As the warm weather is officially here. Ms. Hairtastic loves to enjoy sunny days out in her lovely sun dress xD
Materials: ( I used )
2mm crochet hook
Cotton crochet thread: pastel pink and blue
Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/round instead of ch3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
Special stitch used:
V stitch: ( dc, ch1, dc ) into same stitch or space
2dc-V stitch: ( 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc ) into same stitch or space
3dc-V stitch: ( 3 dc, ch1, 3 dc ) into same stitch or space
