Crochet Fold Dress | Pattern & Tutorial DIY


for this project project any category 4
yarn will work but I used a half a skein of lion brands pound of love in Oxford
gray and elephant gray as for tools a five and a half millimeter hook
scissors stitch markers and a tape measure there’s a written pattern down
below use offer code TCDDIY for a discount watch to the end of the video
to learn how to enter this week’s giveaway or using five stitches for this
project and they will be as follows chain slip stitch single crochet half
double crochet and double crochet this tutorial is for a size small but you can
adjust it for your size and we explain how to in the video so let’s get started
starting off this dress we’re first gonna grab our category four yarn make a
slipknot grab our five and a half millimeter hook and start off by making
a chain that can wrap around the widest part of your bust and just let y’all
know I’m gonna make a chain of a hundred or that comes out to 29 inches or 74
centimeters once when we have our chain we are now going to connect it into the
first chain that we made so all we’re going to do is run our thumb along one
side of our chain making sure it’s all facing one direction so that’s easier
for us to go into the next row then we’re going to slip stitch into that
first chain that we made so insert your hook yarn over pull through and now
we’re going to have to do some measuring okay so we are back we have inserted our
hook in with a slip stitch into the first chain that we have and now like I
said we’re going to have to do some measuring and the measuring that we’re
going to do is actually going to be there yeah the measuring that we’re
going to do is actually going to be for the fold that is going to come up and
over our shoulders so however thick you want your fold to be you’re going to
take from where we insert our hook over to the link that you guys want I have
already measured mine out mine is going to be three and a half inches or nine
centimeters and then you guys are going to do the same thing from that stitch
marker over so from here over I have another three and a half inches or nine
centimeters or if you guys want to go by loops I have just about 13 loops from
here to stitch marker number one and then 13 from stitch marker number one to
stitch marker number two but now that we have that we’re actually going to start
working on the back before we do anything else but once when we get here
we’re actually going to want to try this on we’re going
make sure that this is about an inch above our waist and then we’re going to
make a chain that is high enough to reach about mid boob and then from there
we’re going to work along the back until we hit our stitch marker number two and
then we can go in with our full detail from there so from here I have already
determined the length that I want so I’m just going to go in with a chain of 21
or that comes out to about six inches or 15 centimeters but you guys can go ahead
and just for whatever size you guys need and once when we have our chain what
we’re gonna do from here is block off that last chain do a chain up of one
flip our work and then into that loop that we blocked off or the second chain
from our hook we’re gonna be going in with a slip stitch let’s do the next one
together into that next available loop insert yarn over pull through and from
here just go ahead and put one back loop not back loop yet just put one slip
stitch into every loop that we have going back down our chain and then once
we make it down to the base chain we’ll meet each other back so that we can do a
slip stitch into that together now that we’ve made it all the way down to our
base we are now going to slip stitch it into the next available loop that we
have into our base so let’s find it first
this is the next available loop and making sure that oil is going to go in
the wrong way making sure that we’re going into the opposite direction that
we have our stitch markers in because we’re going to be working on the back
right now so right here there we go that’s why it’s easier insert yarn over
pull through and then once when we have that we’re closed off that first row
we’re going to work our way up to the second row yarn over pull through flip
our work and from here we’re just gonna go all the way down with back loop slip
stitches so the same deal just making sure that we’re going in through those
back loops with a slip stitch and then once we make it to the end we’re going
to meet each other back so that we can do an increase together now that we’ve
made it to the end we’re going to do a chain up of two that counts as our
increase sort of we’re gonna flip our work and
then into that second loop that we have from our hook we’re gonna insert into
that back loop yarn over pull through and that counts as our increase for the
end right here and from here go ahead and just put one back loop slip stitch
into every loop that we have going back towards our base once we hit the base go
ahead and attach it with a slip stitch just like
how we normally do work your way back up and then we’re gonna do one more
increase together and then I’ll let you guys know how far along you guys need to
do this portion for so we have made our way back down and we are back at the end
of our work this is the side that we’re going to be doing our increases on so do
a chain up of two flip our work and then into that second loop from our hook go
in with that back loop with a slip stitch and go ahead and keep going all
the way down with back loop slip stitches and we’re gonna keep doing this
section until this reaches in front of your underarm but also in making sure
that it doesn’t go up past your underarm because this needs to go underneath it
so keep that in mind while you guys are doing this and then I will meet you guys
back so that we can do that portion together and then I’ll also let you guys
know the measurements and how many rows I have in the next clip as well okay so
we are back with our increase portion and then this is actually as high as I’m
gonna go and I’m just gonna keep going back until this reaches our underarm but
on the back side so from here I’m just going to do a chain up of one and then
do back loop slip stitches going all the way back and forth no increases no
decreases until this is on the other side of my underarm so let’s just get
this started and then I’ll let you guys go from there oh and then also of my
measurements just to let you guys know I have a total of ten rows and then this
from here all the way down to here I have just a little bit over an inch and
a half or four centimeters but keep in mind that this does stretch quite a bit
while you guys are doing this as well I know the whole thing once when it’s done
is gonna look super duper small but it does stretch and it’ll fit I promise but
anyways once when we get here we’re gonna do a chain up of one flip our work
and then just go all the way down with back loop slip stitches connecting into
the base the same way that we’ve been connecting and then yeah just keep doing
that no increases no decreases until we get to the other side of our underarm ok
so we are back with our little underarm portion and as you guys can see we have
done a little bit of extra stuff to this so really quickly before we get started
on this back portion what we’re going to want to do is actually count and see how
many of these increased rows that we have and then also how many rows we have
of this blunt portion that goes under our arm
so for me from this first row sorry from this first row all the way up until
where I stopped you my increases I had a total of 10 rows so once when we get
here into where this second stitch marker is the one that’s furthest away
from our work right now we’re going to count out another 10 insert another
stitch marker and this is just to help us visualize where we need to stop doing
our back portion and then also start going into the underarm and then the
decrease portion this is just for us so from here all the way until however many
rows you guys have go ahead and insert your stitch marker like I said I have 10
and from this point we’re going to insert another stitch marker which just
so happens to be the same amount of rows that we have right here for our underarm
portion and then go ahead and insert that as well just let you guys know I
have a total of 10 here as well so I have 20 so from this second stitch
marker that I had that’s away from my work all the way until I inserted my
last stitch marker I have a total of 20 loops and then from here we’re going to
do a little chain up chunk that is going to help us maintain our fold and then
from here all the way down until we hit this stitch marker that we just inserted
is going to be our back portion but now that all of that is out of the way we
can actually go in with the height of the back piece that we need so what I
like to do is measure and see how long I have from my first slip stitch sorry I
can’t speak slip stitch to where I have my first stitch marker and like I said
before that is a total of let’s look at my notes three and a half inches or nine
centimeters or 13 loops so I actually like to go about an inch below that when
I go up with my chain up chunk because I like for my flap to cover the armhole
that we have so instead of going up with a total of 13 chains which is what I
have here I’m gonna go in with 10 chains but you guys can go ahead and just from
there it can be the same amount of chains as you guys want or it can be
less just as long as you guys are aware that if it is significantly less than
what we have the fold that we have over here may buckle just a little bit but go
ahead and determine however many loops you guys need and make a chain of that
count and then now that we have this little back extender portion what we’re
gonna do is pluck off that last chain do a chain up of one into that second loop
from our hook or the one that we just blocked off
go in with a slip stitch and from here this parts gonna be SuperDuper easy
we’re just gonna go all the way down with back loops slip stitches until we
hit our base we’re gonna connect into the base just like how we normally do
and we’re gonna keep going back and forth like this with no increases no
decreases until we hit our next stitch marker and then from there we can go in
with our let’s do it this way so you guys can see we can go in with our
underarm portion which would be here and then our decrease portion which would be
from here to here and then from there these two front parts will be our fold
so go ahead and keep going back and forth with back loops slip stitches
until you guys hit your stitch marker and then I’ll meet you guys back so we
can do the rest already so we have made our way all the way down to our stitch
marker down here this is our back portion I know this looks bananas but
please just keep in mind that it stretches quite a bit but just to let
y’all know from the first row that we have all the way until Y ended I have a
total of seven inches or 18 centimeters in total but yours can be whatever
measurement you guys have I’m just letting you guys combine but once when
we have this we’re gonna be going in with our little under arm portions so
the same thing that we did from here to here right before we start doing our
increases on this side so however many rows you guys did here go ahead and do
the same amount of rows but some quick tips right before we get started if you
guys have actually ended up here and then your next row needs to be your
underarm portion you guys have two options
you guys can either cut and tie reattach your yarn down here and then go up the
same amount of loops that you guys have on this side which would still look fine
but that would just mean that the ribbing just for this one room would
look just a smidge bit different but you guys can also which is another option
work your way back down with another row of back loops slip stitches but when you
guys do that just keep in mind that when you guys are going in with your underarm
portion however many rows you guys have you guys are going to be doing that
amount but subtract one because you guys had to go back down taking away one of
these loops down here for the underarm portion I hope that makes sense but once
when we do make our way down here to the bottom we’re just gonna go up until we
have the same amount of loops we’re gonna flip our work well chain of all
flip our work and then go back down with back loop slip stitches so once when we
got I actually had a total of 25 loops so
from here I’m just going to slip stitch into that next loop which is the one
that has my stitch marker in it go up 25 loops this is just for mine to a chain
out of 125 back loops down and then keep doing that for the same amount of rows
that you guys had right here and I had a total of 10 rows so I’ll meet you guys
back once we have this portion all finished up already so we have just
finished up doing this underarm portion that matches this underarm portion that
we have right here and then now we’re going to start working on the decrease
section well on this side it was an increase but over here we’re going to be
doing a decrease section but I have some things to talk to you guys about this
section first if you guys remember however many rows you guys did we were
only increasing into every other row until we got to this high point that we
had right here that can reach underneath our underarm well once when we got up
here we didn’t do any increases but that still counted as our increased rows
because it helped us work our way up to our underarm portion so as you guys can
see from my underarm portion right here to here I have about 10 rows and I have
those 10 rows right here but once when we start going in with our decrease
section for the first two rows I will not be doing a decrease so that I can
match this one over here and then after that we will be doing a decrease into
every other row to match the increase that we had over here into every other
row until we get the same amount of rows that we have right here so with that
being said I’m just going to go into my next two loops that I have with my 25
loops which is the amount that I have right here I’m not going to be doing any
decreases but then once when we hit my third row once more going into the
decrease section I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do a decrease together
and if this is a little confusing you are more than welcome to leave a comment
down below I know it can get a little mind-boggling up in here but go ahead
and do that or you guys and also grab the pattern which is linked in the
description as well so go ahead and do the next two rows and I’ll meet y’all
back ok so we are back with our two rows and now we’re going to do a decrease
together so what we’re going to do is do a chain up of one flip our work we’re
going to insert our hook into that next available back loop yarn over pull
through into that next available back loop yarn
/ and we’re going to pull through everything that is on our hook and from
here go ahead and keep going down with back loop slip stitches once we hit the
base go ahead and connect into the base just like how we normally do and then
work your way back up not doing a decrease because remember we’re
decreasing into every other row so meet you guys back once we get back up here
so that we can do one more decrease together and then we’ll move on from
there so we have just worked our way back up after our decrease row we have
gone down slip stitch into the base came all the way back up not doing a decrease
and from here we’re going to do a chain up of one flip our work and then going
back down towards the base we’re going to be doing another decrease so into
this first available loop back loop that is yarn over pulled through into this
next available back loop yarn over pull through everything on our hook and then
from here go ahead and just maintain doing this decrease into every other row
sequence all the way down until you guys hit your stitch marker that you guys
have left for yourselves until we need to start doing the fold so I’ll meet you
guys back in just a little bit all right so we have made our way all the way down
with our decrease portion and everything is nice and even and everything looks
crazy but once when we get here we’re going to go all the way around what we
just did with a row of single crochet so that it’s easier to connect everything
to once when we’re ready to connect everything so two things well are just
one thing but if you guys end down here you guys go ahead and just do a chain up
of one and then work your way all the way up and around or if you guys ended
up here go ahead and cut and tie reattach your yarn down here making sure
that you guys are going into the same loop that our work is currently in
because we don’t want to take away any of the loops that we have for the fold
and then just go all the way around with single crochets again so that is going
to be completely up to you when it comes to these top portions try your best I
know it’s not going to be a hundred percent possible but try your best to
put one single crochet into each of these side slip stitch rows so for
example from here to here I have 20 rows I’m going to try to make sure that I
have 20 single crochets from here to here and then however many rows you guys
have from here to here same deal and then same deal over here if you guys
can’t it’s totally fine just make sure that it’s not completely condensed
otherwise it won’t give you the stretch that this stitch actually gives you so
go ahead and work your way all the way around when you guys
make your way back down here I’ll meet you guys so that we can attach it into
the same loop that our work is currently in and then we can get started on
talking about the fold and we have just made our way all the way around with
doing single crochets around the entirety of our piece and from here
we’re just going to slip stitch into the same loop that this first slip stitch
Row was into right here because we don’t want to take away any loops from the
fold we’re going to slip stitch into there we’re going to do a chain up of
one and cut and then next we’re going to need to do a little bit of measuring
where my scissors we’re going to need to do a little bit of measuring so that we
can get started on the fold okay so I found my scissors and we are back and
now we are going to do a little bit of measuring as you guys can see I’ve
inserted my stitch markers this is just a visual to show you guys where you’re
going to be measuring you’re going to want to try this on and when you try
this on be sure to pull this in as tightly as it would be as if you were
actually wearing it and then once when we have that from these stitch markers
which is actually where our increase and decrease rows end right before we hit
our underarm portion we’re going to take that and then we’re going to wrap it
around ourselves around our back well over our arm over our back and then over
our other arm and then back to this other blunt section that we have right
here and then we’re going to make a chain from those two points with that
measurement that you guys just made and just to let y’all know my measurement
that I have is a total of 25 inches or 64 centimeters or that comes out to
about 90 chains so once when we know those we’re going to insert our hook
into any one of these stitch markers if I can and if we don’t split the yarn and
then we’re just going to make a chain that comes out to that length and then
we’re going to slip stitch it back into this stitch marker that we have over
here and then we’re going to do a chain up of one and cut okay so we are back
and we have just made our chain and this is looking even crazier than it did
before but once when we have this now we’re just going to go around with our
rows of our first single crochet and the next a bunch of back loop half double
crochets to form our fold so in order to get that started we’re first going to do
a row of single crochets we’re going to take a look at any one of these
loop’s that is right next to where our body portion is that is going into this
fold chain that we made for ourselves and into the next available loop that we
have we are going to be inserting our hook that’s not it this one right here insert our yarn pull through and then
from here we’re just going to go in with a row of back loop single crochets going
all the way up and around over to the other side so let’s just do the first
one together into this next available back loop that
we have we’re going to insert our hook yarn over pull through yarn over pull
through two let’s do just one more actually into this next available loop
insert into that back loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two
and you just keep doing this all the way around including our chains so once when
we hit our chain right here we’re not going to be going into the back we’re
just going to go straight up into the chain all the way around and then once
we hit the end of this chain then once we hit this chain we’re going to be
working down our decrease section and then down this side and it’ll meet you
guys back so that we can slip stitch it into the base chain together so we have
just made our way back around with our back loop single crochets around our
body around the chain and then town the other side of our body and now we’re
going to slip stitch into the next available loop that we have into that
base chains we’re going to kind of pull this apart if yours is equally as
difficult go ahead and do the same without splitting the yarn and then
we’re going to go in with a slip stitch and then from here we’re going to be
going in with back loop half double crochets so how we are going to start
this rule off because every other row is going to be different we’re going to
insert our hook in through the next two loops that we have into our base with
one slip stitch each so here’s one slip stitch here’s
two from there we’re gonna flip our work and then this is just going to be a
bunch of back loop half double crochets so prepare for a half double go into
that first loop with a back loop half double crochet there we go and then go
ahead and keep doing this all the way around you guys are going to go up the
body around the chain down the body and I’ll meet you guys back so that we can
attach it into the base chain and then work our way up to the next row which is
going to be just a little bit different so we’ve just made it down with our row
of back loop half double crochets that went over our little
in section all the way down here and we’re going to attach it into the base
chain and then we’re going to work our way up to the next row together so since
this is our first row of half double crochets we’re going to count out two
loops into our base chain here’s one here’s two slip stitch into that second
loop and then into every other row it’s going to be different so since we just
did a slip stitch or no since we just counted out two we’re actually just
going to be slip stitching up into just one loop into our base and then from
here we’re going to flip our work and then do back loop half doubles going
back the other way and we’re only doing it that way because these are back loop
half doubles instead of doubles or singles it’s like right in between so we
need to combat that weird size so into every what is this since the single
crochet was an odd number into every even number row we’re gonna be going in
with either two slip stitches or counting out to to close off the row so
if that makes sense go ahead and just keep doing that all
the way back and forth making sure that you alternate between two two one slip
stitches once we get into the base and then I’ll meet you guys back once when
we get to these middle portion right here where our stitch marker is so that
we can seam it all up together all right Coolio so we are all the way back around
doing our fold portion which is just a bunch of back loop half double crochets
and we don’t have any more loops left so now we’re actually just going to seam up
the middle portion up until wherever you guys want it to start to curve out so
that’s gonna be completely up to you guys but just let you guys know I insert
my stitch markers about in the sixteenth loop and that is five inches up or
thirteen centimeters and from here we’re just going to sandwich the two pieces
that we have together and single crochet seam all the way up until we get to our
stitch marker so let’s start that off together after I untangle this we’re
going to turn our work insert our hook into our working yarn and then from here
we’re just going to insert our hook into the first available loop that we have
into the front panel and then into the next available loop we have into the
back panel and then we’re going to single crochet
let’s do the next one together into the first available loop that we have into
the front panel and then the next available loop we have into the back
panel single crochet you can go ahead and keep doing this until you guys get
to the point where ever you guys want to stop okay so we have just finished up
seaming up this middle portion that we have right here and we have flipped it
inside out and then once when we have this part we’re going to want to connect
the fold to this back portion that we have and the first thing we’re going to
have to do is figure out where the middle portion is into the back and also
into the fold and the easiest way that I figured out how to do this was just
count at the same time on each size and an insert a stitch marker where it meets
here and then same thing for the back and then once when we have that we’re
going to take a look at the back and then count out ahead and see how ever
many loops we have over here and then once we have that number we’re going to
take the fold sorry we’re going to take the fold and then count out the same
amount of loops insert a stitch marker and then same thing for the other side
and then from here we should have the same amount of loops from the back over
to the fold then once we have that we’re ready to connect it with a slip stitch
row so once when we’re ready we’re going to insert our hook into the corner of
the back portion which is our front panel that we’re going to be talking
about and then insert it into where the stitch marker is where our fold is we’re
gonna grab our yarn make a slipknot insert that loop onto our hook pull
through we’re going to do a chain up of one two secure and then once we have
that we’re going to be inserting our hook and through the first available OOP
we have in the front panel and then the next available loop we have in the back
panel and from here we’re going to yarn over pull through everything on our hook
let’s do the next one together we’re going to go into the next available loop
into the front panel next available loop into the back panel and then slip stitch
on through and we’re just going to keep doing that all the way down until we
don’t have any more loops left to go into we’re gonna do a chain up of one
and cut and then we’ll meet each other back so that we can go in with a little
border along the top and after that little border along the bottom and once
when we have gone all the way across our back slash fold portion with our at slip
stitches we’re actually just going to go all the way around with a row of single
crochet just to clean up the edges just a little bit so I would
I like to do is insert my hook into one of the back loops it doesn’t need to be
exactly the middle but somewhere in the middle just eyeball it insert that there
pull through a chain of one to secure and then from here just put one single
crochet into every loop that we have going all the way down until we are just
one loop away from this little middle portion that we have and then I’ll meet
you guys back so that we can do this little divot together so going in with
our single crochet row that goes on top of our fold
we have stopped one available loop right before we hit this middle seam that we
have right here what is this and now we are going to do a little decrease of
three just to keep this at a point so into this first loop because this is the
loop that’s available this one obviously has the seam in it we’re gonna go into
that loop yarn over pull through and the next we’re actually going to be going
into the seam but there’s not gonna be a real loop for us to go into so we’re
just gonna have to find one insert our hook into there yarn over pull through
and then into the next available loop that we have on the other side as well
and from here we’re gonna yarn over pull through we should have four loops on our
hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all four know how many was that three
and then once when we have that we’re gonna go all the way back around with
single crochets and then slip stitch it into this first single crochet that we
made for ourselves and go ahead and cut and tie now that we have our single
crochet row all seemed up now we’re going to do another row along the bottom
and this is going to be SuperDuper simple all we’re going to do is just
insert our hook into any one of these loops does not matter which one we’re
just gonna make our way across at the row of single crochet cleaning up this
side and just put one into every loop and now that we are done with all that
now we need to start working on the sleeve but right before we get into
working on the sleeve we actually have just a little sleeve started to do and
the way we’re going to start that off is just to make sure that our work is
facing up towards us making sure that we’re looking at it pretty side out and
we’re gonna get started working on the left side first and I’ll show you guys
how to do the right side which is basically going to be the same premise
but since it’s the opposite side you’re gonna have to start it on a
different section but yeah we’ll just get started on the left and then we’ll
move on from there so getting started with the left side first we’re first
going to want to try this on and then we’re going to need to place two stitch
markers down once when it’s on we’re going to get it place a stitch marker in
the front right where the front fold this is going to be weird but right
where the front fold naturally lays on top of our underarm portion and then
whatever loop is directly on top of that we’re going to be inserting our stitch
marker into there and then in the back right where the fold meets the back
portion so it’s going to be a little bit different if you guys take it off and
try to just figure it out from there so I would highly suggest trying it on
because it would fit a lot differently but just to let you guys know this is
what mine looks like yeah I was about to say I can’t find my thing this is what
mine looks like this first loop that’s in the front is where the fold naturally
lays once when I’m wearing it which is directly on top of this first loop that
I have and then I just trace that all the way around and then when I’m wearing
it this stitch marker lays directly over
this back portion that we have right here and then once when we have those
two stitch markers in make sure you guys do the other one as well but once when
we have those two stitch markers in we can go in with our actual work so
getting started on the left side of our work what we’re going to do is actually
take a look at this back portion that we have right here we’re first going to
count up two loops here’s one here’s two we’re going to be inserting our hook
into that second loop from that corner and then we’re going to insert our yarn
onto our hook from here we’re going to do a row of double crochets going all
the way across and so we don’t have any more loops left and then we’re going to
be attaching it into this first stitch marker that we left for ourselves where
we’re measuring where the fold folds naturally and then we’re gonna go in
with a row of single crochets all the way until we hit our next stitch marker
which is right where when we’re wearing it because it’s different when we’re
wearing it right where this meets our back portion and then we’re going to
slip stitch we’re basically just going in with a circle so then that is going
to be the catalyst that helps us go in with our sleeve and it’s gonna be the
same thing on the other side to start it off just a little bit
differently so we’ll do that together as well
but from here we’re just gonna pull this through prepare for a double crochet and
then into that first loop that’s going across this underarm portion go in with
a double crochet and then we’re gonna keep going in with double crochets going
all the way across and so we don’t have any more loops left and then I’ll show
you guys what to do from there all right so we have just gone in with a row of
double crochets going all the way across and now we’re ready to slip stitch into
where our stitch marker is and the row that we’re going to be going into is
actually going to be the second row from the bottom because you guys can see
there’s this ribbing that we can go into which is perfect to go in with our
single crochets so that we can start our sleeves so wherever your stitch marker
is or another way to do it is just to see where the next loop is that lays
naturally next to the hook we’re going to insert our hook into that loop take
out our stitch marker actually it’s this one we’re gonna yarn over and pull
through and then from here we’re going to turn our work I know this is a lot
but we’re going to turn our work upside down so now we’re working into the fold
with single crochets going all the way across until we hit our next stitch
marker which should be when we’re wearing it right next to where our back
portion is so from here we’re just going to be going into each of these loops
with a single crochet until we hit our next stitch marker and then we’re going
to slip stitch it into that same loop that we started off doing our double
crochets in into that back portion I don’t meet you guys back so that we can
do that together okay so we have just got in with a row of single crochets you
guys can kind of see it it’s this right here we attached it into the back loop
so that row of half double crochets that we went into into our fold and now that
we’ve hit our stitch marker we’re just going to be inserting our hook back into
this loop that’s into the side base of our back portion with a slip stitch
we’re going to chain up one and cut so we’re just going to flip this around
really quickly and then into that same loop that our first double crochet is
into I’m going to insert hole through with a slip stitch chain up one and then
cut and then we’re about to do the other side together
so we just did the left side together as you guys can see this is here and now
we’re going to do the right side which is the same sequence but we’re actually
gonna have to start on the opposite side since our work is on the opposite side
so we’re actually going to start working into the underarm portion that is right
next to the front we’re first going to be inserting your hook into that front
going into the underarm portion with double crochets and then single
crocheting around so basically the same thing just in the opposite direction but
once we get here I have inserted my stitch marker into where this loop
naturally would meet this underarm portion so I’m going to insert my hook
into there insert my yarn onto my hook and pull through from here I’m going to
prepare for a double crochet and then go into this first underarm portion loop
with our double crochets we’re first going into this direction first go in
with a double crochet and then put one double crochet into every loop going all
the way across until we hit our back height that we have right here and then
I’ll meet you guys back okay so working into this back portion we have our
double crochets that went all the way across now we’re at the back portion
into the height we’re going to count up those two loops here’s one here’s two
slip stitch into that second loop to close that off and then from here we’re
going to be inserting our hook into where we have our stitch marker for this
other portion that we have right here I notice it’s a little confusing but once
we have this on it all makes sense but we’re going to insert our hook also into
that loop we’re going to yarn over pull through everything like that and now
this portion is all connected we have just formed our sleeve hole but we’re
not quite done yet we’re going to turn our work and we’re going to be going
into this second to last row of our back loop half double crochets into these
loops with single crochets going all the way across until we hit where we first
inserted our hook and it should be the same amount of single crochets that we
had on the other side so go ahead and go all the way around once we reach that
same loop do a slip stitch chain up on a cut and then we can go in with our
sleeves and we have just finished up going in
with our little sleeve starters on both sides I know it’s a little confusing but
y’all are troopers were sticking with us but once when we get here now we can
actually just start going in with the sleeve which is super duper simple so
all that is is just inserting our hook somewhere along the bottom right here
inserting our yarn onto our hook and then making a chain that is as long as
you guys want your sleeve to be I’m gonna go ahead and make a chain of 60
inches and that comes out to about 12 inches or 30 centimeters and for me this
is gonna be a thei quarter length sleeve so go ahead and adjust to whatever you
guys want from there and then I’ll meet you guys back once we have our sleeve or
our chain and now that we have our chain what we’re gonna do from here is just go
up with a row of slip stitches so we’re gonna block off that last chain do a
chain up up one and then into that loop that we blocked off with a second chain
from our hook go in with a slip stitch and then from there go ahead and put one
slip stitch into every loop that we have going all the way up our chain and then
I’ll meet you guys back so that we can slip stitch it into the base and now
that we made our way all the way up with our first row of slip stitches now we’re
just going to slip stitch into the base so all that is is inserting our hook
into that next available loop doing a slip stitch to close off that row and
then to start up the next row we’re going to slip stitch into that next
available loop flip our work and now we’re just going to be doing a bunch of
rows of back loops slip stitches once we make our way back up slip stitch into
the base and then we’re going to be working all around this little single
crochet section that we made for ourselves and it will meet each other
back once when we don’t have any more loops left to go into so that we can see
this all up together we’ve now made it all the way around with our sleeve as
y’all can see we don’t have any more loops left to go into and now the only
thing we have left to do is just go in with a single crochet seam closing
everything up together and the first thing that you guys are going to want to
do is just make sure that your work is flipped inside out so that the seam is
faced on the inside same as the seam that we have in the front but once when
it is flipped inside out we’re going to insert our hook in through both of the
corners and once we have that we’re going to pull through
and then we’re just going to do the first few together into the first
available open to the front panel and then into the next available loop into
the back panel I’m going to insert our hook like that and then single crochet
let’s do just one more together we’re gonna insert our hook into the next we
will open the front and then into the next available loop in the back and then
single crochet go ahead and keep doing this
all the way down once we don’t have any more loops left go ahead and do a chain
up of one and cut and then and do this entire sleeve sequence plus the seam on
the other side and then I’ll meet you guys back okay cool so we have just
finished out doing both of our sleeves and now we can go on with the rest of
the body portion so once we get here we are gonna be switching out our colors
and we’re just going to start off by making a single crochet row sorry I
couldn’t think I’m just going across the bottom of what we already have and we’re
not going to do anything fancy into there so all I’m gonna do is insert my
hook somewhere in the back this is just purely for my own peace of mind but
somewhere in the back pull through chain up one to secure and then just go all
the way around with one single crochet row once when we have made our way all
the way around what we’re gonna do from here is figure out how long we want our
waistband to be and I’ve already measured my now and I want mine to be a
total of three inches or eight centimeters so I’m going to start off by
making a chain of 12 now that we have our chain what we’re gonna do from here
is block off that last chain we’re going to do a chain up of two prepare for a
half double crochet and then into that loop that we blocked off for the third
one from our hook we’re gonna go in with a half double crochet and from here just
put one half double crochet into everything that we have going back down
our chain and then once we hit our base we’ll meet each other back so that we
can slip stitch it into there together now that we made our way all the way
down what we’re gonna do from here is slip stitch it into that second
available loop that we have into the base so we’re going to count up one
count up two into that second yeah into that second we’re gonna do a slip stitch
and now this first row of half two crochet is all closed up and then I know
that in the top portion we went into every other row basically going into
every second every first every second every first loop but we’re not going to
be alternating like that from here we’re just going to be going up with one two
slip stitches flip our work and then do back loop half double crochets and
that’s basically going to be it but we’re going into every two instead of
alternating between one and two because this is the waste portion we do want
this to be able to cinch in just a little bit more than what the top half
is so go ahead and just keep doing that everything should cinch in quite nicely
and then I’ll meet you guys back once when we have this entire section all
finished up and I’ll meet you guys back so that we can seam it together and we
have now made our way all the way back around with our waistband and all we’re
gonna need to do is just sandwich everything together and seam it up so
the only thing that we’re going to need to do in preparation for that is just
make sure that our work is flipped inside out so that all of our seams
including this one and the seam in the middle and then also the seam that we
have for the sleeves is all facing one side so I’m just gonna sandwich mine in
this direction don’t mind me wrestling with my yarn all I’m going to do is
insert my hook in through both corners that I have so here’s one and then
here’s two once we have that we’re gonna pull that through a chain of one to
secure and from here into the next available loop that we have into the
front panel and then into the next available loop we have in the back panel
insert and single crochet same way we’ve done pretty much everything else so far
so go ahead and keep doing this all the way down and then I will meet you guys
back so that we can get started on the dress and now that we have seemed up our
waistband we’re now going to go in along the bottom portion of our waistband with
a row of single crochet just so that it’s easier for us to go into the
bodycon dress portion of this so this is going to be pretty easy once when I went
into the half double crochet we were attaching it into every two loops that
we had along the top so I’m just gonna insert my hook somewhere along the side
into one of these first side half double crochets insert my yarn onto my hook
pull through chain up one two secure now once when we have that we’re going
to be putting two single crochets into each side half doubles so here is the
next well actually it’s going to the same one
into the same one we’re gonna be going in with another single crochet and then
let’s go into the next one together as well this is our next side half double
we’re gonna go in with one and then two and we’re just going to keep putting two
single crochets into every side half double all the way around until we reach
our first single crochet that we made for ourselves we’re going to connect
with a slip stitch and then we’re going to take a look and see where we need to
start working on our dress because it’s going to be worked in two panels a front
and a back so as you guys can see we have just finished up going in with a
row of single crochet along the bottom of our waistband and we have also gone
in with one panel of our skirt portion but once when we have our single crochet
portion along here the skirt portion is going to be fairly simple it’s going to
be made in a front and a back panel and then we’re going to seam them up along
the sides together I just do the front so that you guys can see the general
shape that we’re going for but the first thing we’re gonna have to do is figure
out where our sides are and I have our dad he figured out where mine are cuz my
front panels already finished up you just want to make sure that you guys
have the same amount of loops that you guys have in the front as you guys have
in the back and then from there you’re going to want to figure out the length
of the skirt that you guys want but it is going to be a little bit higher than
the total length of the skirt so you guys get to figure that out from there
but I’ve already went ahead and measured my now I’m just going to go ahead and
insert my hook into this side loop that I have and I’m gonna make a chain of 44
or that comes out to about 10 inches or 25 centimeters now that we have our
chain what we’re gonna do from here is block off that last chain do a chain up
of one and then go into that loop that we blocked off or the second chain from
our hook with a slip stitch and then from here go ahead and just put one slip
stitch into every loop that we have going back down our chain once we reach
our chain we’ll meet each other back so that we can connect into the base just
like how we’ve been doing and then we are going to do some increases along the
edges so I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do those as well
so we have just gone in with our first row of slip stitches and right before we
get connected we’re going to talk about this piece just a little bit so as you
guys can see this is the general shape that we’re
going for because we are gonna have these little arcs along the side that
connects the front to the back so in order to do that you’re going to want to
figure out where you guys want your blunt portion to be which is this one
right here and I just figured out where my middle point was and then I counted
out as thick as I wanted it to be and I have inserted my stitch markers and then
also when it comes to doing the increases or decreases depending on what
side you’re going into we are going to be doing our regular increases of just
one into every other row but we need it to curve a little bit more instead of
just going in straight out of V so in order to get that arc we’re actually
going to be doing a couple rows of our regular increases of one but then also
we’re also going to have a couple rows of increases of two so that is going to
be all up to you guys and however you guys want to space that out but all I’m
going to be doing is doing an increase of one into every other row which I will
be showing you guys and then also into every fifth row I will be doing our
increase of two which is this little chunk that you guys can see right here
which extends out just a little bit further so that’s just my sequence you
guys can figure that out whatever you guys want to do and then also just make
sure that when you guys are going up with your increases that you guys don’t
extend past this middle portion because we do need to have this middle chunky as
well but once when you guys have figured yours out go ahead and insert your
stitch markers and then we can get started with the rest of this piece so
now that we are back with our first row of slip stitches all we’re gonna do is
insert our hook into this next available loop to close off this row and then to
go into the next row we’re going to slip stitch into the next available loop
we’re going to flip our work and then we’re going to be working all the way
down with back loop slip stitches and then we are going to be doing an
increase every time we get to the end so when we’re working our way out towards
the bottom we’re going to be doing an increase and that depends if we’re doing
an increase of one or two and I will show you guys how to do both so go ahead
and just keep working your way all the way down and then I’ll meet you guys
back so that we can do the increase together now that we’ve made our way all
the way down to the end we’re going to do an increase of one so how we do that
is actually the same way that we did the top portion
we’re going to be going in with a chain out of to flip out of work flip our work
and then insert our hook in through the second loop that we have from our hook
with a back loop slip stitch and from here go all the way down with back loop
slip stitches once we get to the base go ahead and connect it into the base just
like how we’ve been doing and then keep going back and forth until you guys are
ready to do your increase of two like I said for me it’s going to be my fifth
row so I’ll meet you guys back once when I reach my fifth so we are back and I
have made it all the way over to where I’m going to be doing my increase of two
which is my sixth row and all we’re going to do is basically the same way
that we’ve been doing our increases of one but instead of just doing a chain
out of two which is what we’ve been doing we’re going to do a chain out of
three and then once we go in we’re gonna skip that loop that’s closest to the
hook do a back loop slip stitch into the second back loop slip stitch into the
third and then also into the body of what we’re doing so let’s do the first
bit together we’re gonna insert our hook into that second back loop from the hook
with a slip stitch into that third back loop from the hook slip stitch and from
here just go all the way down with back loop slip stitches connecting into the
base just like how we’ve been doing and then once when you work your way back up
depending on your pattern you guys can be doing an increase of one or an
increase of two but like I said I’m gonna be doing my increases of two in
increments of five and then I’m going to stop once when I get to this next stitch
marker so that we can do this longer portion in the middle and then we’re
going to do our decreases so go ahead and keep your increases all the way
until you’re ready to do this longer chunk right here and then I’ll meet you
guys back we now have our increased section on one side of our skirt and we
have made our way to the middle ish and now we’re about to do this little
extender portion that we have right here so you guys can go ahead and figure out
how long you want the dress in total to be and from this point down to where I’m
going to stop I’m going to make a chain of 20 and that comes out to about five
inches or 13 centimeters and then from there we’re just gonna do a chain up of
one flip our work and then work all the way back down with back loop slip
stitches and this part’s gonna be blunt so nothing fancy is gonna go into here
and one said you guys have reached your
other stitch marker so that you guys aren’t going to do this portion anymore
I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do our decreases together so we are back
and we now have this middle extender portion and now we’re going to start
working on the decrease which is basically the same part that we had over
here with our increase so wherever you guys had your increases of two we’re
going to be doing a decrease of three and then wherever you guys had an
increase of one we’re going to be doing a decrease of two so we’re going to be
doing one of each together and then you guys can apply it to whatever pattern
you guys have when it comes to your increase section we’re first going to be
starting off with our decrease of three so once we have this we have made our
way all the way up to this last point that I had on the other side we’re going
to do a chain up of one and flip our work once we have that we’re going to be
going into the next three back loops with a decrease so I’m going to insert
our hook into that first back loop yarn over pull through second back loop yarn
over pull through we should have three loops on our hook and then third back
loop yarn over and since these are slip stitches we’re just going to yarn over
and pull through one two three and four all at the same time and that’s what we
do once when we have our decrease of three or four looking at the other side
that is our increase of two and then go ahead and work all the way down putting
one back loop slip stitch into every row connecting to the base just like usual
once we work our way back up and then we are on our way to working back down
we’ll do a decrease of two which is a regular decrease and then we will
continue on from there so we just made our way all the way back up and we are
on our decrease section and we’re just going to do a decrease of two together
and that decrease of two is equivalent to our increase of one on our increase
side so you guys go ahead and match it up from there and also just keep in mind
that we are only decreasing in two every other row because that’s how we did our
increases as well that’s just a reminder but once when we get here how we’re
going to do a decrease of one is we’re going to do a chain up of one flip our
work and then into this first available back loop insert your hook yarn over
pull through into this next available back loop we’re going to yarn over not
split the yarn yarn over pull through all three loops that’s on our
and that is our decrease of two on this side so go ahead and just continue on
with whatever pattern you guys have with your increases and decreases once when
you guys reach your side portion go ahead and cut and tie and then do your
other side which I already have done and then we’ll meet each other back to seam
it up and then we just have a little bit more of our detail left to go into into
the skirt and we are all back with doing both our front and our back panel when
it comes to the skirt portion and the next thing that we’re gonna have to do
is just seam up the sides I have already seamed up one side so we’re gonna be
doing the next together the first thing you’re going to want to do though is
flip your work inside out so that all of your seams are facing the same direction
then once when you guys have that and it’s going to be done the same exact way
so you’re just going to be doing the first few together we’re gonna insert
our hook into any one of these loops making sure we’re going in through the
front panel in the back panel at the same time insert our yarn onto our hook
pull through a chain of one to secure and then once we have that we’re just
going to make sure we go into the same loops into the front and the back at the
same time so into this next available loop we have in the front panel insert
your hook and then into the next available loop we have in the back panel
insert your hook and then single crochet and keep doing that all the way down
until you guys don’t have any more loops left once when you guys hit the end go
ahead and cut and tie and then do it to the other side and now that we have
seemed up both of our sides the next thing that we can do is actually go in
with a little side detail that we have right here so this part is actually
going to be pretty simple what we’re gonna do is we’re actually gonna leave
this faced wrong side out so that we can seam it in together easier but we’re
just gonna insert our hook in through one of the corner loops and from here
we’re just gonna go up and around with the row of single crochet to start this
off but go ahead and do this and then I’ll meet you guys once when we get to
this middle point because we are going to be putting a single crochet into this
seam that we have right here and then also once when we get to this little
increase slash decrease portion right here or we’re gonna want to do one so we
get here is just put one single crochet into each of
these side slip stitch rows so for example from here to here I have a total
of 18 rows so I’m going to want to have 18 single crochets into this section and
then other than that go ahead and just keep going all the way up until we meet
our seam now that we made our way all the way down to the scene we’re just
gonna be putting one single crochet into this last seam that we have right here
so we’re gonna insert into there I know it’s gonna feel a little weird because
it’s not faced up right but from here just single oh let’s try that again from
here single crochet and then work your way all the way back down with single
crochets we’ve now made it all the way to the end of our first row of single
crochets when it comes to our side detail and what we’re gonna do from here
is just a bunch of rows of back loops slip stitches but once when we get down
to this middle loop that we made for ourselves are going to be doing a
decrease of 3 so just to start off this row together we’re gonna insert our hook
and do this first available back loop with a slip stitch go ahead and keep
doing this all the way down until we reach the loop that is right before this
middle loop that we left for ourselves with that same loop and then I’ll meet
you guys back so that we can do our decrease of 3 together we made our way
all the way down to this middle side seam that we have and we have the loop
right before it the loop that we went into that seam with and then the 1 right
after we’re going to be going in with a decrease of 3 so into this first
available we’re going to insert yarn over pull through into that middle seam
loop insert pull through and then the 1 right after that yarn over pull through
all four loops on our hook and then that is our decrease of 3 that we’re going to
do into every row once when we meet this inside seam right here but for the rest
of this go ahead and just put back loop slip stitches going all the way up once
we make it to the end chain up one flip our work and then go back down with back
loop slip stitches remembering to do our decrease of 3 in the middle and then
we’re just going to keep doing that until we get a length that is wide
enough to help us fit this dress over ourselves and then once when you guys
have that we’re going to meet each other back so that we can seam it all up
together so we are back and we have just finished up going in with our
ARC that we have right here and now we’re just going to seam it up together
the only thing that we need to make sure before we go into this is that our dress
is still faced wrong side out so that all of our seams are facing the same
direction but once we have this all we’re going to do is insert our hook
into the front panels corner loop and then also into the back panels corner
loop insert our yarn pull through and then chain up one two secure and from
here we’re just going to go in with a row of single crochet sandwiching both
the front in the back panel together so let’s insert our hook into this first
available loop in the front panel and then into this next available we have in
the back panel and then single crochet so the same way we’ve been seaming up
everything so far go ahead and go all the way down until you guys don’t have
any more loops left to go into once when you reach that point do a chain up of
one end cut and then you’re going to do this entire thing on the other side and
now that we’re done with our side details the last thing we have to do is
weave in all of our ends now that we’ve woven in our ends this is our finished
