Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. 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 into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

This crochet pattern is done by 2 identical front and back parts, seam to join shoulder and body lines.

Special stitches used:

V stitch: ( dc, ch2, dc ) into same stitch or space.

2dc-V stitch: ( 2dc, ch2, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

3dc-V stitch: ( 3dc, ch2, 3dc ) into same stitch or space.

4dc-V stitch: ( 4dc, ch2, 4dc ) into same stitch or space.

This sand waves oversized dress pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches )
