Crochet off the shoulder blouse

Crochet off the shoulder blouse

This is one of my favorite blouse types, long sleeves with boat neckline – chic and flattering for any body figures. Also, you have more than one way to wear this top.

The crochet pattern is designed by mainly simple stitches and embellished with cable lines.

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

This crochet pattern is done by 2 identical front and back parts, seam to join shoulder and body lines. The sleeves are crocheted continuously from the armholes.

Special stitch used:

3×3 fptc left cross: ( worked over 6 sts )

skip 3 sts, fptc around each of next 3 sts, working in front of the fptc just made, fptc around each of 3 skipped sts.

This crochet off the shoulder blouse pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge:  13 double crochet stitches x  7 rows = approximately 3 inches ( with materials indicated )
