Crochet Turtleneck Bodycon Dress | Tutorial DIY


for this project any category four yarn
will work but I’m using a little more than a half a skein of caron one pound
in lace as for tools a seven millimeter hook stitch markers scissors and a tape
measure we’re using five stitches for this project and they will be as
followed chain slip stitch single crochet half double crochet and a double crochet
this tutorials for a size small but you can adjust it for your size and we
explain how to in the video so let’s get started
getting this dress started we’re first going to grab our category four yarn make
a slipknot we’re gonna grab our six millimeter hook and we’re gonna start
off by making a chain that goes from your underarm down to your hip and just
as a reference mine is ten inches or 25 centimeters now that we have our chain
the first row that we’re gonna do is going to be a really basic row of single
crochet so we’re just gonna block off this last chain that we made with our
thumb we’re going to chain up one extra and then we’re going to go into that
loop that we blocked off or the second chain from the hook with a single
crochet and then from here we’re going to be going into every chain that we
have just with one single crochet so let’s do a couple together I’m gonna
insert our hook yarn over pull through one yarn over pull through two and set
your hook into that next chain we’re gonna yarn over pull through one yarn
over pull through two it’s just one more time into this next chain insert your
and over pull through one yarn over pull through two and then from here we are
just gonna be going all the way down with one single crochet into every chain
and then I’ll meet you guys back we now have our first row of single crochet and
every row after this is going to be row of back loop slip stitches and that’s so
that we can get a really pretty ribbing look for this dress but in order to do
that let’s show you guys for this next row we’re going to be doing an increase
so we’re going to chain up two from here flip our work and then we’re going to
skip this second loop that we have right here the one that’s closest to the hook
we’re gonna skip this guy and then go into this next chain with a back loop
slip stitch so into this next chain we’re gonna go into that back loop and
we’re gonna yarn over pull through everything and this is a different way
than the way that we normally do increases but this way is a lot cleaner
also so that you guys don’t miss any loops on the end so that everything
turns out even but let’s do more back loop slip
stitches as you guys can see we’re back to where our single crochet row is but
it’s going to be all the same so into this next loop we’re gonna insert into
that back loop we’re going to yarn over and pull through everything on the hook
do this a couple more times insert into that back loop yarn over pull through
everything on the hook insert into the back loop yarn over pull through
everything and we’re gonna keep doing this all the way until we get to the end
and then when we get to the end we’re gonna be doing another increase but I
will show you guys how to do that just one more time we’ve made our way all the
way to the end with our first row of back loops slip stitches and we’re going
to increase on this end just like how we increase on the other end and let’s show
you guys how to do that so our increase just one more time is going to be a
chain out of two we’re going to flip our work we’re going to skip this chain that
we have that’s closest to our hook insert our hook into the back loop of
the second chain that we have insert and then we’re gonna do a back loop slip
stitch so go ahead and yarn over and pull through everything on the hook and
then we’re going to continue going back down with back loop slip stitches and
let’s actually do this one more time I’ll meet you guys back one so we make
it to the end I’ll show you guys how to increase one more time and then we’ll
talk to you guys about the rest of the dress we have just made our way all the
way back down our next row of back loops slip stitches and we’re going to do
another increase so let’s do that together really quick we’re at the end
so we’re going to chain out two flip our work skip this first chain that’s
closest to our hook insert our hook into that second chain but making sure you’re
only going into that back loop we’re going to insert pull through everything
that’s on the hook and then continue doing back loop slip stitches all the
way down when you guys make it to the end we’re going to increase on that end
again and then we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down until we get to
the part where we want to start working on our shoulder portion and then we’re
going to expand from there but just to let you guys know for me this little
increase section is going to be about four inches or 10 centimeters but please
keep in mind that this does stretch quite a bit as well so take
that into account when you guys are measuring this out for yourself but I’m
actually going to show you guys the other half the dress that I have just to
show you guys what we’re working on so this is the other side of the dress that
I have I know that this looks a little nuts but it’ll all come together I
promise but this is the part that we’re currently working on this is the part
that we did that went from from our underarm down to our hip and then from
here we expanded doing our increases on the ends and then from here this is
going to be the solid portion that I just told you guys about this is gonna
be where I want the shoulder neck portion to start so obviously we went
all the way up so that this reaches the tip of our shoulders and then we
obviously need the dress to be longer so this is what this portion is all the way
down as well but we’ll get to this once when well we get to this but we’re going
to keep doing just the expanded portion until you guys have the length that you
guys need but really quickly I said that it stretches but let me just show you
this stretches a lot so keep that in mind and we don’t want this to be too
loose because this is a bodycon dress we don’t want any parts of it to be a
little wonky looking so yeah go ahead and make this solid portion really quick
and then I will meet you guys back alrighty so this is what I have when I
have my four inches / 10 centimeters all finished up and as you guys can see you
guys wouldn’t have this part done yet but I’m just showing you guys because I
know that it’ll be a little confusing but this is what we have so far it is
exactly the same and now since we’re here we’re going to start working on the
shoulder portion and this part is going to be all different but basically what
we’re going to do is put this up to ourselves remembering that this can
stretch so if this seems really small just stretch it out but you’re gonna put
this smaller side up to your side and then this is going to stretch over you
going towards your chest and then from here we’re going to make a chain that
reaches from where our hook is up to the middle part of our shoulder and I
already have mine mine is a total of if I can find it yeah mine is a total of
five inches or 13 centimeters so we’re just gonna make a regular chain from
here so we are at this corner like I said and we’re just going to make a
regular chain and that chain length is going to depend on you and the length that
you guys need to get from here to wherever the top of your shoulder is
like I said mine is 5 inches or 13 centimeters so we’re just gonna go in
with a very regular chain and the ones we have our chain I’ll meet you guys
back we now have our chain on the end of our whatever this is our
increase/decrease section and then once when we get here we’re going to block
off that last chain we’re going to chain up one and then we’re gonna go down our
chain with a row of slip stitches so into our first chain or the chain that
we blocked off or the second chain from the hook oh boy we’re gonna insert our
hook with a slip stitch so we’re just gonna go into that loop yarn over pull
through everything on the hook let’s do this again into the loop after is that
yarn over pull through everything and then we’re going to continue doing slip
stitches all the way down our chain once when we get to this main body portion we
are going to continue doing back loop slip stitches I’ll meet you guys back so
that we can do that together and then we will continue to do the bottom portion
of the dress once we get to the bottom so BRB and I will beat you guys back
we’ve made our way down with slip stitches all the way down our chain and
like I said now we’re going to just do more back loop slip stitches into this I
don’t know I guess this chunk that we have so what we’re gonna do is turn our
work if we have to if not then what else and then from here what we’re gonna do
is go into the back loops with slip stitches so we’re gonna insert yarn over
pull through everything and then everything from here is going to be
exactly the same so go ahead and quote one slip stitch one back loop slip
stitch excuse me into every loop until we get down to the bottom but don’t
increase because we’re actually going to extend that part as well because the
part that we just did was the neck portion and then we’re obviously going
to you to extend the bottom for the skirt and actually right before we
continue I’m going to insert a stitch marker a specific colored stitch marker
just in this top chain this actually does nothing this just reminds me that
this is the neck portion instead of the bottom and I know that the bottom is
going to be a little bit longer than the neck but this is easier to just see
instead of having to measure an eyeball so that’s what I’m doing you guys don’t
have to if you guys don’t have one or if you guys don’t want to really doesn’t
matter but thought I’d share a tip with you but anyways so from here we’re gonna
go all the way down doing back loops slip stitches and then I’ll meet you
guys back on so we get to the last loop so that we can extend the skirt portion so this is where we’re at we have part
chain with slip stitches and then we went all the way down with back loop
slip stitches and we are all the way at the end and then once we get here you
guys are going to want to put this up to yourselves again and then measure out
and see how long you want the bottom of the skirt to be so I went ahead and
measured mine out and I’m gonna make a chain of nine inches or 23 centimeters
but yours can be longer shorter whatever you guys want this is completely up to
you guys so I’m gonna go ahead and make that chain and it’s gonna be exactly the
same way that we did the first one so once when we’re in this last loop just
go ahead and start making your chain and then I’ll meet you guys back even though
I’m sure you guys already know what to do but I’ll meet you guys back anyways
we now have our chain and this is going to be exactly exactly the same as the
first time we did it so we’re just gonna block off this last chain that we made
chain up one extra insert your hook into that chain that we blocked off with a
slip stitch or this is gonna be the second chain from the hook and then go
ahead and put one slip stitch into every chain going back down the chain and then
once we make it back to this chunky part we’re gonna continue doing back loops
slip stitches to continue on with the pattern and then I’ll actually meet you
guys back once when we get to the chunky part once we get to this part right here
but even though you guys already know what to do but I’ll speak to you guys a
little bit more about this dress once we get here
we’ve slip stitched all the way down and we’re
going to go back into the chunky portion with our back loop slip stitches so
insert your hook into this first back loop yarn over pull through everything
one more time insert it into the back loop yarn over pull through everything
and that’s basically it and then I’m going to bring out the entirety of the
other portion of the dress that we have and then we’ll talk about it so this is
what we should have so far as you guys can see I’m just bringing out the other
portion the dress just to show you guys because I know that this is the nuttiest
way to make a dress but this is what we have like I said and then from here
we’re actually going to just make this portion so the blunt portion all the way
up until this middle point and this is where this stitch marker is some of you
guys may be able to see it but I’m just going to continue doing this blunt
portion until we get to the exact middle mark of the dress and it’s gonna be
simple once we get to the middle mark we’re basically just going to make the
same thing but in Reverse so once we get to the middle mark we’re
going to make another blunt section that is basically duplicated from this first
blunt section that we’re currently working on and then once we have that
we’re going to make a little I don’t know we’ve been calling it a chunky
section but this little decrease section which I’ll show you guys how to decrease
for this as well but we’re gonna make a little decrease section that matches the
exam bx8 Wow the same amount of loops on this side so go ahead and make this
blunt portion first until we get to the middle point I will meet you guys when I
get to the middle point and then we’ll go from there I will show you guys how
to keep this blunt even though I’m sure you guys already know it’s SuperDuper
simple but I’ll show you guys how to do that in the next clip and then also
since we’re doing this until we get to the middle point sorry I’m talking so
much but since we’re doing this until we get to the middle point this is actually
going to be pretty crucial to the dress make sure that you keep putting it up to
yourselves every now and then and when you do put it up to yourself I cannot
stress enough make sure you stretch it when you do because it’s going to be
stretched when you wear it so if you make this a little bit too big then
it’ll be kind of scrunched up in areas that you
don’t want it scrunched up in so we want this to be tight so now that all that is
out of the way I will continue doing my row of back loops slip stitches all the
way down and then surpassing this chunky section onto this little chain that we
made for ourselves and I’ll meet you guys back when so we get down here so
that we can keep this blunt together and then from here I’m at a brothel once I’m
going to get here we are going to continue making this blunt portion until
we get to the middle point I will like well leave you guys alone now so I’ll
see you guys back and so we get down here we have made it all the way to the
end we don’t have any more loops to go into so we are going to do the next row
together or at least start the next row together and that is super easy because
we’re keeping it blunt so we’re gonna do is chain up one flip our work and then
into this first back loop just do a regular slip stitch and that’s it we’re
gonna keep doing back loop slip stitches all the way down and then once we reach
the other end once we get to the last loop you’re just going to chain up one
flip my work and then continue doing one back loop slip stitch into every loop
that we have and that’s basically it and then I’ll meet you guys back once when
this blunt portion meets the middle so we get to the middle of this piece of
work and then we’ll go from there we have just finished up doing our blunt
piece as you guys can see and I do have the other piece here just to show you
guys where we’re at so we’re just gonna take a look at one side cuz the other
side would be exactly the same we’re just going to compare it and then as you
guys can see I have exactly halfway of what I need for this entire body portion
and this should come out to exactly mid-chest
where your belly button is all that good stuff so once we have this we’re going
to do the exact same thing that we did here but reverse it on the other side so
from here you guys don’t need to put this up to
yourself anymore you’re just going to measure out what we have right here and
I have three inches or seven centimeters so I’m going to make the same size on
this side right here and then once we have this
entire chunk we’re going to start working on the decrease portion but once
when we have this chunk we’re going to cut and tie and then reattach our yarn
into the same spot that we need the decrease section to be in so go ahead
and make the exact same thing just double up the size that you currently
have cut and tie and then I’ll meet you guys back to do this last bit for the
body portion now we have this entire solid portion all finished up and then
now once we have that we are going to do the same
chunky part that we have right here but we’re going to be doing it on this side
but with decreases so the first thing that you guys have to do before we get
started is actually just measure out however many inches centimeters however
you guys are measuring this that we have from one end down to the next on this
side so since you guys don’t have this first panel yet let’s set this aside and
this is what we’re gonna be looking at so whatever measurement you guys have
from the tip of this shoulder portion down to where we stopped doing our
increases you’re going to take that measurement and then put your stitch
marker into that same measurement that we have on the other side and then we’re
going to do the same thing for the bottom portion take this measurement
measure out the other side and then put in your stitch marker and then for this
first row it’s going to be super easy we’re just going to go in with a regular
row of back loops slip stitches but right before we get started a really
quick tip that I have is we’re going to see where we cut our yarn for this
previous solid chunk that we just did and then we’re going to keep going from
that side because since we end it on this side and then say if we start it on
this side for example this will cut up the ribbing pattern that we have just a
little bit it’ll still look okay if you guys accidentally do it but it would be
more seamless if we just kind of went with the flow of the way that the yarn
is already going so since my yarn is on this side since we would be here we’re
going to well we would chain up one flip our work and so now it’s on this side
and then now we’re going to go in with a row of back loop slip stitches from this
first stitch marker all the way down to our next stitch marker now that we’re
working our way back down we’re just going to do our row of red
they’re back loop slip stitches like I said so this is the row that we were or
this is the side that we were just in then we’re going to pretend that we’re
going down this way but we’re gonna insert our hook into this first back
loop that we have right after our stitch marker so that we can maintain this
little chunk that we have on the side so into this next available loop we’re
obviously not going to go into this one because that’s the one that the stitch
markers in into the next available back loop we’re going to insert our hook take
our yarn make a slipknot insert that onto our hook we’re going to pull
through and we’re just going to chain up one to secure and then once when we
have that we’re gonna go in with back loop slip stitches so into the next
available loop back loop yarn over pull through everything let’s do this again
next loop insert it into that back loop yarn over pull through everything and
we’re gonna keep doing this until we make our way over to this next stitch
marker I’m gonna keep going until I get to the last stitch marker that I have
right before this stitch marker and then we’re going to start decreasing I’ll
show you guys how to do that once when we get there we’ve made it all the way
next all the way next we’ve made it all the way down to our next stitch marker
with our back loop slip stitches and now we’re going to decrease but stay with me
because this is going to be a little not confusing maybe just a little annoying
so once we get here we’re going to chain up one we’re going to flip our work and
then once we get here into these first two loops we’re going to do a decrease
and that is gonna be regular so we’re gonna insert into this first back loop
yarn over pull through insert into this next back loop yarn over and we’re just
going to pull through everything that’s on the hook and then the annoying part
is actually that we’re not going to be doing this at the beginning and the end
of every row so you’re gonna have to keep track of when you’re going to
decrease so since we decrease here we’re going to put one back loop slip stitch
into every loop all the way down all the way down until we have the last loop and
we’re not going to decrease here once when we chain up one to get to our next
row then we’re going to decrease again so I’m gonna go all the way down with
back loop slip stitches all the way down to this very last loop and then I will
show you guys what to do just one more time
we’ve done our back loops slip stitches all the way down we don’t have any more
loops left to go into into this row so we’re going to chain up one flip our
work and we’re going to do another decrease so like I said when we’re going
what we’re working down a row when we’re doing our slip stitches down we’re not
going to do a decrease but the way that I remembered it was that once when we
chained up one to start off a next row we’re going to do a decrease in there
and then you’re going to do back loop slip stitches all the way down no
decrease once when you get to the end chain up one and then decrease and then
back loop slip stitches going back back and forth that way and then we’re gonna
keep doing this until we have the same measurement that we have for this chunk
that we did in the beginning where we did our increases so where this first
row single crochets was all the way until we get to this solid portion that
we have right here we’re gonna keep doing this until we have the same amount
because we need it to be even so really quickly I’m just gonna show you guys how
to decrease just one more time but we already did our chain up one into this
first back loop we’re gonna insert an over pull through into this next loop
insert your an over and we’re gonna pull through everything on the hook and the
ones we have that guy we are going to continue doing back loops slip stitches
all the way down all the way until we get to the last loop we’re going to
chain up one to a decrease into those first two back loops and then do back
loop slip stitches all the way down and then keep doing that until we have the
same measurement and then I’ll meet you guys back once we have this done but we
are going to make two of these matching pieces but I’ll meet you guys back once
when I have this one all finished up just to show you guys what it looks like
as you guys can see I am already all finished up with doing this decrease
section that we just talked about and then I’m pretty much done with one piece
I went ahead and cut and tied and this is what everything is looking like and
then just to make sure that everything is even if you guys want to y’all can
fold it in half then everything should fold together nicely and then once we
have one of these done we’re going to do the same exact thing to the other piece
as you guys already know we already have a second piece already made but once we
have both of our pieces made we’re going to be connecting this
it’s together and then we’re gonna start working on the bottom detail but in
order to connect the sides together the first thing that we have to do is make
sure that it is on the right side make sure that the top is at the top as you
guys can see I mentioned that I put a specific colored stitch marker on the
top just to make sure that it’s a top you just want to make sure that it’s on
the same side and then from there we can just go ahead and sandwich it together
and then we’ll single crochet each loop together but I’ll show you guys how to
do that right now now that we’re ready to connect our sides together our front
and our back views together we are just going to do a row of single crochet
making sure that our hook goes in through the front loop and or the front
panel excuse me and the back panel at the same time that way that we can close
everything off together and then once when we finish up with this blunt
section we’re going to cut and tie and do the same thing with the other side so
really quickly we’re going to insert our hook into the front panels first blunt
side loop that we have and then take a look at the second panel we’re gonna
insert our hook into the first loop that we have here there are going to pull
through then now that they are both attached to our yarn we’re going to
chain up one to secure and then now we’re just going to connect together
doing a single crochet so into the next available loop into the front panel
we’re going to insert our hook into this first loop we’re gonna take a look at
our back panel and then we’re going to insert our hook into the next available
loop that we have on our back panel and then once we have that single crochet
like normal let’s do this a couple more times together into the next available
loop that we have into the next front panel and then into the next available
loop that we have into the back panel if I can show you guys and then single
crochet and then that’s basically it we’re just going to keep doing this
until we make our way all the way down this little blunt section that we have
once we make it to the end we’re going to cut and tie and then once we have
this side all connected we’re going to do the same thing to the other side and
then we’ll meet you guys back so that we can do the little bottom detail that
we’re going to have together so this is what we have once when we have attached
both of our sides as you guys can see we have a seam over here and then also the
same seam on the other side and then at this point you guys can try this on if
you guys want to just to make sure that everything’s fit and right and then the
next thing that we’re gonna do is work on our bottom detail we are now ready to
start working on the bottom curve detail just like how we have right here and it
looks a little crazy right now but it looks a lot better once when it’s on but
now we’re going to start going in with just regular rows of single crochets and
half double crochets until it curves until we can kind of close it off so the
first row that we’re gonna do is just going to be a regular row of single
crochets so we’re gonna start into this corner and then we’re just going to go
straight into every loop that we have and then once when we get to this
section we’re gonna call these the arches for video sake once we get into
the arches there’s not going to be any real loops for us to go into so we’re
gonna have to try to figure it out but make sure that it’s even on both sides
and then we will go from there so let’s do the first row of single crochet
together so we’re gonna get started with our first row of single crochets so what
we’re gonna do is find one of the corners doesn’t matter which one well
we’re gonna insert our hook into that corner slide our yarn with a slip knot
onto our hook we’re gonna pull through chain up one to secure and then one so
we have that we’re gonna go into every loop we’re not gonna be going into the
back loops for this first row we’re just gonna be going into every loop regularly
with a single crochet so really quickly into the next available loop that we
have insert and it’s nothing fancy we’re going in through both loops like usual
and know what we’re gonna do from here is single crochet and then we’re gonna
do this all the way until we get to the arches once we get right here and then
you guys can go ahead and figure it out but I’m just going to meet you guys back
just to show you guys where I like to put them in just to make sure that
they’re a little bit even so I’ll meet you guys back in like two seconds we are
finally at our arch and on this side there’s going to be some not really but
kind of hoops for us so there actually going to be this first loop
that we’re going to go into because we’re into the last loop of this blunt
portion so into this first prettier loop that we have we’re gonna insert our hook
into there with a single crochet or wherever this is just where I like to go
in just to make sure that mine are even and then once when you look in between
these two I don’t know what to call these like mounds there’s going to be
two loops in between and I like to put one single crochet into each of those
guys as well so one into this first pretty loop and then one into the second
pretty loop in between the two mounds that we have so let’s do this again
this is mound one mound two we’re gonna separate it just a little bit this is
gonna be one pretty loop right here and the one pretty loop right here so insert
your hook into that first pretty loop with a single crochet and then into that
second pretty loop with another single crochet and here we’re gonna keep doing
this all the way down down the other side of
the arch and then single crochet some more all the way down the blunt side and
then from there we’re gonna be doing some back loop half double crochets but
I’ll meet you guys back so we can do that together
we have just made our way all the way around with our first row of single
crochet around the bottom cut out that we left for ourselves you know what
we’re gonna do from here is a row of half double crochets so we’re gonna
chain up two that counts as a half double crochet we’re going to prepare
for a half double crochet and then we’re gonna go into the back loop so that we
have some more ribbing so into this next available loop we’re gonna insert our
hook into that back loop yarn over pull through we should have three loops on
the hook yarn over pull through everything on the hook let’s do this
again prepare for a half double crochet insert our yarn in through that back
loop we’re gonna yarn over pull through should have three loops and over pull
through everything and then this part is going to be different for everyone so
we’re going to keep doing back loop half double crochets until we get to the end
of this blunt portion and then we’re going to start decreasing once when we
get to the arches but I will meet you guys back once when we have done our
back loop half double crochets all the way up until we finish up this blunt
portion and then I will talk to you about the decreases once when we get
there okay so we just made our way down with
our row of half-loop double crochets all the way until you got to the end of our
blunt portion and I’m just showing you like this for now I’ll show you guys how
to actually do the decreases but we just want to talk about it really quick now
that we’re at our arches we’re going to look at this first half first and it’s
gonna be the same thing for the second half that is directly behind it but
we’re just going to be looking at this first and then once when we get here
we’re actually going to just eyeball it this is going to be different for every
one there’s not a number count there’s not a measurement this is going to be up
to you guys but we’re gonna start decreasing but we’re only going to be
doing two decreases and then so where I like to decrease is somewhere towards
the beginning of this end of our arch and then somewhere towards this end of
our arch as well and then that’s going to eventually bring all of our work
together so that we can eventually just have a straight row and then we can
connect it with a row of single crochet from there so it’s still gonna be back
loop half double crochets and then we’re and then we’re also gonna be doing other
than these two decreases that we’re gonna have per arch we’re also going to
have one decrease in the middle as well just to help us decrease this entire
section a little bit more so let’s do a couple half double crochets and then
I’ll show you guys how to decrease we’ll do the other side together and then I
will talk you guys through the rest we are now at our arch like I just showed
you and now we’re gonna do it’s just some decreases in slightly kind of not
really random spots on to this archway that we have so let’s do this together
so now that it’s starting to curve I’m just gonna go in with a handful of back
loop half double crochets until we get a little bit more inward of our arch and
then you will do a decrease so I just did a couple and then now I’m going to
show you guys how to decrease really quick we’re gonna prepare for a double
crochet or a half double crochet I’m sorry insert our hook into this first
back loop yarn over pull through and then we’re going to take our hook and
start it into the next back loop yarn over pull through we should have four
loops on the hook yarn over pull through everything that’s
on our hook and then that is our first decrease into this arch section that we
have and then from here I’m going to do more half double crochets until we get
fairly close to this end that has the seam we’re not going to go all the way
up until we get to the seam because this is going to be one decrease here but
we’re going to get to about a quarter of the way to the seam and then we’re going
to do another decrease but we’re going to stick together for that you’re just
gonna do a couple more half double crochets until we basically just decide
to do a decrease so let’s do a little bit more okay and then so I’m going to
show you guys I’m just about here this is the seam this is the midway point
until we get to the other side of our arch that we have and now we’re gonna do
a decrease and that’s gonna be the same way that we did the first one so we’re
going to prepare for a half double crochet insert into this first back loop
yarn over pull through insert into this next back loop yarn over pull through
you should have four loops on the hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through
everything on the hook and then from here we’re gonna prepare for another
half double crochet and then keep half double crocheting until we get to the
loops that’s right where the seam is and then there’s going to be one direct
middle loop and it doesn’t matter if we use that one to start the decrease or
end the decrease but just make sure that you end around there so let’s just go
all the way up until we get to this loop really quickly we are now at the middle
you guys can pick whatever loops you guys want but I’m just gonna go into
this loop that we have right here so I’m gonna prepare for a half double crochet
insert into this back loop and then we’re going to yarn over pull through
insert into the next back loop which just so happens to be my middle loop
we’re going to yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all four and from
here we can turn our work just a little bit and now we’re working along the
other side of our arch and we’re gonna do the exact same thing that we just did
on this previous side over here so we’re going to do a couple half double
crochets inward do a decrease and do a couple more half double crochets
and then do a half double crochet decrease a little bit more towards this
end so somewhere around here and then once when we get to the blunt part we’re
just going to do regular back loop half double crochets so we’ll do that
together we’re going to do a few half double crochets making sure that we’re
going into the back loops we’re gonna move inwards just a little bit and then
once we get to a good spot we’re going to do our decrease so this looks about
good for me as you guys can see this is a seam I done a couple half double
crochets and we’re going to decrease together so we’re gonna prepare for a
half double crochet insert into that next back loop yarn over pull through
into the back loop after that yarn over pull through yarn over pull through
everything and then now we’re gonna do more regular half double crochet 5
double crochets until we get close to the blunt end and then we’re going to do
another decrease so we’re gonna stick together for this again and then I will
show you guys how to do half double crochet decreases one last time and then
the row after this is actually going to be exactly the same thing but with
single crochets so that we get a little bit of a different ribbing look than the
main body portion of the dress which is still pretty but it’s just gonna be a
little bit different and we’re doing just a couple more half double crochets
and this looks about good this spot so I’m going to prepare for a half double
crochet insert into this next back loop yarn over pull through into the one
after that yarn over pull through yarn over pull through everything on the hook
and then from here I will leave you guys we’re gonna go down going into every
back loop with a half double crochet once we make it to the end we will do
back loop single crochet row with more decreases into the arcs and I will meet
you guys back so we can do that together as well we’ve made our way all the way
down with our row of back loop half double crochets and now we’re going to
chain up one this works our way up to the next row and now we’re going to
start by doing back loop single crochets so all that is is
your hook into the back loop for the next available loop yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through two and we’re gonna keep doing back loop single
crochets with nothing fancy all the way up until we meet our all the way up
until we meet our arches and then we will do the decreases together this is
where we’re at we’ve done our row of back loop single crochets all the way up
until we got to our arches as you guys can see this is where it starts and
we’re going to do the same thing that we did with the half double crochets but
with back loop single crochets instead so into the next few available back
loops that we have we’re just gonna do some regular back loop single crochets
until we get just a little inward on our arch and then we’re going to do a
decrease so I’m in a decent spot so I’m going to insert my hook into that next
back loop yarn over pull through insert my hook into the next back loop yarn
over pull through we should have three loops on our hook we’re going to yarn
over pull through everything you’re just on our back loop single crochet and
we’re going to continue going in with more back loop single crochets until we
get really close to that middle seam that we have in the body portion of the
dress and then we’re going to do another decrease there and then one decrease
into the middle so right where the seam is and then we’re going to be working
our way down the other side of our arches putting the two single crochet
decreases back loops in there as well so I am decently close to the seam this is
where we’re at and then this is the seam right here so I’m going to insert yarn
over pull through insert yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three
and then from here we’re going to go towards this seam that we have but we’re
going to kind of adjust it to where we did our decrease in the previous row so
as you guys can see let’s look at it this way actually probably a little bit
easier as you guys can see this is where our seam is and then this decrease that
we did in the previous row you can see that it’s bigger and a little bit more
twisted is on one side of the seam so the decrease that we’re going to do
this row that we’re currently working on is going to be on the other side of the
seam and then we’re gonna keep alternating it like that for every other
row because if we keep doing it on one side or if we don’t pay attention it’s
like there would be two decreases on this side one on this side one on this
side it just it would be a mess and then one side of your arch would actually be
smaller than the other side so that you have to later on adjust which wouldn’t
be difficult but it would just kind of give you a little bit more of a headache
and now that we have that knowledge we’re going to go in to our next two
loops with another decrease and then continue on the pattern from there so
really quickly let’s look at this really quick this is where the decrease was in
the previous row and I left the two loops right before that available so
that we can decrease in here and then that’s basically all we’re gonna be
doing from here on out so we’re going to insert our hook into the next back loop
yarn over pull through into the back loop after that you’re on over pull
through yarn over pull through all three and then now we’re basically working
into this other arch that we have right here and then we’re going to continue on
with this pattern so we’re going to do a couple of back loop single crochets
together and then once when we get a little inward we are going to do a
decrease and this looks about good this is where the seam is and then we just
went in by a little bit we’re gonna insert your and over pull through into
the next back loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through
everything and do the same thing a couple more back loop single crochets
until we get close to the blunt portion and as you guys can tell this is the
blunt portion right here and then once we get pretty close to that we’re going
to do another back loop single crochet decrease so let’s do a couple more and
this looks about good so we’re gonna insert our hook into this next back loop
yarn over pull through into the back loop after that yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through everything and then once when we get here we’re going
to do more back loop single crochets all the way until we get to the end and then
we are going to do a chain above – that counts as a half
double crochet and then we’re going to go down with the back loop half double
crochets doing the exact same thing that we just did so back loop a stubble
crochets until we get up to the end of the the end of the blunt portion which
is about right here and then we’re going to do a back loop half double crochets
until we get inward a little bit do a decrease and then do another decrease
once we get close to the seam sorry guys can see that do another decrease once we
get close to the seam do a decrease into the middle right where the seam is and
then continue that same pattern on this side once we get all the way down we’re
gonna do back loop single crochet row and we’re gonna keep alternating like
that until we actually don’t have any more of these arch rows to go into and
then from there we’ll meet each other back but we’ll go into each row until we
have just the same amount of loops that we have right here for this blunt
portion and then I’ll meet you guys back so this is what we have so far now that
we’ve done our rows of single crochet 2 half double – single – half double and
we did some decreases along the arches that we have right here the other side
looks exactly the same as this side so I’m not going to show you guys and then
I actually went all the way down until I don’t have an arch left obviously you
guys can see this is my opening flap that I have still and then as you can
see from this seam all the way up here it’s pretty much all flat and I also
counted to see how many loops I had here right before we got to our first archway
and we just so happen to have a same amount of loops right here so we are
going to leave it like this and then we’re just going to single crochet
everything together these are the two side flaps that we have and now we’re
just going to connect it one of the tips that I’m going to tell you really quick
even though I’m sure you guys already know is just make sure that it’s on the
same side as this seam that we made for the side of the body portion because we
want all the seams to be on the same side and then once when we flip it
inside out that’s when it’ll you know be inside out anyways we’re gonna continue
on with connecting it now and it’s gonna be the same exact way
that we connected the body portion so we’re gonna insert our hook into this
next hoop into this next loop since our hook is in through this side we’re going
to insert in through that corner loop we’re gonna yarn over pull through
everything and then we’re going to insert our hook into this next available
loop into the next available loop that we have on the back panel and single
crochet if I can let’s do this together one more time into the next available
loop in the front panel and then into the next available loop in the back
panel hands single crochet and then we’re gonna keep doing this
all the way down once we make it to the end we are going to cut and tie and then
once when we have that done we are going to do this same exact thing that we have
on this side on the other side so alternating between back loop single
crochets and back loop half double crochets while we do two decreases into
each arc side so two on this side and then two on this side while maintaining
just one decrease going all the way down the middle one so we don’t have any more
of an arc to go into go ahead and single crochet all the way down to connect
everything and then we’ll be all done with both of these guys and then we can
work on the little shoulder portion that we’re gonna have so I will meet you guys
back once when we have both of our sides done we’re now all finished up doing our
bottom detail on both sides so here’s one we turn it a little bit here’s the
second one and then now we’re going to start working on oh no the shoulder cuff
that we have right here and as you guys can see I already have one of them done
but we’re going to do the next one together but they’re going to be exactly
the same on both sides so we’ll get both of them done but once when we get here
we’re actually going to be able to try it on now and what we’re going to do
once we try it on is measure out from corner to corner
so from this corner we’re going to measure up and over your shoulder down
to this corner and once we have that measurement or just going to make a
chain that connects from corner to corner I already went ahead and measure
mine out and mine is a total of eight inches or 20 centimeters from this
corner up and over to this corner so go ahead and insert your hook into one of
these corners I can take the stitch marker out we’re gonna insert our
hook into that corner and then make a chain that is the length of whatever
measurement you guys have we’re going to attach it into this other corner with a
slip stitch and then we’ll go on from there we now have our chain and what
we’re going to do is slip stitch it into this other corner that we have so we’re
going to insert it into this corner we’re going to yarn over and pull
through everything on the hook and then once we have that we’re going to chain
up one and cut and then the next thing we’re going to do is we’re gonna go in
with a row of single crochet along the entire armhole that we have I’ve turned
my work on its side just so that it’s easier to see the armhole but this is
what we have so far it’s kind of big so we’re gonna go in with a cuff just to
tighten it up a little bit but what we’re gonna do from here is take a look
and see where our seam is into the body portion that we did just I don’t know at
some point earlier in the video and then once when we get here we’re gonna insert
a hook somewhere near the seam it doesn’t need to be directly into it but
somewhere next to it is great we’re gonna insert our hook pull through we’re
gonna chain up one two secure and for this first row it’s just gonna be rows
of single crochet that goes all the way around our armhole so let’s do the first
little bit together because right here we don’t have any real holes for us to
go into so we’re just going to try to find a hole and insert and then just
kind of go all the way around from there there’s gonna be some pretty holes as we
have discovered when we were doing this earlier there’s gonna be some pretty
holes for us to go into go ahead and go into those with single crochets and then
go ahead and make your way all the way around once we make it to the end we are
going to connect with a slip stitch we’ve just made our way all the way
around with our row of single crochet going along the entirety of our armhole
and we made it all the way around and we’re just going to slip stitch into
that first loop that would mean for ourselves so into this first loop we’re
going to insert our hook yarn over pull through and then once we get here we’re
actually going to take a look at the armhole
it is then we’re gonna speak about it just a little bit more before we get
going before we get started on working on the actual cuff of the side that
we’re working on right now we’re just going to take a look at this other cuff
that I have finished up and as you guys can see along the bottom right here it
is a lot smaller then when we get up closer to the tip of the shoulder and
that is because we want this to close in our arm because if we keep everything
the biggest stitch that we caught up here was a double crochet by the way but
if we keep everything as a double crochet it will actually kind of tube
our shoulder portion out a little bit and we don’t want that we want this to
be as clean as possible so this part is going to be completely customizable and
up to you guys how you guys want to do it but we are all going to start
together with a row of single crochet and then we’re eventually going to work
our way up to half double crochets and then once when we get close to the tip
of the shoulder we’re gonna be working in double crochets the way that I
eyeballed it you guys can do it differently if you guys want but right
where this portion is I guess this is the arm version of the arch that we had
on the bottom but right where this portion is I went from single crochet
once when I hit just about halfway I started doing half double crochets and
then once when we hit this blunt portion this is where I just started to go in
with our rows of double crochet just to keep that blunt and then flip it over
it’s the exact same thing so double crochets it went up and over your
shoulder and then once when we hit this bent portion or where the arc is we’re
going to do a half double crochets and then single crochets at least that’s
what I did you guys can adjust it to whatever you guys want but with all that
being said now that we know what to do we’re going to do the first row together
and then we will have at it from there so two Clips ago we just slip stitched
into this first loop that we had after we finished up our row of single
crochets and now we’re about to work on our single crochets two half doubles two
doubles just like how I just mentioned and right before we get started on doing
that we’re going to do a decrease in the B
and also once we work our way around a decrease at the end and that will also
eliminate the tubing that I was talking about if we were to keep going with just
regular loops we want it to kind of taper in towards our body just a little
bit more so into these first two loops we’re actually gonna chain up one first
and these are all going to be into the back loops so into this first back loop
we’re going to insert our hook yarn over pull through into this next back loop
yarn over pull through and then we should have three yarn over pull through
all three and that is our decrease on this side and then once we get here
we’re going to eyeball it do more back loop single crochets until we get to
about mid arc or at least that’s what I’m gonna do and then we’re going to
switch it up and do half double crochets so let’s stick together for just a
minute I’m gonna do a couple back loop single crochets that wasn’t a single
crochet there we go and then let’s do a couple more one two and then we’re gonna
take a look at our arc from where we first started this row and then this is
where the arc ends this looks just about half way so I’m gonna go in with doing
back loop half double crochets from the next loop that we’re gonna go into all
the way up until we get to this blunt portion so from here we’re going to
prepare for a half double crochet insert it into this back loop we’re going to
yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three let’s do that again
prepare for a half double crochet insert into this back loop yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through all three and we’re gonna keep doing this until we
get to the blunt portion and then once we get to the blunt portion that part is
gonna be super easy we’re gonna be going into the back loop still but those are
going to be just regular double crochets so let’s get to that point and then I’ll
show you guys what to do from there a couple more and then this is also just
an eyeball as well because it’s not going to be like a specific loop for the
corner you’re just gonna have to use your best judgment but once when we get
about here as you guys can see this is where the blunt portion is
we’re going to prepare for a double crochet insert into this next back loop
with a double crochet so we’re gonna yarn over pull through one loop yarn
over pull through two yarn over pull through two do this again prepare for a
double crochet insert into the next back loop yarn over pull through yarn over
pull through two yarn over pull through two and then this part we are going to
do off-camera but we’re basically just gonna go from where this arc is we’re
where we started we’re going to do more back loop double crochets all the way up
and over your shoulder and then we’re going to meet together again once when
we hit the arc on the other side and then we’re going to do the rest of this
together we’re now on the other side of our shoulder cuff with our row of double
crochet and now we are at our arc on this side and now we’re just going to do
the same thing that we did on the other side but in reverse so we’re going to
start with half double crochets two single so we basically just want this to
get smaller once when we get closer to the seam that we have over here so we’re
going to do a couple of these together we’re gonna prepare for a half double
crochet into this next back loop we’re going to do half double crochets until
we get to about mid arch and then we’re going to switch over to back loop single
crochets but we’re not going to go all the way down we’re going to leave the
last two loops so that we can decrease into there as well so let’s do just a
couple of these guys all back loop half double crochets for now and this looks
about right so taking a look at where our arch
starts versus where it finishes we have just these loops left to go into so I’m
going to switch over to doing back loop single crochets and then we’re going to
go all the way down until we just have two loops left and then we’re going to
decrease so into this next back loop we’re going to do back loop single
crochets all the way down so close
it’s a couple more we’re gonna leave the last two loops and we’re gonna decrease
so these are the last two loops that we have right before we reach our seam
which is right here which is these two guys we’re going to do a decrease into
those two so we’re going to insert yarn over pull through insert into the next
back loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three and we have
our decrease on this side and then remember we started with a decrease
right here as well and then once when we get here we’re going to insert our hook
into that first loop that we made with a slip stitch so we’re going to yarn over
pull through everything on the hook and then from here the next few rows are
going to be exactly the same so start off with a decrease and then we’re gonna
go in with single crochet a half double and then to double that goes up and over
your shoulder once we get to the other side we’re gonna do a half double single
and then decrease at the end connect with a slip stitch and then keep going
around just like that and so you guys have a cuff size that you guys need and
mine is just a little bit over two inches so with 2 inches or 5 centimeters
but that is completely up to you guys depending on how big you guys want yours
to be so go ahead and do that and then I’ll meet you guys back once when we
have this done but once you guys have one of these done do your other cuff and
then I’ll meet you guys back then we are all finished up with doing both of our
shoulder cuffs and the last thing that we’re gonna do is make a little mock
neck for ourselves so the first thing that we’re gonna have to do is go into
the row of single crochet just around this neck hole that we made for
ourselves so this part is fairly easy we’re just gonna insert our hook into
any one of these loops it really doesn’t matter which one because we’re gonna
make our way around full circle anyways we’re going to make a slipknot insert
that onto our hook we’re going to pull through and chain up one two secure and
then we’re gonna go all the way around with the row of single crochet but for
this little chunk that we have in the front and also in the back we’re going
into our side slip stitches so there’s not going to be any real loops for us to
go into but really quickly what I like to do is just look for the pretty loops
and just put one single crochet into there and that usually evens out for me
so that’s take a look at this one here is another
pretty loop right here insert single crochet take a look here is another
pretty loop single crochet and we’re gonna do this all the way around once we
make it to the end we’re going to slip stitch into that first loop and then
we’ll get to working on the mock neck from there so now made it all the way
around with our row of single crochet and now we’re going to start working on
the mock neck and that’s going to be fairly simple we’re first gonna put this
on and see how long we want the mock neck to be and I’m going to make a chain
that is about four inches or 10 centimeters so I’m gonna go ahead and
make that chain and then we’ll meet you guys back once we have that we’re going
to go in with the row of slip stitches just like how we did the body portion of
the dress we now have our chain and what we’re going to do next is that row of
slip stitches just like how I mentioned so we’re gonna block off that last chain
chain up one and then we’re gonna insert our hook into that loop that we blocked
off or the second chain from the hook and then we’re going to yarn over and
then we’re gonna pull through everything on the hook just like that and let’s do
this together again into this next loop that we have insert your hook we’re
going to yarn over and then we’re gonna pull through everything on the hook so
basically the same thing that we did for the body portion we’re just going to
keep doing this all the way down once we make it to the end we’re going to
connect it into the base with another slip stitch but I’ll show you guys how
to do that once when we get there we’ve slip stitched once into every loop
that we have going back down our chain and then once when we have this we are
right at the base and we are going to connect it into the base with another
slip stitch so what we’re gonna do is take a look at the base that we have and
we’re going to count up just one loop so obviously we’re not gonna go into this
guy because this guy has our chain so we’re gonna go into this next available
loop that we have and then we’re going to insert yarn over with a slip stitch
so we’re gonna pull through everything and then now that row of slip stitches
is now connected and then in order to work our way up to the next row we’re
gonna slip stitch just one loop up you’re an over pull through flip our
work and then we’re gonna go in with more back loop slip stitches just like
how we did the body portion so really quickly into this first back
loop we’re gonna go in with a slip stitch and we’re just gonna keep going
like that so into every back loop we’re gonna put a back loop slip stitch once
we make it to the end we’re gonna chain up one flip our work and then do more
back loop slip stitches going all the way back down towards the base and then
I’ll show you guys how to connect it to the base just one more time and then we
will go from there we’ve just made our way down with our next row of back loops
slip stitches and we’re just going to show you guys how to connect it into the
base just one more time so into this next available loop that we have we’re
going to insert our hook with a slip stitch so we’re gonna yarn over pull
through everything and do that one more time so we can work our way up to the
next row pull through everything flip our work and then from here do back loop
slip stitches all the way down and then we’re gonna keep doing this around the
entirety of our neck hole that we have and then once when we get to this last
loop that we have on this side we’re going to connect it with a row of single
crochets just like how we did the side of the dress so I’ll meet you guys back
once we have all of this done we now have the main portion of our mock neck
pretty much all finished up this is what it looks like all the way around we
worked away until we didn’t have any more loops left to go into and the last
thing that we have to do is just connect it with a single crochet to close this
off and then we’ll basically be all done but right before we do that one thing
that we will do is I know that we have flipped our work right-side out so that
we can try it on but we do want our seams to all be on the same side so go
ahead and flip it wrong side out okay and then we’re gonna make sure that our
seams are facing the same way as you can see this is a body portion and this is
facing out and we’re gonna do the same thing that we did here over here so now
that everything is the correct way we’re going to go in with a single crochet
making sure that we go in through the front panel and the back panel now that
we’re ready what we’re gonna do is find this first loop I’m gonna
sir our hook nah this one right here and then we’re gonna find the first loop
that we have on the back panel which is this one and the ones we have that we
are going to single crochet them together let’s do the next one one more
time and then I’ll let you guys have at it because it’s pretty easy we’re going
to insert our hook into the next available loop and then into the next
available loop that we have on the back panel if my hook can go through there we
go and then we’re going to single crochet if it’ll let me single crochet
there we go and we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down once we make it to
the end we’re gonna cut and tie and then I’ll meet you guys back this is our
dress all finished up and we haven’t flipped it inside out yet because the
last thing that we’re gonna do is weave in all of our ends and then that’s about
it go ahead and do that and have at it have fun now that we’ve woven in our
ends we are ready for fall I’ve been daydreaming about this dress ever since
