Crochet Blue Dress with Relief Skirt
12 skeins of blue (96% cotton, 4% polyamide; 106m/50g);
Crochet hook 5 or 5,5.
Pattern A: work due to the scheme A (the quantity of sts is multiple 3 + 2). Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows. Repeat the pattern between arrows.
Pattern B: due to the scheme B (the quantity of sts is multiple 9). Make 1st-12th rows x once, then, repeat 5th-12th rows. Repeat the pattern between arrows.
Stitches control: pattern A: 16 sts x 7 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
1 pattern repeat B = 9 cm (wide) x 6 rows = 10 cm.
Back of Bra
Make 71 chain sts and work with pattern A. In 19 cm, leave 6 sts open from both sides for arm-holes. Then, decrease 1 x 2 sts and 1 x 1 st in every 2nd row from both sides. When the length of the detail is 35 cm, leave the central 17 pattern repeats open for neck-hole = 23 cm and finish both sides separately. In 37 cm from the set-up row, back is finished.
Front of Bra
Make in the same way, as back, but with deeper neck-hole. For this, at 29 cm height, leave the central 7 pattern repeats open and finish both sides separately. In 8 cm from the beginning of neck-hole, front is finished.
Back of Skirt
Make 72 single crochets along the lower edge of back = 1st row, stated on the scheme B. Continue work due to the scheme B. Starting from the 8th row, increase sts from both sides in every row until there is 1 pattern repeat increased from each side. When the length of the detail is about 63 cm, finish your work.
Front of Skirt
Make in the same way, as back of skirt.
Make shoulder and side seams. Fasten neck-hole and arm-holes with 1 row of single crochets.
