Introducing the Little Sweetie Dress. Due to extreme demand from our audience, many have asked for this dress to have more draping or pleats at the bottom instead of just being straight down. I have taken the liberty to change 1 line in the pattern which alters the skirt area. It makes the skirt 3 times more stitches on one layer. Once you complete the line, the rest of the pattern can easily followed.
Just be forewarned that you will use 3 times the amount of yarn to complete the skirt area.
This is what the pattern says at the Skirt Area:
Round 2 (Right Side): Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1 here and throughout), dc in first st (beginning V-st made), skip next dc, *V-st in next dc, skip next dc; repeat from * around; join with slip st in 3rd ch of beginning ch—35 (37, 41, 43) V-sts.
Change it to this to get the pleats:
Round 2 (Right Side): Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1 here and throughout), dc in first st (beginning V-st made), *V-st twice in the next st, V-st in next dc, repeat from * around; join with slip st in 3rd ch of beginning ch V-sts.
This change will cause the v-stitches to multiple 3 times. When moving up into the next round. You will operate in the v-stitches as it states. The only change from hereon in is that the number of v-stitches around has been changed. You will not add any extra stitches and operate the pattern as normal. This will not affect the length of your skirt.
Thanks for visiting my website, TheCrochetCrowd.com. I've been crocheting since I was 14 years old and genuinely excited by yarn and projects to crochet. Serving the globe has it's challenges in reaching audiences of difference languages and cultures but it's remarkable all the same. One of the best elements of crochet is that yarn and project ideas know no borders.
