About the name, “Pink Baby Dress”, I really think I could have put more energy to find a unique name, but when I look at it, I find it to be the perfect name, what do ya think? Well, I may change it later, maybe, but don’t let this simple name fool you, it’s a super cute baby dress.
Now, it’s your turn to crochet one (or perhaps two, three or more) for your sweetie, and also make some awesome gifts to your family and friends and spread the love.
The free crochet pattern below is for the baby dress, but while I was crocheting this simple yet beautiful baby dress, I decided to complete this project and design a complete set.
I really love this set! Please leave a comment on the blog when you are done reading/crocheting. I love to see your beautiful finished items!
And if you’d like to download the patterns and print the complete pink baby dress set instead of reading on the blog, you can get the ad-free, printable PDF on Etsy Here.
As you may already know, I like cute, quick and easy projects. The fact is that I’m still at school, I have a lot of homework and many other things to do. I can crochet a cute baby girl dress like this one in one day. As for the baby booties and the hat, they both work up in just two hours.
As you can see, the pink baby dress is a cute but simple project. I used the SC / DC / Shell stitches, and that makes it a perfect match for you if you are a beginner. You’ll be able to crochet it during the weekend, impress people with your finished dress, and even sell a couple of those at craft fairs!
Isn’t it pure awesomeness?

- lacy shell stitch (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the same stitch ( ch space).
-In (2, 3 )rounds always begin your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.
-If the number is written before the stitch 2 hdc work 2hdc into the same stitch. If the number is written after the stitch hdc 2 work hdc into next 2 stitches.
-Repeat what is written in the () as many times as it’s written right after the (). For example: Repeat (2hdc, hdc1) 5 times. It means that you have to repeat the sequence work 2 hdc sts into the same st. 1 hdc into the next one 5 times. And you will get 5 additional stitches by doing that.
-At the end of each round/row please count how many sts do you have at the end of that round/row.

Here’s a Size Chart to crochet the pink baby dress in any size:
Pink Crochet Baby Dress:
Now we will make chains (Multiple of 2 ch) = head circumference (43 cm). I made ch 60, sl st in the last st from the hook.
Round 1: Ch 3 (count as a stitch), dc in each ch, sl st in the 3rd ch.(60) sts.
Round 2: ch 3 + ch 1 as a space, skip one st, dc in next, now repeat ( ch1, skip one st, dc in next) around, sl st in the 3rd ch. (60) sts.
Round 3: ch 3, 2 dc in the next ch space, dc in next st, now repeat ( 2 dc in the ch space, dc in the next dc st) around, sl st.
Round 4: ch 3 + ch 1 as a space, skip one st, dc in next, now repeat ( ch1, skip one st, dc in next) around, sl st in the 3rd ch.
Round 5: ch 3, 2 dc in the next ch space, dc in next st, now repeat ( 2 dc in the ch space, dc in the next dc st) around, sl st.
Round 6: ch 3 + ch 1 as a space, skip one st, dc in next, now repeat ( ch1, skip one st, dc in next) around, sl st in the 3rd ch.
Round 7: ch 3, 2 sc in the next ch space, sc in next st, now repeat ( 2 sc in the ch space, sc in the next dc st) around, sl st. (67) spaces.
In round 7 I did sc instead of dc so it fits shoulder length (9/8) cm. But If you want a bigger size, just repeat rounds 2 and 3 until you reach the right length of the shoulder.
Now, we will divide the circle into 2 armholes, chest and back. Count 16 holes and place a marker, count 17 holes and place a marker, count 17 holes and place a marker, now you have the last 17 holes.
Round 8: (the back) Now make sc on each st until you reach the marker, (the armhole) make ch 3, and skip 17 holes, then make sc in the marker space, (the chest) sc on each st until you reach the marker, (the armhole) make ch 3, and skip 17 holes, then make sc in the marker space, and sl st.
Round 9: sl st in the 3 chains under the armhole, ch 3, shell stitch (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the armhole, skip one st, dc in next, skip one st, shell stitch in next st, now repeat (skip 1 st, dc in next, skip 1 st, shell stitch in next) around, sl st in the 3rd ch. (26) shells.
Rounds 10-27: ch 3, shell stitch in the next shell space, dc in the next dc st, now repeat (work 1 shell st in each shell st, 1 dc in each dc), sl sl to join.(26) shells. 38 cm. You can make more or fewer rounds, it depends on the desired length.
Round 28: ch 1, sc in the same st, 6 dc in the shell space, sc in the next dc st, now repeat (6 dc in each shell st, sc in each dc) around, sl st to join.(26) shells. Fasten off.
The armhole: Insert the hook under the arm, then pull the yarn, and ch 1, make 4 dc in the next st, skip 2 sts, and make 4 dc in next, repeat around.(9) shells.
The neck: insert the hook in any st, and ch 1, sc in the same st, sc in each st, sl st to join.(60) sts. Fasten off.
