PEACHILICIOUS !! A DIVINE DRESS

This was a totally irresistible pattern – so I didn’t even bother to resist!  
This pattern was shared by a  friend yesterday and one look at it and I knew this one had to get done .  
Fortunately I had some lovely yarn that I thought would be perfect – just hoping that it’s sufficient to finish all three components of this set.

Here is a sizing chart for general neck sizing


Abbreviations used :
dc : Double crochet           ch : Chain
sp : Space                         sl-st : Slip stitch
ch-sp : chain space
sc : Single crochet
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet                                 
dc 2-tog : Double crochet 2-together


Instructions : (Using U.S 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.
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. 
For today's project, I have split the pattern chart into smaller bits and added them with the rows we're working on, for your convenience.
Please scroll down to the bottom of the blog for the full chart.

The pattern is made in two parts – first we make the yoke, and work up towards the strappy shoulders, and then we come back to that first starting row, and go down to make the skirt.
The original pattern has been made with a row of chain, but I’ve started with fsc.  If you decide to use chain, work one chain more than needed, and then work your first sc in the 2nd ch from hook.

This dress can be made to suit any size - just check for the stitch counts and work according to your child's measurements.  
Please check the top of this blog for useful charts on body measurements.

Stitch count / number calculations :
 a)  The yoke has been made in multiples of four and the skirt is in multiples of eight

So start your work with the number of fsc (plus 2 for border) needed to get one half of your chest measurement, ensuring that the number is evenly divisible by eight as well.. (for your convenience later when making skirt part).

b)  We will make two yoke parts (one each for front and back), and then join the two yokes, and do the skirt portion as one round.

c)  The front part of the yoke is a little lower than the back, so while we make the same yoke, we have a small change for back yoke.

I'm attaching the original chart from the designer, which I've altered a bit when making my own creation.  There is a "V" shaped pattern (made in contrast colour) on the first row of yoke, which I did not want to make.  However, if you do .. this is the full chart.
The shoulder straps are attachment shown with the arrows.

PART 1 : FRONT YOKE
Foundation Single Crochet : fsc : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this video https://youtu.be/mcT85fwh4mA 

Row 1 : Start with fsc as instructed above.  Turn.  

Double Crochet : dc : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk); [yo, draw through 2 lps] twice.  One dc made.  Check out the video at https://youtu.be/xdnjB27zpYo

Chainless start for Double Crochet : I dislike the ch-2 / ch – 3 start, and this is what I do to start my row of dc.
Check out the video at https://youtu.be/wskv3iTjRx0


Row 2 : dc in 1st dc ; 
ch 1, sk 3 fsc, 3 dc in next fsc ; 
*ch 1, sk 3 fsc, 3 dc in next fsc* ; 
rep from *to* till end ; 
sk 3 fsc, dc in last fsc.  Turn

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

Row 3 : dc in 1st dc ; 
3 dc in 1st ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp* ; 
rep from *to* till last ch-1 sp ; 
dc in last dc. Turn.
  
Row 4 : dc in 1st dc ; 
ch 1, sk 1st 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc* ; 
rep from *to* till end ; 
sk 3 dc, dc in last dc.  Turn.

Rep Rows 3 and 4 once more.

Row 7 : Decrease row : 
sl-st in 1st dc , ch and 1st 3 dc ; 
dc in 1st ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp* ; 
rep from *to* till 2nd  last ch-1 sp ; 
ch 1, dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 8 : Decrease row : 
dc in 1st dc ; 
*ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp* ; 
rep from *to* till   last ch-1 sp ; 
ch 1, sk last 3 dc, dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 9 : dc in 1st dc ; 
ch 1, sk 1st 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc* ; 
rep from *to* till end ; 
sk 3 dc, dc in last dc.  Turn.

Row 10 : dc in 1st dc ; 
3 dc in 1st ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp* ; 
rep from *to* till last ch-1 sp ; 
dc in last dc. Turn.

Rep Rows 9 and 10 once more, or till you get the yoke size needed.

Fasten off.  Weave in ends. 


PART 2 : BACK  YOKE
Follow all instructions as for Part 1 of Front Yoke till Row 10. 

Rep Rows 9 and 10 once.  Rep Rows 9 once more.  
Remember to work the same number of repeats for the back as you have for the front.

We will now make our shoulders, so we divide here for the right and left side.

Next row : dc in 1st dc ; 
3 dc in 1st ch-1 sp ; 
*ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp* ; 
rep from *to* once. Turn.

We will continue to work on just these stitches for a few rows, making a shoulder strap.
Now here you have a choice. 
You can either make a short strap and then attach a regular button that you can decorate with a flower (as has designer), 
OR you can attach the ‘dungaree type of button’ attachment.  (Just throwing out ideas.. like I usually do)  

So working with the same pattern as before, continue on these stitches till you have a strap that goes from back to front and will go over the shoulder portion. 
So I’ve done a total of 10 rows for the shoulder (from start).  
Fasten off.  Weave in ends. 
Repeat for the other shoulder.  
Fasten off and weave in those ends as well.

Join the sides of the yoke, using one of the three methods given in the links / video  tutorials at the top of this blog,  and we will now work in continuous rounds for the skirt.
(Pics below - the left hand side shows the extra length of the shoulder bit with the front yoke folded down for clarity.  
The right hand side pic shows front placed over back, so you see the difference in shoulder lengths)

PART 3 : SKIRT
For the skirt part, we go back to the first fsc row and will be working in rounds.  
To do this, keep your yoke facing away from you and pick up the fsc for the skirt.  Now re-attach yarn at one corner (side) of yoke.

As mentioned before, our stitch count here is in multiples of eight.

Note :   Please take a quick look at the full pattern.  
You’ll see that there is this first set of 4 dc – now as you’re adding one dc in the ch-sp just before and after, you are skipping one dc in this 4 dc set.. so you will eventually reach the 1st dc, which, per pattern, you’ve got to skip.. so you’re going to wonder where the ‘dc in 1st dc’ comes from (as you’ve got to skip that dc).. so what I’ve done is just turn my work, sl-st into the 2nd dc (which is then our 1st d), and then continue with pattern as written.  
This will happen from this round on – so please adjust accordingly.

Note : Now once again, we’ve got to do the turn, sl-st into the next dc and ch-sp, so that we’re where we need to be for the first set of stitches.  
However at the end of this round, we will try  to end it in such a way, that we do not need these repetitive turns 

Half Double Crochet : Hdc :  yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk) ; 
yo, draw through all 3 lps.  One hdc made.

rep from *to* till last ch-3 sp ; 
2 dc in last ch-3 sp, 
ch 1, hdc and join to the 1st dc.

(Having used a hdc to join, you are now right in the middle of the ch-3 sp, just where you need to be for the start of the next round.  
So you will start the next set of stitches - 2 dc in this case - right here)

Round 29  to end : Continue with the same pattern as above, reducing the pineapple as we did for the first large one.  
You then can work one full round of just ch 5’s all around.

In case  you want a longer dress (and one more pineapple), you need to check the increase we made at Round 21 (for starting of the next pineapple) and then work the instructions till the end again.

As you’ll see from the chart attached, the designer has then done a row of (dc, picot, dc) in each ch-5 spaces all around.

I have finished my creation with Round 28.. and just for an extra eye-catching finish, have used a contrast coloured yarn for the last two rounds.  
This contrast yarn I will also use in the matching hat that will be in my next write up blog.  
The beauty of this lovely pineapple stitch is that you can end it anywhere and get an absolutely super different finish 

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). 
Here’s a great video https://youtu.be/8s3zVaBcn4s

PART 5 : FLOWER BUTTON 
Sweet Nothings Crochet free crochet pattern blog, chart for button,


I have done something similar but using a pebble for the centre of the button space.  Check this video below for this is a unique idea as well.  


Round 1 : Start with a magic circle, 30 dc in the circle. 
(Tip : Decide on the size of button you wish.. and make this magic circle large enough to fit that button)
(As my yarn was too thick for 30 dc, I made my start round with 24 dc) 

Round 2 : sc in 1st dc ; 
ch 6, sk 3 dc, sc in next dc ; 
*ch 6, sk 3 dc, sc in next dc* ; 
rep *to* till end.  
Join with sl-st to 1st st.

Round 3 : 3 hdc in 1st ch-6 sp , 
ch 3, 3 hdc in same ch-6 sp ; 
*3 hdc in next ch-6 sp , 
ch 3, 3 hdc in same ch-6 sp*; 
rep *to* till end.  
Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.  
Fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Make two of these buttons and attach it at the bottom of the shoulder flap / strap.  If using contrast colour for the last line of your dress, then it may be a good idea to use the same contrast colour here too.
