Hi. I'm italian and I love

Hi. I'm italian and I love your work so much, but I don't see The second part of tutorial of Lace blouse. Can you help me ? Tank you very much and excuse me for my English.

Hi Caterina,

Hi Caterina,
I’m glad that you like my work. I will upload second part in couple days.

Hello! Thank you very much

Hello! Thank you very much for sharing your work with us. I am trying to make this blouse in a large or x-large. Can you please let me know how many chains I should use? Thank you!

Hi croch3tlov3,

Hi croch3tlov3,
For the L/XL size, I would make a foundation chain of 133 chs to work 22 repeats. When you crochet to your 22nd round, work one more repeat for each front and back parts and skip the same number of repeats for each shoulder part. I wouldn't use a smaller size crochet hook at all. I'd crochet using even larger size crochet hook to widen the garment from the bottom. Happy crochet!
