Heirloom Crochet Gown

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Heirloom Crochet Gown Link to website or photo web.archive.org/web/20040607005031/www.jacqscrochet.com/christeningdress.htm What are you most proud of? It was so tedious working in thread it took me months of working on it madly then putting it away to do another project, but I didn't give up until it was finished! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found a 1.00 hook very difficult to work with. If your tension is tight I would try a 1.25

What you will need

  • Size 20 white mercerized crochet cotton Size 1.25 crochet hook Pearl buttons

TerryS asked:
I really like this, it's so pretty. But do you by chance have a gage to see if we are making it too big or too small? I am not sure if I crochet tight or not, I think that I do sometimes and other times - who knows! lol
lizrev answered:
I don't have a gauge as such, but I have measured my gown and put the results in the "instructions" section above. Not sure where you are from so I will give them in both inches & centimeters. The gown would fit a newborn or small baby.
