Crochet Christmas Gifts - Rows 'o Ruffles Dress by Treva McCain
With Christmas quickly approaching, I have been crocheting my little heart out trying to get all my gifts completed. This is the first year I will be giving crochet or handmade gifts. I started out with a pretty ambitious list and have had to cut or switch some projects around in order to fit them all in before Christmas. I am really enjoying making all these gifts. I just hope those who
receive them will love them as much as I have loved making them.
I began my Christmas gift list with projects for the young girls in my family. I knew I wanted to crochet something for them, but I wasn't sure what they would like. I searched patterns for days trying to find the perfect pattern. I finally came across the Rows 'o Ruffles Dress pattern by Treva McCain for Caron. I wasn't thrilled with the colors, but I fell in love with the design immediately. I was especially thrilled with the
pattern because the recommended yarn is one of my favorites to work with--Caron Simply Soft.
The first dress I made was crocheted in Caron Simply Soft in Persimmon and Light Country Peach. I followed the pattern directly for this dress, making the body of the dress in two pieces
and sewing the pieces together.
was constructed. So the second dress was made in the same colors but all in one piece with a slightly larger hook. I also moved the ruffles a row closer together to give the dress more of a tutu look. I am pretty pleased with this dress also.
