Do not cut the last back, you will turn. Now we will be working in rounds. Rounds is where the back is connected so we are working in one big circle. The sections will be joined by the first single crochet on the underarm area.

Round 14: Work 1 SC across Top Back in each of the 15 single crochet, Work 1 SC across Top Front in each of the 30 single crochet, 2nd Top Back work 1 SC in each of the 15 single crochet. Join with the first stitch. (60 single crochet total)
Round 15: Chain 1, Work 1 SC in each stitch around. Join. (60 single crochet total)

Round 16: Work a chain 4. Work 3 DC below the two loops at the base of the stitch, skip a stitch, *work a SC in the next stitch, chain 4, work 3 DC through the top of the SC. Continue around from *. When you get around to the beginning, work a slip stitch to join with the first stitch. Turn, work a slip stitch across the DC to the chain 4 space.

There will be a total of 30 stitches, which is the combination. This part is flexible so you can work more stitches if you want more of a full skirt.

Round 17- 27: Work a CH 1, SC in the chain 4 space. *Chain 4 work 3 DC through the top of the SC, SC in the next CH 4 space, continue around from *. When you get around to the beginning, work a slip stitch to join with the first stitch. Turn, work a slip stitch across the DC to the chain 4 space.


You can continue with the length for a longer dress. Wrap the yarn over, pull through, cut the yarn, give it a tug to secure.

Strap - Make 2
On the right side, attach the yarn on the edge. On the left side, you will attach the yarn, 6 stitches from the left.

Row 1-17: Work 1 SC in each of the next 6 stitches, turn. Upon completing, cut an extra length. You will sew the stitches to the back side, matching the 6 stitches.

Button Loop - Chain 11, join. Work 1 Slip Stitch in each chain around. You will sew this to the left side. The size can easily be modified for different size buttons.
