Blusa de Crochê – Part 2 (Translation of Terms)

Welcome to “Part 2” of my translation of terms for this crochet top. I’m sure no one has been waiting around twiddling their thumbs hoping I post this, but alas, I am finally finishing it for anyone who may be interested and find it useful.

This pattern comes from Ana Maria Braga of Aprendendo Crochê. <– This link has both the video and the written instructions for the top, which you will have to follow while referencing the translation of terms below.

I will also include the helpful notes and info that I learned while making this top myself, which are not direct translations of the site or the pattern. Continue reading
