Instructions : Using US terminology
Please note that I start all my rows with a ch 1, turning chain for ease.
Please check the top of this blog for easy video tutorials on all stitches used in today's pattern.  For your convenience there video tutorials through the blog too
Please read through all my notes before you pick up your hook, so you know just where we're heading in our pattern.
In my patterns I work with the principle of stitch count and body measurement.  
This means that you need to work the stitch count in pattern, till you get the measurement (length and/or width) that you need for your project.  

I do not claim this to be my pattern , but here are my pattern notes as I make my own original project

I have made a few  changes to the original pattern – but the original charts are attached.. so choices.. choices .. choices n decisions..  for you  

So for this pattern we make two identical parts – one each for front and back.  
We start with the yoke and then work up towards shoulders, and then go back to that first yoke line, and go down for the skirt part.  

This pattern has probably been made for a larger sized child – but I’ve decided to make it for a 0-6 month old and my calculations are per my requirement.  
Hopefully, the calculations will also allow you to tweak it to your requirements.  

So as I said before, get the stitch count right, and you can make it to suit a child of any size 

Our stitch count is in multiples of 4 + 1
(This means you work as many stitches in multiples of 4 and then add 1 at the end)


PART 1 : YOKE 
(Make two - one each for front and back)

With today's pattern, I have cut the chart up into smaller sections for ease of viewing.  
In case this is too confusing for you, please scroll to the bottom of the blog for the full chart.

Foundation Single Crochet : fsc :  https://youtu.be/mcT85fwh4mA  

Start with 49 fsc (if you are making this for a 0-9 month old as well , else work  multiples of 4 + 1).  Turn 

Note :  I’ve used the original chart which shows ch, but I’ve started with fsc.
I always start my projects with foundation chain as it gives a neat and stretchy start.  In case you are unable to work fsc, (and I urge you to try - you'll use it everytime, trust me), then start with multiples of 4 + 2.  Work your 1st sc in the 2nd ch from hook and work an sc all the way down to the end.  Check that you have the stitch count right and then continue with Row 1.

With right side facing, sk 5 small shells ; re-attach yarn and rep Rows 8 & 9 to match the other shoulder just made.


Sweet Nothings Crochet free pattern blog, chart for yoke of for beautiful lacy dress,

One side of yoke made.  Please make one more similarly for the back.

Attach the shoulders and attach sides of your yoke, leaving an  armhole opening.  
We will now work the bottom ‘skirt’ part in rounds. 
We will start working on the skirt part of our dress from the other side of the fsc (of yoke).

In case you started with sc, you will be working under that sc Row 1 of  your yoke.

So turn your work in such a way that the shoulder portion is facing you, and you have the lower part of the yoke fsc ready to be worked on.

Re-attach your yarn at one corner (the joint of the armhole where you’ve just joined the two fsc for back & front in yoke is a good idea).

Rows 10-15 are one pattern repeat as you may have noticed.  
So depending on the size you are working on, rep Rows 10-15 till you get the length needed, ending with Round 15.

Border info :
The border is just the very last row and all we do differently is add a round of picots as we work that last round.  So once you have reached the length needed, here's how you work your picot edging.
Take a look at the chart, and work as many (or as few) picots as you wish all around the edging of your dress.

I have worked a ch 3 picot ; which is (ch 3, sl-st into the 3rd ch from hk).  

How to picot : Traditionally for a ch-3 picot, you work (ch 3, sl-st in 3rd ch from hook).  For a ch-5 picot, you will do (ch 5, sl-st in 5th ch from hook).

Finishing : I’ve worked one row of the shell as a border.  
My shells are (sc in the 1st st ; sk next 2 sts, 5 dc in next st).  
I worked this all around the armhole opening and neck, to coincide with the shells in the dress and give it a good neat finish.  
If you are working this shell border, first run a round of sc all around and ensure that you get the stitch count in multiples of 5

  1. Do you have anything for ages 10 - 12? I would love to do something like this for my granddaughter. She is eight but very tall for her age. So size 10 but length of twelve is what would be right for her. Thank you.

    1. Hi channage.. so this pattern can be made to any size, using any yarn with a suitable hook, making sure that you have the stitch count right. This means that you will work the stitch count for the round chest / round waist size and then continue with the pattern for the length you need. All my patterns are worked on this basis which makes them 'all sized' :) There are links given on all my free pattern blogs for body sizing charts - in case you need them. In your case, you have your model and just use one of her well-fitting dress / garment as a draft back up.

  2. I also need a vest ( sleeveless pullover) for my eight year old grandson. He’s her twin so again size twelve. I see some vests for eight and ten year olds but I’d like him to wear it a few years rather than just one winter.

  3. I have not made a sleeveless vest (that I have blogged or written a pattern about) as yet. However, you could check out my Pinterest boards and see if there are any patterns there that you could adapt for your son. As soon as I get an order for a young boy's vest, I'll have one up on my blog :) Cheers and have a creative day
