Introducing the Napa Valley Lacy Blouse! This is an elegant lace top that you’ll want to wear every day! The open shell design creates a fun mesh lace that pairs well with your favorite tank top. You can even increase the length and make it into a full-length pullover beach coverup!

When I was younger, I had a white blouse with a band at the waist and was just all mesh. And I loved it! That blouse is sadly long gone, but when I first got this yarn, I knew this was the perfect yarn to remake it. I needed a lacy pattern that wasn’t typical mesh – that’s been done before! But then I remembered an old farmers market bag that I designed. So why not try that pattern again? After all, a mesh bag and a mesh blouse are similar, so why not try my lacy alternative again? Well, I’m happy to say, it WORKED!

This blouse is worked bottom up. You start with the band, connect it, and then work back and forth in repeatable rounds to create the mesh lace. There’s also no seaming, as the shoulders are connected with a few well-placed sc’s to keep it in pattern. You can use any DK weight yarn, and you’ll need 750-1300 yards, depending on size. I used Berocco Pima 100 in Sage, and it has a lovely drape and that doesn’t weigh you down. This lovely blouse comes in sizes Small (32”) to 5XL (60”). You will need a basic understanding of the crochet stitches chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet.

As always you are welcome to reach out if you have any questions about the pattern. Once the pattern is purchased, you may sell your finished items, as long as you give credit to me as the designer.
