Originally conceived to be worked with embroidery floss, this crochet dress is made from nine-yard strands of a sock yarn spun with Outlast, designed to acclimate to your body’s temperature. Try working it in several neutrals for a different look. This easy crochet dress, worked in half double crochet, is a great project for a beginning crocheter.
