Yarn selection

For summer models, it is better to choose natural yarn.

Fine yarn, the main component of which is cotton or bamboo fiber, is suitable. Microfiber, acrylic, lycra or rayon, which is present in the thread, will give additional properties to the product.
Crochet models of dresses with delicate elements in the waist, neckline or along the contour of the dress look very impressive.

The base of the dress is crocheted with a number 1, 2 or 3. The openwork of the elements is achieved by using a larger hook in the work or by including elements with a large number of air loops.

If you are a beginner, you can crochet a children's summer sundress or a dress of a straight model, assembled on a drawstring or belt. Such a dress does not need to make patterns and a snug fit on the figure.

There are many models of incredibly feminine dresses that are suitable for a gala evening or for a romantic date. Crocheted dresses are most often obtained light and delicate. But this is logical, for the hook, most of the pattern patterns are air and summer. The most chic is considered a crocheted dress using the technique of Irish lace. Only the most experienced craftswomen will undertake the creation of such a masterpiece.

What yarn to choose for a warm crocheted dress?

For crocheting dresses designed to be worn during the cold season, thicker yarn is suitable. The warmest items will be knitted from yarn, which at least 50% consists of wool. But be careful if the wool in the composition of the thread is 70% or more, the product can turn out to be prickly. Choose imported yarn or merino so that the coat is soft.

The presence of acrylic in such a yarn makes the knitted dress soft, airy and voluminous. Even on the coldest winter evening you will feel comfortable in it.
It is better to knit such a product with thicker hooks, number 4 or 5.

And to this day, a model of a winter dress that looks like a sweater with a high collar and a length up to the middle of the thigh or just above the knee looks quite popular.
