Crochet 0-3 Months Dress

Crochet 0-3 Months Dress




 I love how babies look when they wear homemade dresses. I was inspired to make this dress when my daughter was a baby. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. This pattern is probably one of my favorites!


Abbreviations:
dc=double crochet
sc=single crochet
sl st=slip stitch
ch=chain

If you tell others about my work, please only link back to my blog, but don't copy my patterns to your site. Also you can sell anything you make from my patterns, but don't sell the free pattern. Thank you! 


Supplies:
H hook
Caron soft Pink and Cream yarn, 1 1/2 skeins of Pink and less than 1/2 of white or any 4 ply yarn would work, I found the soft yarn is nice, but can be heavy.
Ribbon, I used 1 inch thick ribbon

I saw this on Ravelry, and knew instantly that I have to make it for my great granddaughter due in May. And a 2nd one for another one due in July. I better get busy!

Love this pattern..I am going to make for my granddaughter who will arrive in June. Do you know how I should adjust the pattern if using baby sport yarn? Would I just need to go up a hook size?

If you want to keep it the same size, I dont think the yarn will change the size too much, so I'd keep it the same.

Ruffle Row
So St into rnd 2 back loop in the back with the sl St . This part confuses me as to what I'm sl stitching into

Can you explain

Thanks
Donna

ok it means you made a round 2 of back loops, and you are going to sl st your yarn into those back loops you created to start the ruffles. Here is a video on how to do that from a ruffle skirt I made in the past: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V50K10S2cg

After Rows 7-9 on the line that begins For the other strap: Is the pattern missing the words TURN -4 DC? My straps are not the same length with the pattern as written.

Rows 7-11: Ch 1, dc in the next 4, Turn -4 dc (Repeat 5 times) Fasten off (That creates one strap)
For the other strap: Slip stitch onto the other side of row 6, Ch 1, dc into the next 4 dc, Turn, Repeat rows 7-11 on this new strap, ch 1, dc in the next 4, Turn

Take both front and back of the dress and sew the straps together and the bottom of Rows 1 and 2 together, Leave the other rows open for the arm holes.
