Butterfly/Azalea Dress

I've created a new dress from the Butterfly Top and Azalea Dress, basically you start with the butterfly top, then after about 3 or 4 rows of DC you add the shells of the azalea dress.


I've also got a couple of blankets done.

I am currently working on a combo Call the Midwife/Dragonfly Blanket. I used Lionbrand Mandala yarn to make the blankets above and the one I am working on now. I've also been doing a lot of beading which is why I haven't posted here much.
Here are some of my bracelets. Some are done on memory wire and some are crocheted with beads.

Nubbie Stitch Preemie Blanket








18”X18”
Size I hook
One skein of I Love This Yarn, I used just about the whole skein.

Pattern uses a multiple of 2 stitches if you want to adjust the size

Ch 60 loosely-

Row 1: (right side) Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each ch across.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st sc, *tr in next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from *
Across.

Row 3: ch 1 turn, sc across.

Repeat rows 2 & 3 until blanket is square. Mine was 18” x 18”.
I counted 29 “nubs” across, so I worked until I had 29 “nubs” to the top.

So if you don’t have a ruler handy, this is an easy way to count.

You can also work it until it is a rectangle that would look nice too, but
You will need more yarn.

Sweater with Buttonband


Baby Yarn
Size G hook

Size: newborn




Chain 36

Row 1:

dc in 4th ch from hook and next 3 chs,

3 dc in next ch,

dc in next 5 chs,

3 dc in next ch,

dc in next 10 chs,

3 dc in next ch,

dc in next 5 chs,

3 dc in next ch,

dc in last 5 chs.

ch 2, turn.



rows 2-5: dc in each dc across putting 3dc in center dc of 3dc group below. Ch 2, turn.



row 6: dc across to center of first 3dc group, ch 4, skip across to next 3dc, dc in center st and each st across to center st of 3rd dc group, ch4, skip to last 3dc put dc in center of 3dc group and across to end. ch 2, turn. *Armhole construction tutorial*



row 7: dc in each dc and chain across. ch 2, turn.



rows 8-15: dc in each dc across. Ch 2, turn.



First a few comments on the buttonband for you before you get started. The buttonband is worked up and down the fronts of the sweater for 3 rows. On this sweater I see that I worked 2 sc in the end of each row but sometimes that makes a wavy edge so I do 2sc in one row and 1sc in the next, so its not too tight I go up one size hook for the edging. Also depending on the size of the buttons you will have to adjust how many chain spaces you will need to fit the button. And how many buttons you are using, make the same amount of holes (obviously:).



.Buttonband: work sc up right side of sweater following instructions at the beginning of the pattern. Ch 1 turn, sc in first st, work buttonhole, sc in next. Work down front placing buttonholes accordingly. Ch 1 turn work sc in each sc and chain space up front of sweater.

At top corner put 3sc and work sc around the neckline, put 3sc in corner st, work 3 rows of sc down and up and down the front left side. Put 3sc in bottom corner and sc across bottom edge. Finish off.



Sleeves: join yarn to center stitch at bottom on armhole, DC around.

Work 10 rows total for sleeves

Row11, sc around sleeve.
