Sun dress

robe de soleil Name inspired by Peau d’âne tale… Started with a ch 24 for a 8yo child (sleeve = 2 motives, back = 4 motives, total = 8).
I underestimated the amount of yarn I needed (I did the last rows of the upper body doing 8 DC instead of 9, I wish I had this idea before, I might have been able to make this part longer : V-neck = 5 shell rows, upper body = 3 shell rows). I’m now doing the skirt in Victoria (miel… don’t blame me for the choice, she made me by it for her). I striped the belt with the two yarns to make for a smoother transition. At first I tought the 3mm hook was too tiny for this yarn, but then the first three rows were ok, but still I chose to shift to a 4.5mm for the following rows. I only do one yo by DC, the second is a yu (yarn under) and the last ones are slide-behind-yarn-grab-and-slide-though-loop, to prevent the ribbon from twisting too much.

No more Victoria miel left, the skirt barely reaches her behind. WIll have to buy more! I crocheted the skirt in the round from row 5-ish because this ribbon yarn has a wrong side, and, I will need fewer buttons.

I decided on a tunic, so it’s finished! She wanted heart-shaped buttons and she has them, the border does add a polish and professional look.

They are here!

They arrived both at the same time! Plenty of nice things to admire and crochet …

I finished my giant snowflake.

flocon 3

I can’t say I’m satisfied with it…
The ones I did for my sister and my sister in law are far prettier!

I did the last row with a 9mm hook in hope it would fluff up, but this yarn feels like paper, a very bad yarn choice and a gauge that is way off. Makes a decent shawl, though, and even a cute table cloth, but it is not as pretty as I expected.

I should have used Maribel by Zettl!

  • Crocheted!

  • Is it knitted? Nope! Crocheted! Crochet isn't just for grannies, doilies and floppy funky scarves. I am - fairly - under 50, I have a crochet hook and a yarn ball handy in my purse and I like decorating my shoulders better than my sofa.
