HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).

If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin, to make the pattern easier to follow. Size adjustments are added under “Size & Measurements”.

FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC):

Written description:

Step 1: Ch 2 st.

Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook. Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches.

*2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

 

Video tutorial.

 

 

DOUBLE TREBLE CROCHET STITCHES PLACEMENT:

When crocheting the DTR stitches in the corners, follow these instructions:

Reach the stitch from the back of the 2 ch on the previous row & skip them.

 

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED: 


You will need to know how to change colors in crochet with different color on different rows.

 

CHANGING COLOR WITH DIFFERENT COLOR ON DIFFERENT ROWS:

When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row with one color, with the color you where working with. Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this for every row you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.

  6. I would love to make this dress but I’m still learning and I wonder if ‘easy’ is easy enough for me to attempt.

    • This has skill level intermediate 🙂 I describe it as easy, because I think that you absolutely could make it if you know how to follow easy patterns as well. The stitches isn’t that hard, but you will have to know how to crochet in the back loop.
      What might be a challenge would be increases & decreases if you haven’t tried that before 🙂
