Carson Crochet Dress Pattern

May 5, 2019

The Carson Crochet Dress Pattern is a pretty spring dress! I designed this dress for my daughter Carson. She had a lot of say in the design of her new dress. She wanted it pretty, pink, and ruffle-y. This dress is written in 5 kids sizes: XS (5), S (6/6X), M (7/8), L (9/10), XL (11/12)

The Carson dress is a fun a girly dress! I love the length! You can easily add as many rows as you want to make it longer. I used less than 1 skein of Lion Brand Ice Cream Big Scoop yarn for a size Small (6/6X). So that means there’s no ends to weave in! Score!

The sleeves are created in the next round.

Round 23 (24) [25] {26} <27>: sc in each stitch to the ch 2 space, sc in ch 2 space, ch 3, sc in next ch 2 space (skipping an entire side, this will be the first sleeve), sc in each stitch to next ch 2 space, ch 3, sc in next ch 2 space (this is the second sleeve), sc in remaining stitches (122, (130) [138] {146} <154> sc)

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!! I’ve been looking for a pattern like this for awhile and couldn’t find one that was just right; this is just perfect!!

  1. hello Breann
    Is there a way of getting the size down to a 3 year old as my niece 7 has picked this dress for her and her sister to wear to a special party in june. would using a smaller hook and thinner yarn work, as I have no idea how the maths work on sizing. I would be grateful for any help you may be able to give me, a very grateful (Aunty Debbie) and follower

    1. Hi! You could use sport weight yarn and go down a hook size. That might make it small enough 🙂 Or each size has a foundation row difference of 6 stitches. So you could start with 48 for row 1. Let me know which route you go with 🙂 If you end up using the 48 stitches for row 1, I can help you with the numbers for round 3

  2. Hi there Breann. I’ve just started this and have a question and it might just be me, but on Round 3, after completing the last 2sc, ch2, 2sc; I only have 12 stitches left in the round. You say to sc in the remaining {86} stitches for the size I’m making…. Did I miss an increase somewhere?

    In the next round (Round 4) you begin increasing and in a first pass at this, I would then have 86 stitches – not the 94 the pattern states – as each round done in this manner increases the stitch count by 8. Are the instructions missing something or am I? I’m totally sure it’s me and hopefully I explained myself well enough for you to understand! lol

    Thanks for the cute pattern AND taking your time to read this and reply. 🙂

      1. Thanks! I went back and re-read the instructions with your above statement and I totally see what you were saying now. lol Crazy how something so simple can throw you for a loop sometimes. 😀

    1. I started this without the foundation row but a sc row. It is now rolling a bit. Is there anything I can do to stop this?

      1. Hi! The single crochet will cause rolling. Once your create the sleeves it will help and then when you get to the bottom portion of the dress it should stop rolling completely 🙂

  3. I am so excited to try this dress for my granddaughter! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern plus the others you are sharing in your Spring Fling event. You are an amazing designer.
