How to crochet a lace summer dress – video tutorial


Hello everyone, In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to crochet a lace summer dress. The written instruction how to make this dress is available at interunet.com/crochet-lace-summer-dress I’ll start crocheting the dress from the underbust down and for the size US 6, I will make a foundation chain of one hundred forty five chains or multiples of sixteen chains plus one additional chain. To crochet in the round, I will join it into a ring with the slip stitch. Then make three chains – one, two, three and work double crochet one into each chain to end of the round. At the end of the round, work one slip stitch into the third chain from the starting point – one, two, three. Slip stitch. Then, make three chains – second round, skip three chains (one, two, three) and work V-stitch. For that, double crochet one, make three chains, and again, double crochet one into the same base chain. Then just repeat the process – again, skip three chains – one, two, three and V-stitch. And then again – skip three chains, V-stitch. That way I will continue to end of the round. At the end of the second round, after last V-stitch, skip three chains, and into the very last chain, work double crochet one, then one chain, and double crochet one into the third chain after the starting point – one, two, three Double crochet one. Then make three chains. Count this like your first chain this double crochet, so one, two, three, four – skip four chains. Now, double crochet one, chain one, again into the same base chain, double crochet one, again, chain one, double crochet one, and then again – skip four chains, V-stitch, and then, just alternate – double crochet one, chain one, double crochet one, chain one, double crochet one above this V-stitch, and then, again regular V-stitch and skip four chains in between. At the end of the third round, after last double crochet one, chain one, double crochet one, chain one, double crochet one, finish the round like your second round – again skip four chains, double crochet one into the very last chain. Then make one chain and double crochet one into the third chain. Then again – make three chains and work fourth round like your second one, but now skip four chains instead of three. So, skip four chains, V-stitch, then again – skip four chains, V-stitch and so on. Finish the fourth round like your second round. Then, make three chains, work one V-stitch, and here, when you skip four chains, instead of V-stitch, work double crochet five into one chain. After the double crochet five into one chain, work three V-stitches. And then again, work double crochet five into one chain, then three V-stitches, and so on to end of the round. Round six. Make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. Then, three chains, skip two chains, double crochet two into one chain. Then double crochet one, make one chain, skip one chain and like a mirror reflection, work double crochet one, double crochet two into one chain. Then again, make three chains, skip two chains, double crochet one. Then, skip four chains, V-stitch. And then, just repeat the process. After the V-stitch, again skip four chains, double crochet one Then again, make three chains, double crochet two into one chain and so on. At the end of the round, after last double crochet one, skip, as usual, four chains, work double crochet one into the very last chain, chain one and double crochet one into the third chain. Then, make three chains, and skip four chains, double crochet one. Then, create three chains, Skip one chain, double crochet three. And just continue the pattern again – chain one, skip one chain, double crochet three. Then again, make three chains, skip one chain, double crochet one, V-stitch and so on. Eighth round. Make three chains, skip four chains, and work double crochet one. Then, make two chains, skip one chain, and work double crochet two into one chain. Work double crochet two, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two, then, double crochet two into one chain – just like here. Then, make two chains, skip one chain, double crochet one, V-stitch and so on. That’s what you should have so far. Ninth round. Make three chains, skip for chains, as usual, and work double crochet one. Then, make two chains, double crochet four. Then, make one chain, skip one chain, again double crochet four, and again, make two chains, double crochet one, skip four chains, V-stitch, and repeat the process again. Tenth round work like your ninth round. So, again double crochet four, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet four and so on. Eleventh round. Make three chains, skip four chains, and double crochet one Then, make three chains, and work one decrease. For that, pull the yarn through the next chain. Then, you have three loops on your hook. Pull the yarn through the first two loops on your hook. Then again, do one more time. Pull the yarn through the first two loops and when you have three loops on your hook, pull the yarn through all three loops on your hook. That way, I decreased one chain. Then work double crochet two, make one chain, skip one chain, and again double crochet two, and decrease. Then again, make three chains, double crochet one, skip four chains and V-stitch. Then just repeat the process. Again, skip four chains, double crochet one, make three chains, one decrease, double crochet two, and so on to end of the round. Twelfth round. Make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. Then, create three chains, skip one chain, double crochet three. Then, make one chain, skip one chain, again double crochet three. And then again, like a mirror reflection – make three chains, skip one chain, double crochet one. Then, skip four chains, V-stitch. And then again, skip four chains, double crochet one, three chains, skip one chain, double crochet three. and so on. Thirteenth round. Make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. Then, make four chains, skip one chain, decrease, double crochet one. Then again, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet one. decrease. And then again, make four chains, skip one chain, double crochet one, skip four chains, V-stitch, and again repeat the process. Fourteenth round. Make three chains, skip four chains, V-stitch. Then, make two chains, skip two chains and decrease all five chains. Pull the yarn through the six chains. Then again, make two chains, skip two chains, V-stitch. Then again, skip four chains, second V-stitch and so on. Just repeat the process what you did here. Work just V-stitches for the fifteenth round just like you did for the fourth one. And for my sixteenth round I will make three chains to pick up a height, and I will count it as my first double crochet. And then I will work just double crochet round. But now, I have more chains than my initial foundation chain of one hundred forty five chains. And I need just one hundred forty eight chains. So, my repeat will be double crochet four, skip one, again, double crochet four. I will repeat that nine times. Then again, double crochet one to have one hundred forty eight chains in total. At the end of the sixteenth round, after last double crochet four, work one more double crochet one. And work one slip stitch into the third chain. Seventeenth round. Make four chains, skip one chain, and work double crochet one. then just make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet one to end of the round. Again, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet one and so on. At the end of seventeenth round, after last double crochet one, make chain one, skip one chain, and work slip stitch into the third chain. Then make two chains – eighteenth round – and work cluster – yarn over, insert the hook into the same base chain, pull the yarn through. Then draw the yarn through the first two loops on your hook, and then one more time. Yarn over pull the yarn through, draw the yarn through the first two loops on your hook, and when you have three loops, draw the yarn through the three loops on your hook. Then, make one chain, skip one chain, and this time I will work cluster a little bit differently. So, I will do yarn over, pull the yarn through, and then draw the yarn through two loops on your hook and then repeat the process two more times. When I have four loops on my hook, I will draw the yarn through all four loops on my hook. And then I will just repeat the process. Make one chain, skip one chain, cluster. And I will repeat the process to end of the round. At the end of the eighteenth round, after last cluster, make one chain, skip one chain, and work slip stitch into the third chain. Then repeat seventeenth round. Twentieth round will be double crochet round, so make three chains, and work double crochet one into each chain to end of the round, and every thirty six double crochets, work double crochet two into one chain to increase one chain. At the end of the round you should have four chains more. After the double crochet round, you should have one hundred fifty two chains. Twenty first round I will work like my nineteenth round and then I will begin crocheting double crochet rounds increasing chains to have one hundred sixty chains in total or any other number dividable by sixteen. After you crochet about twenty six double crochet rounds, you should have one hundred sixty chains in total or if you want the dress to be wider, increase more chains, but the number should be dividable by sixteen chains. Then, repeat this pattern, second one, and then first one like a mirror reflection. After you crochet the desired length of the dress, work the bottom pattern. For that, make four chains and double crochet one into the same base chain. Make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. Then again make three chains, skip four chains, single crochet one, four chains, and again single crochet one into the same base chain. Then like a mirror reflection, make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. And then again make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one, chain one, double crochet one into the same chain, and one more time, chain one, double crochet one. Then just repeat the pattern. Again, make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one. And again, make three chains, skip four chains, single crochet one, four chains, single crochet one into the same base chain and so on. After the last double crochet one, make three chains, skip four chains, double crochet one into the very last chain. Then make one chain and slip stitch into the third chain. For the next round, make two chains and work double triple crochet into this opening, this arch of four chains. So, wrap the hook three times. One double triple crochet. Then, chain one, again, double triple crochet. And I will work chain one, double triple crochet until I have seven double triple crochets. After the seven double triple crochets, one chain in between, make two chains, skip nine chains, and work one single crochet. Then make two chains and in the following opening (arch), again, double triple crochet seven and so on. At the end of the round, make two chains, again skip nine chains, and into the very last chain, work one slip stitch. Then work two slip stitches, make five chains, skip one chain, double crochet one, and then make two chains, skip one chain, double crochet one to end of the arch. At the end of the arch, again make two chains, and skip this time three chains – one, two, three – and again, double crochet one, and continue regular way – two chains, skip one chain, double crochet one and so on. At the end of the round, after last double crochet, make two chains, and work one slip stitch into the third chain. Then work two slip stitches and bump. For that, three chains and slip stitch into the same base chain. Then again, I will work three slip stitches, and again bump, three chains and slip stitch into the same base chain. And that way I will continue to end of the round. Three slip stitches, bump, and again three slip stitches, bump and so on. That’s what you should have so far, seven double triple crochets, eight double crochets, and bumps. Now I will work from the underbust up. So, I attached the yarn to my initial foundation chain and work five double crochet rounds and increased four chains. Now I will show you how to work the front part. Make three chains to pick up a height and work double crochet one into the same base chain. Then work double crochet thirty seven or one fourth of the total number of chains. At the end of the first row, work two returning chains to decrease one chain. I will decrease one chain from my neck side and two chains from my arm side. Turn the work to the wrong side and insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four. And work double crochet to last three chains. At the end of the row, I will decrease two chains. For that, yarn over, pull the yarn through the first two loops on your hook, then skip one chain, and do the same draw the yarn through the first two loops on your hook. And pull the yarn through the three loops on your hook. That way I decreased two chains. Now work two returning chains and turn. Insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four, and work decrease again. So, pull the yarn through the first two loops on your hook, and then again yarn over, pull the yarn through the next chain. Pull the yarn through the first two loops on your hook, and then through the three loops on your hook. That way I again decreased two chains from this side, from the arm side. Then I will continue double crochet to end. At the end of the row, when I have just two chains left, skip one chain, double crochet one, and two returning chains. Then I will alternate my second and third rows. So, I will decrease one chain on this side and two chains on the other side. Again hook fourth chain – one, two, three, four double crochet to last three chains and so on. After the decrease, that’s what you should have and now I will show you how to make an opening for the tie. For that, make six chains and then triple crochet one, chain one, and again, triple crochet one. Just alternate chain one, triple crochet one. That’s what you should have so far. And now attach it to the wrong side of the garment. You may crochet it or sew it. Lastly, work slip stitches for the edges, and crochet a tie. For that, make a foundation chain of three hundred twenty two chains and crochet slip stitches in the round using both loops of the foundation chain. After you insert the tie into the openings, the dress is ready and thank you for watching.
