Schemes of children's crocheted sundresses can be so diverse that even the most experienced knitters take their breath away from the number of options.

## Choice of model and pattern

There are models so simple that even beginners can do them. They usually include one or two patterns, as well as rectangular details. For work, only the simplest calculations on the control sample are needed.

For craftswomen who have a certain skill, it is possible to crochet more complex children's sundresses. It is not easy to cope with diagrams and descriptions of such models: an ornament can consist of several patterns or separately related motifs. As for the details of such sundresses, a pattern or drawing may be required for their manufacture. Calculations on paper alone are not enough.

## Crochet pink children's sundress: diagrams and descriptions

This model is suitable for knitters who have just learned how to perform basic techniques: single crochet (STBN) and double crochet (StSN).

This cute crochet baby sundress (see diagrams and descriptions below) is knitted from the bottom up. Under marking A.1 is the scheme of the main pattern:

- One row (P) is knitted StSN.
- The next two Rs are completed by StTBN.

Next, the sequence is repeated from the first to the third row.

The border, which runs along the bottom of the product and is clearly visible in the pattern drawing, is performed after the completion of the main work. This openwork pattern is shown in the diagram under the marking A.2.

## Working order

First, you should perform a control sample to find out the density of your canvas. Then you can start crocheting a children's sundress. Diagrams and descriptions allow you to create a product for children from three to twelve years old, you need to focus on the sizes indicated on the pattern.

Main steps:

- Production of the front part. The number of StCH calculated in advance is carried out and knitted according to scheme A.1 to the armhole level. If you need a silhouette extended downwards, then as you knit, you should evenly shorten the columns at the beginning and at the end of R.
- To form armholes, symmetrical bevels should be made on both sides of the fabric. To make the line come out smoothly, do not immediately tie 8-10 columns on each side, and then cut four times in every second R, one column each.
- Next, the fabric is knitted evenly.
- To form a neckline in the center of the row, such a number of columns are left untied, which corresponds to 15-16 cm. Then, on each side, cutone column in every second R until the neck is 17-18 cm wide.
- The remaining canvases (shoulders) are performed in turn: for example, first the left, then the right.

The back is knitted in the same way. The details of this model have the same contours.

## Performing tying

After the back and front details are sewn, you can start tying the bottom of the product. For this, the bottom of the sundress is treated with StBN. In this case, the direction of knitting will be opposite to that which was used in the manufacture of the main parts. If the back and front are connected from bottom to top, then the border is made from top to bottom.

Crocheting children's sundresses is so convenient that you can change the direction of work at your discretion. If necessary, the number of strapping repeats can be increased, then the product will be longer.

## Red sundress with yoke

This model differs from the previous one in that it runs in a circle. Such a children's crochet sundress (diagrams and descriptions are attached) consists of two parts: a yoke and a skirt.

The first is done by STSN, the second is knitted with an openwork pattern.

The first row is the neck line. The designer who developed the model suggests making a slit on the back for the clasp. This is not a required element, you can close the first row in a ring and knit a yoke in a circle.

If the craftswoman decided to knit as shown in the drawing, she will have to work with direct and returnrows.

Coquette expansion:

- The addition of new elements occurs in four places. For this, craftswomen mark four Sts with markers. In every second row, you should double the StCH before the marked element and after. As a result, each row will expand by eight sts.
- The yoke is ready when the armhole of the desired depth is formed. Further, all StSN that fall on the details of the front and back are closed in a circular row, and several rows of StBN are performed.
- Then you need to move on to making an openwork pattern. To do this, follow the algorithm: five air loops (VP), skip three StBn bases and tie StBN in the fourth. The sequence is repeated the required number of times until the end of the row.
- In the next R, three StSNs, one VP, three StSNs are performed in each arch. Repeat this R until the skirt is one-third tied.
- The second third of the skirt will be wider than the first: four sts, one ch, four sts are knitted into each VP of the previous row.
- The last part of the skirt should be the widest: in each VP of the previous row, five StSN, one VP, five StSN are knitted.

## Sundress decoration

The neck of the finished product is tied with several rows of StBn. Armholes should be finished as follows:

- One row Stbn.
- VP, skip two loops of the base and knit five Sts in the third, skip the next two loops and do one StBN in the third.
- The resulting "shells" are repeated until the end of the row. The second armhole is tied in the same way.

Anytying always decorates a children's crocheted sundress. A crochet description and a photo of an openwork pattern will allow the craftswoman to quickly and accurately tie a children's product of the desired size.

This model looks interesting with a white petticoat. It is important that its length is longer than the length of the sundress itself, since the lace edge should peek out from under the knitted skirt.
