Lost in Translation? Maybe Not

Well, I can do a little Samba, but I cannot speak nor read Portuguese. I do know that Penguin is Pingouin, though, and I do know how to read a symbol chart. I am so glad I can because . . .

Blusa Queen is a beautiful pattern from this Brasilian website. I started this last week, and it is going well.

For those of you who might want to give this one a try, I have some observations:

  • Try using a larger hook and if necessary thicker yarn if you need a larger size.
  • Begin with the round motifs, joining them as you go.
  • After you have the strip of connected round motifs, begin the filler mesh, and then do the pineapples.
  • Part 2 begins with 2 dc, ch 1 across the last row of the pineapples. There should be a total of 288 stitches, including turning chain. 36 stitches evenly over each circle motif below.

I’ll share more observations later, if I have any.

  1. That’s gorgeous! Dang, I don’t crochet. Anyway, Deb tagged us both with a meme, so I thought I’d say hello.

  2. I am in awe of your crochet skills! I can’t follow crochet patterns as easily as I can knit ones.

    You’re my inspiration to try!
