Crochet Toddler Dress Pattern

Hello, there! 

Since there were many people asking me for the written pattern, I translated the pattern to a pdf (consisting diagrams, written pattern and step-by-step tutorial).

Here are the pattern:



Crochet Toddler Dress Pattern
Translated by Novelia Ummu Nayfah (La Léh Crochet) 

Materials:
  • Bali cotton yarn in green (2 cakes of @100 grams), white (2 cakes  of @100 grams), and small amount of yellow. FYI, the texture of bali cotton yarn looks like bamboo yarn. You may use other sport-weight yarns.
  • Hook: 4/0 Tulip Etimo Rose hook (2.50 mm)
  • Thread and sewing needle (you may use hot-melted glue)
  • Synthetic flowers (you may use this flower as accessory)

Lynn Paulus said...

Ok so I'm wanting to make this dress but I'm having a hard time finding a yarn that would match what you have and I'm getting confused. Our local yarn store doesn't have or even heard of the Bali brand. And everything they have that would be light enough for this summery dress is too thick. Could I make it with embroidery yarn instead? Or another light cotton material that could substitute? Even the sport weight they had seemed heavy to me. is there a link to the specific yarn you used in the PDF? I'm waiting for payday to buy everything to make it You can email me. Jlynnpaulus@gmail

Anonymous said...

Love the pattern but turned out way to big for my 3 yr old granddaughter! What size does this pattern make?

Lynn Paulus said...

I just finished it too. My 5 yr old is tall and skinny so I figure it would fit her. Turned out it was still to big for her. I would say a more average built 5yr old would fit fine in it but it would be too short for my taste so you'd have to make it longer first Maybe repeat round 2 or 3 of thr skirt several times before beginning the increaseing rows. I'd rather shoot myself in the foot than pull out the yarn to remake the skirt, lol but if it works?
