Crocheting a Baby Dress

A baby dress can be fairly simple to make when using a pattern like the ones listed on this Hub.

Use good quality lightweight 3-ply baby sports weight yarn in a color of your choice. Soft baby yarn in your favorite color and style is easy to find. Sizes for dresses vary for baby but most range from 6 months and on up to 12-18 months.

Many patterns include infant and toddler sizes for crocheting a dress. It all depends on the yarn and the size of the crochet hook you are using. If a crocheter is good at adjusting a pattern it can be an easy process to increase or decrease the size of a dress in an existing pattern.

If you can read and understand simple crochet instructions you more than likely can do double crochet which is typically the stitch required on most baby dresses. There are detailed directions for the beginner crochet who has acquired good common knowledge of crocheting techniques and terminology and work from pattern directions. Most are written in standard American terminology and abbreviations.

If crocheting a dress for a gift be sure to include washing and care instructions for the parent.

There are many different patterns for baby from Christening gowns, layettes, afghans, booties, toys and gift ideas that a crocheter will never get bored with the endless ideas available.
