Marble Blouse. Free pattern with diagram and stitch chart plus Video Tutorial

Pretty cool how this Marble Blouse of mine can be worn in 2  different ways. Isn’t it?

About the Design

Well, we are playing again with this top-down, raglan technique. I really love it, because you can work one sweater, blouse, top almost in one single piece, so ones you got it I’m sure that you won’t make top garments in other way.

Ok, we will start  the Marble Blouse from the top, working the yoke part, then separate the sleeves from the body and work the 3 parts individually. To obtain this V Neck shape we will increase while making the front panels, and keep increasing until we will get to the desired length. We will keep increasing so the 2 front panels to cross each other.

The sleeves are worked in rounds. No, decreases needed.

About materials we will need

  • Yarn

I used Rainbow Cotton Stone Washed from Hobbii. It’s a fingering, 4 ply, super fine yarn made from 100% soft and natural fiber. Each skein has 

50 grams (1.76 ounces) and 186 yards(170 meters)
 
  • Needles

4 mm (G US size)

Tapestry needle for hiding ends

  • Scissors
  • optional 4 stitch markers to mark the 4 corners of the yoke

This Pattern is available for sizes from S to XXL and is written in US terms.

The final measurement of the Marble Blouse for each size are listed in the diagram bellow. On the first line are the values in cm and on the second one the values in inches.

How much yarn do you need:

S – 275 grams / 935 m/ 1020 yds ( 6 skeins)

M – 300 grams /1010 m / 1100 yds (6 skeins)

L – 320 grams /1081 m /1180 yds (7 skeins)

XL – 340 grams /1150 m / 1250 yds (7 skeins)

XXL – 360 grams /  1220 m / 1330 yds (8 skeins)

*i used the colors randomly so no pattern for the colors. I just took one skein and worked it to the end then pick another. i used a solid color for the border for contouring and a final touch.

About the Stitch

All the Marble Blouse is worked in double crochet. The border is made in single crochet and twisted single crochet.

Bellow you will find the stitch chart with the beginning of the yoke. The chart is representing the stitch number for sizes S and M. For other sizes just follow the chart, but take into consideration that you will have more stitches.

Abbreviations used in this pattern

Ch – chain

Dc – double crochet

Sc – single crochet

St(s) – stitch(es)

Sl st – slip stitch

Inc C – increase in corners (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc in the same st)

Inc E – increase on the front panels edges (2 dc in the same st)

*it’s important to get to the sts gauge because here is all the math of the pattern. If you are not getting to the rows gauge don’t change the crochet hook size. Keep working because the rows will stretch after working more.

Row 1

*the numbers for sizes M, L, XL and XXL are between brackets

Ch 2, 1 dc in the 3rd st, 1 dc in next 5 (5, 6, 6, 7) sts, 1 Inc C in next st (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc), 1 dc in next 20 (20, 22, 22, 24) sts, 1 inc C in next, 1 dc in next 30 (30, 32, 32, 34) sts, 1 Inc C in next st, 1 dc in next 20 (20, 22, 22, 24) sts, 1 Inc C in next st, 1 dc in next 6 (6, 7,7,8) sts. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2

1 dc in the 1st st, [1 dc in the next sts to the corner (the ch 2 space), 1 inc C in the corner]. Repeat to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn

Row 3

1 Inc E ( 2 dc in the same st) in  the 1st dc,[ 1 dc in the next sts to the corner, 1 Inc C in the corner]. Repeat to the end of the row, ending the row with 1 Inc E in the last st.

Rows 4, 5 

Repeat row 2.

Repeat rows 3, 4, 5 until you will get to the end of the yoke. Remember that you have to make 2 rows with no increases, except the ones in corners and one row increasing at the beginning and at the end of the rows.

Keep working until you will have in total:

S – 19 rows

M – 23 rows

L – 27 rows

XL – 31 rows

XXL – 34 rows

Body

Starting with the first row of the body and the separating row, we will increase at every beginning and end of the row. Doesn’t matter which row you have the previous, the first row of the body will be with increases and the one that are about to come also.

Row 1

1 Inc E in first st, 1 dc in each st until you get to the first corner, 1 partial dc in corner, skip the sts for the sleeve to the next corner, 1 partial dc in the next corner, yarn over and pull the yarn through all 3 loops on your hook. Continue with 1 dc in each st to the next corner. Here we will proceed the same as in the opposite side. Continue with 1 dc in each st, until you get to the last one, in the last st 1 Inc E. Ch 2 and turn

Row 2

1 Inc E in the first st, 1 dc in each st until you get to the last st, 1 inc E in the last st.

Repeat row 2 until you get to the desired length. pay attention that the front panels will cross one over the other, and their corners has to reach maximum the side edge of the blouse. Make as many rows as you want or:

S – 22 rows

M – 24 rows

L, XL, XXL – 22 rows

The last row of the body part will be worked in round and we will have to join the 2 front panels on the overlapping portion. We will do the joining by making the dc into the sts of the both sides.

 

Sleeves

Insert the hook and yarn at the armpit and start the round from there. 

Row 1

Ch 2, 1 dc in the same st, 1 dc in each st around. Join with a sl st with first dc. Ch 2 and turn

Repeat row 1 until you get to the desired length of the sleeve or until you have in total:

S – 22 rows

M – 24 rows

L – 26 rows

XL – 28 rows

XXL – 30 rows

You can let the sleeve as it is or you can add the next 3 rounds with a contrasting color

  1. ch 1, 1 sc in the same st, 1 sc in each st around. join with a sl st with first sc.
  2. ch 1, 1 sc in the same st, skip  1 st, 1 sc in next. Repeat the section to the end of the round. Join with sl st with first sc.
  3. ch 1, 1 sc in the same st, 1 twisted sc in each st around (insert the hook into the st, pull out a loop, twist your hook 180 degrees, yarn over annd pull the yarn through the twisted loops on your hook.

 

Add with the same contrasting color that you used for the 3 rounds at the end of the sleeves to make an border in the rest of the parts of the marble blouse. I made the border with 1 row in sc, 1 row in twisted sc. I started with one front panel edge, continuing with the neck line then with the opposite front panel edge. Then turn and make one more row in twisted sc.

On the bottom edge make the same 2 rows.

And this was it with the Marble Blouse.

  1. Hi I’ve never used 4ply before.
    What would happen if I used DK instead with this pattern, do you think I could use a different wool or stick with 4 ply. I do like the stone wash hobbi wool though. I love your patterns x
