This is a listing for the CROCHET PATTERN to make Alice's Shift Dress or Top. Alice's Shift Top/Dress makes me think of sun-dappled riverbanks, blue skies, and maybe a Cheshire cat or two. Make a top, or extend rows to make a sweater dress to wear with leggings. This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners, gives many sizing options, and allows you to choose either DK or worsted weight yarn. Pattern requires size 8mm and size 6mm crochet hooks and 2/3/3/4/5 balls of worsted weight or DK yarn (one ball extra per size if making the dress version of the pattern). Pattern covers sizes of XS/S/M/L/XL in DK weight yarn, or S/M/L/XL/XXL in worsted weight yarn. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY sc2tog GAUGE in worsted weight, 1 row = 1 inch // in DK weight, 1 row = about 0.9 inches

Supplies Needed

  • 6mm hook
  • 8mm hook

As a freelance copy editor and transcriptionist (and a student again as well!), I happily work for myself from home, which generally allows me to knit and craft and create when the mood strikes. For me, knitting and crocheting has evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between.
