- Odd rounds = RS
- When there is no stitch count present at the end of a round, this means it has the same number of stitches as the previous row.
- This pattern is worked in one piece from top-down using mostly sc. Working from top-down allows you to make your own special changes and customizations for the bottom of the dress. Make this dress any length you like or make a simple tee instead by stopping after any row you like... Feel free to get creative!
- I have rated this as a beginner crochet pattern because the stitches are simple. However, due to the small nature of this tiny doll dress, you may find it a challenge to crochet, and it may require a little more patience and concentration to complete.
