Sales gone, it’s time for something new, for summer>
It’s a dress in pink and green, made with crochet thread (Alize) and a 1.5 mm steel crochet hook. It is a retro style I think, but fits great.
Now more pictures and the stitches I used. The upper part is made joining vertical bands (stripes) of motives.
Pictures first, than some patterns or stitches I used.
For the upper part I used some circles in a square, you can choose any granny squares, with flowers maybe, from http://www.idainteriorlifestyle.com/2011/07/crochet-tutorial-sunburst-in-square.html or maybe pinterest
or the granny from the shrug maybe:
I added an extra round of dc, ch 2.
For the flower stripes :
and for the back and front joining: (the orange stitch) R1: ch 3, sc in 4th st, repeat; R2: 3dc in next ch 3 space, ch 1, and repeat.
And the skirt. First join the top of the dress (upper side). Then work in rounds: First round: chain 3, sc in 3rd st.
For first stitch I didn’t find any image, and it’s pretty easy: 5 dc, ch 2 and reapeat all around. (I made 10 rounds.)
The second one: (the 3rd one from the picture) (I made 8 rounds)
For the next stitch, let’s see if I find something:
I didn’t, obvious: it’s 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in same st, ch 1, reapeat all around ( to increase ch 2, if you need).
I wanted to use this one, I don’t remember why I didn’t…
I will keep all these pictures. Maybe will help.
And finally, the pineapple motif: first one from the bottom.
And now my WIP:
About this next time. I have a short holiday so I will finish it soon:D
Now hashtags:))) #crochet, #crocheted dress, #summer dress
