Crochet gauge: 18 dc x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"]. 1 repeat of Diag. 1 (1 blossom) measures 6.5 cm [2.5"] in width.

Pattern: See diagram for the blossom pattern.
«1 rapport» = «1 repeat»; «13 luftm» = «ch 13"; «rad» = «row».

Bodice (make 2): Ch 9-11-13. Crochet dc up along one side of chain (first st replaces 2 ch sts) = 7-9-11 dc. In the last ch work 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc, the continue with dc down the other side of chain. Turn the work, crochet back and forth on each side of center chain - 1 dc in each dc from the previous row and in the ch from previous row at the top, work 2 dc, ch 1 and 2 dc every row. Crochet 6-7-8 rows back and forth. Crochet the next 2 rows as follows: ch 2 + 2 dc in the first dc from previous row, * ch 1, skip over 2 dc, 3 dc in the next dc *, repeat from * - * up to the top, in ch from previous row at the top work 3 dc, ch 1, 2 dc. Repeat from * - * down other side.

Top: Place the 2 bodice halves together. Ch 37-39-41 loosely, then sl 35-39-43 along lower edge of one bodice half, ch 1 between halves and sl 35-39-43 along lower edge of the other bodice half, finish with ch 37-39-41. Work 1 row sc in each ch and sl st = 145-157-169 sc.
Crochet the next 5-6-7 rows as follows: 3 dc in first sc, * ch 1, skip over 3 sc, 3 dc in the next sc *, repeat from * - * across row (= 36-39-42 times). Then follow Diagr. 1 - start on the 2nd row = 145-157-169 sc. There will be 11-12-13 blossoms on lower edge – each blossom is made on 13 sc of the previous row, therefore on the next row you will need to dec 2-1-0 sts by skipping over 1 sc.
Note: on sizes S and L there will be 1 blossom at center front; on size M the space between 2 blossoms will be at center front.

Assembly: Sew the 2 bodice halves together at center front for approx. 5 cm [2"].
Make 3 ch-st cords approx. 100 cm [39 3/8"] long with 2 strands Den-M-nit. 2 of the cords are used as straps. Sew 1 cord to each side of back, then thread cord through top of bodice halves on front. Tie cords at back of neck. The 3rd cord is used to tie the back together. Start at top and thread cords alternately thought right and left sides of back, cross-crossing cords.


The bottom border of the top, (blossoms) can be crocheted to desired length and sewn around bottom edge of skirt or pant leg.

Materials: DROPS DEN-M-NIT (disc.)
(alternative MUSKAT rom Garnstudio)
50 g of yarn will make approx. 12 flowers.

Crocheted border: Measure around bottom edge of skirt and calculate how many blossoms you need - 1 blossom measures approx. 6.5 cm [2.5"] in width. Ch 13 per blossom to start and crochet according to Diagr.1.
