Pattern Instructions:

Part 1: Body Panel

  1. Foundation Row: Start with Tan yarn. Chain (Ch) a number based on your chest measurement from bra strap to bra strap multiplied by 3, then add 2 or 3 for an odd number.
  2. Row 1: Single crochet (Sc) in the 2nd chain from the hook and each stitch (St) across. Chain 1, turn.
  3. Row 2 onward: Continue with Half Double Crochet (Hdc) each stitch across, then Alpine Stitch variations including 5Hdc (Shell Stitch) for design texture. Refer to specific row instructions for increasing or maintaining rows for body shaping.

Note: For bust to waist, maintain the same number of stitches; for the hips, increase as needed then maintain the same number of stitches after the hips down to the dress’s end.

  • For increasing: Hdc, FpDc, Hdc pattern until the last stitch followed by 2Hdc in the last stitch.
  • Repeat Alpine Stitch rows as specified in the pattern for the desired bust width, knitting in color changes between Tan and White yarns as desired.

Part 2: Joining Panels

After completing two identical panels for the front and back:

  1. Place both panels with the wrong sides out.
  2. Single Crochet (Sc) each stitch across the sides to join them, stopping where the increase ends.

Part 3: Straps

Finishing Steps:
