My first crochet design for Ms. Fashionista – a crochet fashion doll tank dress based on her glamorous purple style.
Materials: ( I used )
1.75 mm crochet hook
Cotton crochet thread: pink and purple
Note: I used chainless starting dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round instead of ch 3/ch 4. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2/ch 3, dc/tr into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc/tr). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
Special stitch used:
2dc- V stitch: ( 2 dc, ch2, 2 dc ) into same stitch.
3tr- V stitch: ( 3 tr, ch2, 3 tr ) into same stitch.
Skill level: Intermediate
Gauge: 8 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 1 inch ( with materials indicated )
( work in rounds )
Start with color A yarn, ch40, sl into 1st chain to form round.
R1: dc around, 40 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join
R2 to 5: same as R1
R6: change to color B yarn, sc around, 40 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join
