Crochet dress – “Noemia”

Crochet dress from Brazilian designer Katia Portes

For the dress, 500g of Turkish yarn Sarmasik 200m/50g was required:

  • cotton 60%
  • acrylic 20%
  • viscose 20%

Clover hooks No. 2.25 – 2.5 – 2.75 – 3.00 mm.

First, we knit samples of patterns and floral motifs.

We crochet the floral motif No. 2.75 according to the patterns:

We knit three rows according to pattern 1. This is what we get:

Next we move on to diagram 2.

Using connecting columns we reach the third DC in our last row.

We make 5 VP, sc in dc of the 1st row (from diagram 1).

Further according to the pattern: 4 VP, RLS in the 3rd SSN of the 3rd row (from pattern 1), 4 VP, RLS in the 1st SSN row (from pattern 1), etc.

VP lifting, 6 sc for the first arc from VP.

VP lifting, 5 VP, SSN for air loops in the 3rd row (from diagram 1).

5 VP, sc at the top of our petal.

Next, we use connecting posts to the middle of the arch from VP, make a VP lift, 2 VPs and knit a trefoil from picot.

Triple picot:

Having tied to the desired place, cast on 3 VPs and close them into a ring with a connecting loop. Then dial the second group of 3 VPs, also close it in a ring. Third, last time, dial 3 VPs, close them in a ring. The result is a group of three “picots” in a row, which should be secured by knitting a connecting post, thereby forming a trefoil.

For the dress we knit the following stripes of floral motifs:

  • for cap sleeves – 2x3=6 motifs
  • for a single strip of motifs – 10 motifs
  • for the hem strip – 2x14=28 motifs

The motifs are connected to each other while knitting the last row.

 We start knitting the dress from the waist. We knit the initial row like this: *4VP, DC in the first loop of the chain*, etc. The initial row can also be knitted with an elastic set of loops.

We knit the dress downwards in a tight pattern according to pattern 3:

We start crocheting number 2.25 and change it to a larger number every 6 rows. We knit the last rows of the dense pattern with crochet number 3.0mm.

The length of the skirt knitted with a pattern according to pattern 3 is 50 cm.

Next, we switch to an openwork pattern according to pattern 4. Only instead of 3DC we knit 2DC. We monitor the number of repeats - for one floral motif there are 3 repeats of an openwork pattern. Stripe of floral motifs – 10 motifs = 30 repeats.

You can immediately knit a frill along the last row of pattern 2.

The openwork stripes connecting the stripes of floral motifs depend on the length of the skirt. We calculate the remaining length, without the dense part and stripes of motifs, and divide in half.

In the last row of the first openwork part we tie up a strip of single motifs. Clinging to the pico sl st and dc.

Next we knit the second openwork strip. We increase the number of repeats by expanding the canvas to connect with a double stripe of floral motifs. Wide stripe of floral motifs – 14 motifs = 42 repeats of openwork pattern. This means you need to get 12 repeats of the openwork pattern.

Also in the last row we tie a hem strip made of floral motifs. The skirt is ready.

We knit the bodice of the dress with an openwork pattern according to the pattern 4 - 8 cm. We begin crocheting No. 2.5 - openwork pattern. Next, we switch to dense pattern 3 and change the hook to a larger size No. 2.75 - 3.0mm.

We knit to the armhole and divide the knitting into front and back. On the sides we leave 3-4 cm for the armhole. Then straight to the shoulder line. We connect the shoulder seams. The neckline is boat-shaped, the openwork is elastic and does not require additional processing.

We tie the sleeves - wings into the armholes.

And we finish the job with a mini frill on the bodice of the dress.
