Row-by-row crochet instructions

Begin crocheting the blouse from the top to bottom.
Make a foundation chain of 127 chs. Join it into a ring with the slip stitch.


Add 18 chs to have 144 chs or multiples of 16 chs.
1st round – ch2, sc5, inc1, [sc6, inc1] to end + into 2nd ch
2nd round – ch3, dc2, ch1, sk1, [dc3, ch1, sk1] to end + into 3rd ch
3rd round – ch5, sk2, [dc3 under 1ch, ch2, sk3] to last 1ch; dc2 under 1ch + into 3rd ch
4th round – ch3, dc2 under arch of 2chs, ch2, [dc3 under arch of 2chs, ch2] to end + into 3rd ch
5th round – ch6, [dc3 under arch of 2chs, ch3] to last arch of 2chs; dc2 under arch of 2chs + into 3rd ch


6th round –, [sc1 under arch of 3chs, ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under arch of 3chs, ch4] to end + into 2nd ch
7th round – [ch3, sk4, dc3, (dc2, ch1, dc2) under 1ch, dc3, ch3, sk4,] to end
8th round –, ch3, dc4, (dc2, ch1, dc2) under 1ch, dc5, [sk7, dc5, (dc2, ch1, dc2) under 1ch, dc5] to end + into 3rd ch

Repeat the pattern starting from the 7th round.

To widen the garment, work 12th, 13th, and 14th rounds using a larger size crochet hook.


Join back and front parts together

15th round – ch1, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 6, ch18, sk three repeats, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 6, ch18, sk 3 repeats + into 1st ch
16th round – [(ch3, sk4, dc3, (dc2, ch1, dc2) under 1ch, dc3, ch3, sk4, x 6, ch3, sk4, dc5, ch1, dc5, ch3, sk4,] x 2
17th round = 8th round
18th round = 9th round
19th round = 7th round
Repeat the 3 rounds of the pattern until you crochet to about your waistline, then continue crocheting with a larger size crochet hook to widen the garment from the bottom.


sc to end

Decorate it with a ribbon.

Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,
Hope you're well. As usual I need your help. My gauge - 2 repeats: 3.5 ins. Chest circumference: 36 ins. How many chains do I need.

Hi Salma,

Hi Salma,
I would suggest you to start with about 157 chs to work 4 repeats for each shoulder part and 9 repeats for each back and front parts. Happy crochet!

Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,
Thanks for your prompt reply. I shall start this project soon and post a picture when completed.

Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,

I started with this pattern with 127 fc as mentioned in pattern with 3.5mm hook. I have reached till arm holes, i feel it will be little bit small arm holes for me. I don't want to start all over again ;( Shall I use 4mm hook from round #12. How will the top look if I jump from 3.5 to 4 mm hook. In your video you have gradually increased the hook size.


Hi ekta,

Hi ekta,
You may use the 4mm crochet hook, it will look good. Happy crochet!

Thanks Sana for the lovely
