instructions:

To begin make 144 chains (144 chains are approximately 80 cm / 31.4 inches).
How to mark chains?
First, make 40 chains. Put the stitch marker in the 41st chain (Here will be a corner).
Then make 30 chains. Put the stitch marker in the 31st chain (Here will be a corner).
Then make 40 chains. Put the stitch marker in the 41st chain (Here will be a corner).
Then make 30 chains. Put the stitch marker in the 31st chain (Here will be a corner).
That’s a total of 144 chains.
That will be the neck hole.

If you want the blouse to be more or less open around the neck, make a different number of chains.
Where there are 30 chains will be the shoulder part and where there are 40 chains will be the front and back of the blouse
Connect the first and last chain. Put the hook into the first chain and pull out the new loop.
Continue to work in around.

Make a slip stitch into the first chain (first marker/first corner)

Rnd 1: 4 chains plus DC into the first chain (first corner); Move the stitch marker in the V-st
Increase stitches on the shoulder part. Add one more stitch to every second chain, so instead of 30, we will have 45 DC stitches. *DC, DC2 *repeat to the next stitch marker
To make a corner again (second corner). It’s a V-st. = DC+CH+DC into the same base chain. Move the stitch marker in the V-st
After that make DC one in the next 40 chains (to the next stitch marker)
Make the third corner (V-st). Move the stitch marker in the V-st
Increase stitches on the shoulder part. Add one more stitch to every second chain, so instead of 30, we will have 45 DC stitches. *DC, DC2 *repeat to the next stitch marker
Make the fourth corner (V-st). Move the stitch marker in the V-st
DC one in the next 40 chains (to the end of the row).
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.

Rnd 2: CH 3 (as the first stitch), V-st in the middle V-st (first corner), Move the stitch marker in the V-st above.
*DC, CH, skip stitch *repeat to the second corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (second corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
DC one in each stitch to the third corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (third corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
*DC, CH, skip stitch *repeat to the fourth corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (fourth corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
DC one in each stitch to the end of the row.
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.

Rnd 3: CH 3 (as the first stitch), DC one in the next stitch,
V-st in the middle V-st (first corner), Move the stitch marker in the V-st above.
*CH, skip a stitch, DC *repeat to the second corner.
Chain one and make V-st in the middle V-st (second corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above.
DC one in each stitch to the third corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (third corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
*CH, skip a stitch, DC *repeat to the fourth corner.
Chain one and make V-st in the middle V-st (fourth corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above.
DC one in each stitch to the end of the row.
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.

Rnd 4: CH 3 (as the first stitch), DC one in the next two stitches, V-st in the middle V-st (first corner), Move the stitch marker in the V-st above.
*DC, CH, skip stitch *repeat to the second corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (second corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
DC one in each stitch to the third corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (third corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
*DC, CH, skip stitch *repeat to the fourth corner.
V-st in the middle V-st (fourth corner). Move the stitch marker in the V-st above
DC one in each stitch to the end of the row.
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.

Repeat Rows 3 and 4, in the shoulder parts where we do the lace pattern, in the same way, to be a total of 20 rows.
If you want, you can make more or fewer rows to make the bolero narrower or wider.
Measure your work on yourself all the time while working.

Join 2 opposite corners with 5 chains. Do the same with the other two corners.

Continue to work around, the front, and the back of the blouse.

The bottom of the blouse

Rnd 1: CH 3 and make DC in every stitch across
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.

Repeat Rnd 1
Make as many rows as you want your blouse to be long.
Measure your work on yourself.
I made 22 rows / approximately 24 cm / 9.4 in
If you want, you can make more or fewer rows to make the blouse longer or shorter.

Last row = Edge

CH one and make SC in the next three stitches.
*CH 3, SC 3 *repeat

Now I’m going to make the sleeves.

Sleeves

Continue to work around using the lace pattern.
Rnd 1: CH 4, skip a stitch, DC, *CH, skip a stitch, DC *repeat
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.
Rnd 2: CH 4, skip a stitch, DC, *CH, skip a stitch, DC *repeat
Slip stitch to the third chain just to close the round.
Repeat Rnd 2 in the same way, to be a total of 11 rows.
If you want, you can make more or fewer rows to make the sleeves longer or shorter.

Edges – sleeve: 

Put the markers in the fifth DC to the left and to the right of the beginning of the row.
Use hook size 2.5 mm (US C/2, UK 12)
Rnd 1: CH one and make 2 single crochet stitches in every chain space to the stitch marker.
Then, make 1 single crochet stitch in every chain space to the next stitch marker (here decrease the number of stitches).
Then, make 2 single crochet stitches in every chain space to the end of the row.
Slip stitch to the first stitch just to close the round.

In the first row, we decrease stitches from one marker to another. This edge width fits my arm. Measure your arm and decrease more or fewer stitches to suit you.

Rnd 2: CH and make SC in every stitch across
Rnd 3: CH one and make SC in the next three stitches.
*CH 3, SC 3 *repeat

Edges – neck: 
Rnd 1: CH and make SC in every stitch across
Rnd 2: CH one and make SC in the next three stitches.
*CH 3, SC 3 *repeat
