  1. Stitch List

Below is a list of all the stitches (and their abbreviations) featured in this series of patterns.  All terms used are American.

  • Sc – single crochet
  • Ch – chain
  • Sc inc – sc increase
  • Hdc – half double crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch

 

  1. Notes

Here are a few handy tips to help you with the pattern.

  • The Gauge for the Crochet section of the dress is 16 stitches and 12 rows of hdc in a 10cm square
  • This dress is designed to fit a child approximately age 4 to 5
  • The crochet section of the dress is made first and then the bottom portion is made and they are joined together.
  • I used a sewing machine to join the top and the bottom, but you could also sew by hand if required.
  • Where an instruction is put inside brackets ( ) then that instruction is to be completed in the same stitch.
  • All instructions with ( ) brackets from row 4 onwards to be worked in the ch 1 gap from the previous round
  • Turning at the end of each row ensures that the seam created stays straight down the back of the top

Neck edging – work in snowflake

Row Instruction Stitches
1 Sc around the top edge of the neck of the dress and down the back opening.   Put a (sc, ch 3, sc) in the top corner on the right hand side of the dress to create a button hole
Sl st to start and cast off and sew in ends
Sew button opposite side of button hole.

Bottom & Sleeve edging – work in snowflake

Row Instruction Stitches
1 Sc around bottom edge of the dress  
  Sl st to start and cast off and sew in ends  
  Repeat for both sleeves  

To make the skirt

 Take your fabric and fold it into quarters, place to two folded edges nearest to you.

  • With a tape measure held at the corner of the two folds measure two points, the first 3” from the top and the second 16” from the top.
  • Using multiple marks turn the measurements into a semi circle which should look like this.

  • Cut along the curves at both the 16” and 3” lines and when you open out the fabric you should have a perfect circle skirt.
  • Next you need to hem the bottom of the skirt, I did about ½” hem and sewed it in the silver thread.
  • Finally to finish pin the top of the skirt underneath the crochet top so the top shows over the top of the skirt when finished and using the silver thread sew together.
  • To finish off the dress I made a snowflake in the snowflake yarn and a 5mm hook and sewed it to the top left of the dress.   The snowflake pattern is from attic24’s blog here https://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-snowflake.html
