Skill level Intermediate

Finished size toddler – 1-2 yrs old girls

  • Chest = 20”
  • Armhole depth = 4.5”
  • Length of the dress from shoulder to bottom = 12”
  • Length of the shoulder strip = 3”

Materials (I used)

Gauge

  • 20 dc x 8 rows = 4” with 4mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • ch-(stitch count) sp = chain-(number of chains) spaces
  • sk = skip
  • beg = beginning
  • RS = Right Side
  • *to* = repeat * to * the instructions.

Special stitch:

beg hdc2tog = yo, insert the hook first st, yo, pull back through st, yo, insert the hook next st, yo, pull back through (5 loops on the hook) yo, pull back through the all loops on the hook.

hdc2tog = [yo, insert the hook next st, yo, pull back through st] 2 times, (5 loops on the hook) yo, pull back through the all loops on the hook.

Note: the tank top is worked bottom up. beg ch(s) does not count as st. Adjust the length of the tank top by adding more rows to the body part. Increase or decrease chains count of the shoulder strap to fit with your measurements of the toddler’s shoulder.

Simple mini bow

Note: Start to crochet with matching color for tank top by leaving 3-4 inches of the beginning end of the yarn. All the dc sts and ch 3 in this bow worked in on one ch. So carry up the beginning yarn end around that first ch so it will cover up when crocheting bow and make one tail. see the photo tutorial below.
