Periwinkle Princess Dress

Periwinkle Princess Dress

If you're familiar with a certain chilly Disney movie, then you may want to take a look at the Periwinkle Princess Dress. Made for the princess of ice and snow all throughout the land, this homemade Halloween costume is sure to be a favorite this year. I think my favorite part about this Halloween crochet pattern is all the layers of different patterns and colors to really create a fun and beautiful crochet costume. Your little girl will just want to float around from house to house while she trick-or-treats in her brand new homemade costume.

Notes

Directions are for size 2. Changes for sizes 4, 6, and 8 are in parentheses. Special Stitches Beg dc2tog (beginning double crochet decrease) = Ch 3, dc in next dc1 dc and 1 ch-space decreased. Beg scallop = Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), (dc, [ch 1, dc] twice) in indicated stitch or space. Beg 3-dc Cl (beginning 3 double crochet cluster) = Ch 2, yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook); yarn over, insert hook in same stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook. Scallop = (Dc, [ch 1, dc] 3 times) in indicated stitch or space. 3-dc Cl (3 double crochet cluster) = Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook); [yarn over, insert hook in same stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over, draw through all 4 loops on hook. Special Techniques Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook. Working with mesh yarn = Spread the yarn open with ladder edge at top and wider metallic edge at bottom. Continue to spread the yarn open as you work so that you can see the spaces of the top ladder edge. Stitches are made by inserting the hook into a hole at the top of ladder edge and pulling the uppermost strand through the loop(s) on the hook. Always insert the hook from the front to the back through each hole. Skip one hole between each stitch to ensure dense ruffles. Notes 1. Dress begins with one sleeve worked in joined rounds, then divides for yoke and neck opening, then rejoins for second sleeve worked in joined rounds. 2. Bodice begins at yoke edging on back loops. Skirt is worked from the bodice. Overskirt is worked from the yoke edging on front loops. 3. Snowflakes and flowers are made separately and sewn to overskirt. In each flower, the ruffled appearance is accentuated by skipping a hole between each stitch. This gathers the yarn into dense ruffles.

Is there a pattern for adult size?

I loved this dress as soon as I saw it!! But, as I am crocheting it, it says 6 inches for the head opening??? Is that a typo? I would like to finish this, please check and let me know. Thank you.

There is not a link attached to this post!

I have found you have to view this on a tablet or laptop. The link will not show up on a phone. Good luck!

Thank you so much for this darling pattern! My dearest friend has asked me to help her make this same costume for her precious daughter for Halloween. I have been so excited to help, and while I doubt we will use all of the pieces here, we will have the option of using as many as we choose! Thank you again!
