Crochet Baby Dress - Solomon's Knot



Crochet Baby Dress - Solomon's Knot

Size F Crochet Hook

Baby Weight or 3-Ply Yarn

Chest Measurement: 18" around

There are a couple of ways to make the dress larger or smaller.
1. You can change the hook size to an E or G.
2. You can add a couple more stitches to the under arm of the yoke. You could use 6 or 7 chains or chainless foundations stitch if you wanted to make the chest larger.

The chain can be used instead of the chainless foundation.
