Little Puppy Blue Dress



 

Hello friends, I love C2C crochet, since it is easy to work, though using many colors could be troublesome, because I am too messy, and my yarns always get tangled up together, sometimes I spend hours getting them apart. And because I also love pixel art drawings, I save a lot of cute pictures of them on my Pinterest boards and on my PC.  So, I thought one day, why not merge a C2C piece into one of the dresses I make on my blog. And here comes the IDEA and the Puppy Dress.

I found this pixel art on Pinterest, but I couldn't find the original designer to give them credit. 

To make this dress you must know how to use a sewing machine.

Level: intermediate



   

   Materials

  •        Yarn; Alize Diva silk effect, 100% microfiber acrylic, 100 g. / 350 mt. (3.5 0z. /383 yds), one skein of colors; cornflower 132, cream 01. Few meters of red 106, grey 355, and black 60.

Front C2C Square:


Note: The C2C square is crocheted with cornflower yarn, its edging with cream yarn.
For the largest size (6 year), for the smaller two other sizes, cut one square border for the 5 year size, and 2 square border for size 4 year. (Follow the pattern)
When the C2C square is finished, it should measure 17X17 cm2 (19X19 cm2, 21X21 cm2).
Edging: follow the pattern I’ve drawn.








Back Square:


With cornflower color make a magic ring.
Round 1: ch 2 (don’t count as st), dc, *ch 1, 2 dc, repeat from * two more times, ch 1, dc, sl st to second ch of first ch2.
Round 2: ch 2 (counts as one dc from here on), *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the next ch 1 space, 2 dc. Repeat from * two more times, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the next ch 1 space, dc, sl st to second ch of first ch 2.
Round 3: ch 2, 2dc, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the next 2 ch space, dc in each 6 sts. Repeat two more times, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the next 2 ch space, 3 dc, sl st to second ch of first ch 2.
