This simple tunic pattern was designed with speed and ease in mind. Somehow, even amid the usual chaos of life with a toddler, it practically flew off my hook. That’s why I named it the Dandelion Tunic- it seemed as if it popped up almost overnight! Considering how incredibly fast little ones grow at this age, that’s very important. I purposefully simplified the ribbing by using only front post stitches. I added a row of pretty little eyelets as well, to give the dress a hint of lightness. The improvised eyelets up top do double duty- they add a bit of breezy elegance, and help shape the yoke without using slower, bulkier decrease stitches. This dress will use just half a skein of Caron One Pound Yarn in the 4T size.
"It is a funny thing how fast time flies. I had this toddler dress crocheted, pattern tested and ready to go a year ago. But I kept putting different patterns out before it until it was winter and a little too cold for this dress. So this cute little dress hung in my craft room until this fall where I had to remake it because little girls grow fast! For this dress, you will need to know how to chain, double crochet, and increase. The ruffle sleeves require that you know how to make a magic circle but I have a simplified method you can learn easily."
This Vintage Rounded Yoke Dress is so cute! Perfect for your little one to wear ona ny occasion. You can make this dress using Weight 3 DK yarn (I used some Isaac Mizrahi that I had laying around.). For this dress is also used a 4.25mm Crochet Hook. The best part about this dresss is that it is worked all in one piece from the top down! It's super easy and has a cute ribbon detailing added to the chest.
This is another really smart crochet pattern design. It can be made into a baby romper, with closed legs, or left open as a dress. As a dress, it can be made to be worn alone or as more of a tunic top with leggings. The instructions for the romper pattern start at age 0 and go up to age 2, with additional tunic instructions for ages up to 8. This is definitely a crochet pattern to bookmark and use more than once.
This simple, sweet crochet dress is designed for the advanced beginner. The stitches are easy and the colorful yoke striping adds pizzazz. It is sized to fit ages 0 months to 4 years. Make it as a first dress, and keep making new ones as baby grows, or make a matching dress for big sis.
This pattern is for sizes 12 months - 12 years and is beginner friendly. It can be worked up quickly using chunky yarn and the pattern is simple and easy to follow written in US terms. The Gilet is made in one piece, sewing the shoulders and adding the hood. It is great for a first project or for those still new to the craft. I have added instructions for pockets (There is no pocket instructions in size 12m). Buttons are optional and are easily added. The overall finish is chunky, bouncy and soft. The front lapels and hood will be oversized and will drape for comfort and ease. The stitches used are HDC (Half double crochet) FPDC (Front post double crochet) BPDC (Back post double crochet) stitch explanations will be explained in pattern.
