Step-by-step crochet instructions

Part 1 video tutorial

Begin crocheting each half of the blouse from the bottom to top.

First half of the summer top

Make a foundation chain of 93 chs for each half of the summer top or multiples of 22 chs plus 5 additional chs.
1st row (right side) – h5ch, dc to end + RC5
2nd row (wrong side) – h8ch, trc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, sc7, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, (ch1, sk1, trc1) x 2, [ch1, sk1, trc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, sc7, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, (ch1, sk1, trc1) x 2] to end + RC3
3rd row – h5ch, dc to end + RC1
4th row – h2ch, sc1, [sc4, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, (ch1, sk1, trc1) x 3, ch1, sk1, dc1, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, sc3] to end + RC3
Repeat the pattern starting from the 1st row until you crochet 12 rows. Then continue crocheting the 4 rows of the pattern using a smaller size crochet hook for the following 16 rows. After that, work the next 12 rows using a larger size crochet hook again to widen the garment.

41st row – h4ch, dc to last 1ch; dc2 into 1ch + RC3
42nd row – h5ch, trc1, [ch1, sk1, trc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, sc7, ch1, sk1, hdc1, ch1, sk1, dc1, (ch1, sk1, trc1) x 2] to last 1ch; trc1 + RC3

54 – 59 rows = 54 – 59 rows of the first shoulder part

Second half of the summer top

Work the second half of the top as the first half, but crochet 56 long rows and 3 short shoulder rows.

Join shoulder pieces together

Hi Luz,

Hi Luz,
Thank you for sharing your work with us and modeling it. I appreciate it. Probably because of we had different gauge, your sleeves look wide. You may fix it by working sc or dc decreasing some sts. Just a suggestion. Happy crochet!

Hi Sana, I did some sc

Hi Sana, I did some sc decreasing on the sleeves then I sew some chains on underarm to make my sleeves narrow. It looks better now. Thanks.

Hello mam.... I want to make

Hello mam.... I want to make this garment on cotton thread and my bust size is 39 so kindly suggest me the no. Of chains and also how can I get the perfect body fitting shape ...... thanks

Hi Minakshi,

Hi Minakshi,
I would advise you to practice your gauge/tension on a small piece before starting the big one. If you adjust your gauge to one repeat equals about 4.9 inches, you may follow the pattern exactly. Happy crochet!

Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,
I love your work alot and have made tops already. Can i suggest something? Can you please write out measurements for M/L/XL in advance? As you are always writing for S. It will be so much better if you just write out in your tutorial than in the question part.

Hi Rosy,

Hi Rosy,
I'm glad that you like my work. Thank you for the suggestion. Happy crochet!
