Crochet baby clothes – super easy dungaree dress, part 1

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the delay. I’ve been crazy busy with my 10 month old 😊 Today I’m starting a completely new project – a dungaree dress for my little girl.

What I’m using:
2 different colours of dk yarn (I’m using a blend at the moment, but hoping to move to cotton if I can find a nice, soft yarn for my next project – advice on where to get it always welcome).

4mm crochet hook
3mm crochet hook (for buttons)

cutting implement

crochet needle

2 buttons

Pattern

Skirt:

R1: ch 11, 1 dc in 2nd chain from hook and all the rest of the row, turn work around
R2: chain 1, dc 1 in each stitch (starting in the very first stitch, not the second)
R3-…. As many rows as you need for your baby’s waist

Put both ends together and crochet together using dc (UK term).

Working down
R1: ch 3, 1 tr in each stitch, sl st to connect first and last stitch
R2: ch 3, 2 tr in each stitch, sl st to connect at the end of row
R3- R16 (or however long your skirt needs to be) ch 3, 1 tr in each stitch, sl st to connect at the end of row
R17: ch 3, 1 tr in each stitch, but use the different colour when doing a sl st to connect at the end of row
R18: ch 3, 1 tr in each stitch, sl st to connect at the end of row, chain one more to fasten off.

PS. In the row where I did 2 treble crochets in each stitch, I actually forgot to chain 3 at the beginning (as I’m sure you noticed 😊). I only realised while editing, but it’s not looking too bad, so I’ve decided to leave it this time.

I hope you enjoyed it and see you for the next part.
Thanks for watching!
