Since it’s a crocheted sundress,

she chose to model it

while she was watering

one of the plants in the studio.

She asked for a

matching sunhat,

so I designed that, too.

I will post the pattern

for the sunhat

tomorrow.

The sundress is super simple to make.

You need to know how to work ch, sc, hdc and dc.

You will need one ball of Patons Canadiana (1oo% acrylic), approx 158 m/173 yds; 85 gm/3 0z in Crazy Shades.

I crocheted the dress with a ‘G’ (4.5 mm) crochet hook which gave a gauge of: 4 rows and 5 sc to 1 inch/2.5 cm.

The finished dress is 4 inches/10 cm from neckline to hem. The hem of the skirt is about 4 inches/10 cm across.

PATTERN: Note that all stitches are worked through back bar of stitch in previous row to give ridged pattern.

Flora’s  sundress is crocheted flat, beginning at the center back:

Ch 18.

Row 1: Skip 1st sc ;1 sc in each of next 7  ch ; 5 hdc, 5 dc. (17 stitches)

Row 2: Turn. Ch 3, 5 dc, 5 hdc, 7 sc.
