Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hello everyone! I’m so happy to sharing with you this cute crochet baby dress free pattern. I made it with two colors, but it’s up to you. You can do this dress in any size you want. In this pattern I made for size 6-9 months. You can get the PDF on Etsy Here. Let’s start.
Skill level: Easy/Medium
Sizes: 6-9 months. Head circumference = 43 cm, shoulder Length = 9/8 cm, armhole depth = 9/10 cm, chest circumference = 43 cm, dress length = 38 cm.
Materials / Supplies:
You will need :
Stitches:
  • ch– chain
  • st/sts-stitch/stitches
  • sl st-slip stitch (Insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull through both the stitch and loop on the hook).
  • sc-single crochet (Insert hook into stitch. Yarn over pull through two loops).
  • dc-double crochet (Yarn over. Insert hook into stitch. Yarn over pull through stitch. Yarn over pull through two loops. Yarn over pull through two loops).
  • lacy shell stitch (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the same stitch ( ch space).
Pattern Notes:

-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 an 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.

Pattern:

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 for bigger size, just repeat rounds 2 and 3 until you reach the right length of the shoulder.

Now we will divide the thing into 2 armhole, 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 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 less rounds depend of 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.

Finishing:

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.

  1. What do ch 3 + ch 1 space mean? Do that mean I ch 4?

    1. Hello Donna!
      Yes I mean Ch 4.
      I hope you’ll be able to crochet it.
      Happy crocheting ))

  2. How do I get a free newborn pattern or what size hook you use?

    1. Hello Vicki Barfus!
      I explained in the pattern how to make it in any size!
      You can look at the chart
      Make chains (Multiple of 2 ch) = head circumference (For newborn 34 cm). Then follow the pattern. Make rounds until you get the size of the shoulder (6.5 cm). Then follow the pattern.
      You will divide the circle into 2 armholes, chest, and the back (you divide the number of holes on 4).
      Then you will make rounds until you get the right length for the dress.
      For the hook I use the same hook size 3.50 mm.

      If you need any pattern help please send me comment, I am always happy to help )
      I hope you will understand and be able to do this beautiful dress easily.

      Thanks a lot!
      Happy crocheting!
