Step by step Pattern

Back Panel

  • The back panel is made first using a size ‘H’ hook.
  • Row 1: Starting from the 5th chain from the hook, perform a dc in each chain across.
  • Row 2: Chain 4 (this counts as dc + ch 1), skip the stitch the chain 4 comes out of, then skip the next stitch. Repeat ‘dc in next st, ch 1, skip 1 st’ across. In top of chain 4 turning chain, dc. Turn.
  • Row 3: Chain 3 (this counts as dc). In chain-1 space, dc. Dc in each stitch across. Dc in the chain-4 space. In the third chain of the chain 4 from previous row, dc. Turn.
  • Row 4: Chain 1, sc in the same stitch chain-1 comes out of. Repeat ‘ch 3, MCS in the side of the sc, skip 2 sts, dc in next st, ch 4, MCS in the first chain of the chain 4, skip 2 sts, sc in next stitch’ across. The last sc of the row is worked into the top of the chain 3 turning chain.
  • Row 5: Chain 8. In the 5th chain from Hook, MCS. Sc in dc from the previous row, ch 3, MCS in the side of the sc. Repeat across, ending with a tc in 1st sc made of the previous row.
  • Row 6: Chain 1, sc in same chain 1 space. Repeat ‘ch 2, dc in sc between petals, ch 2, sc in between next set of petals, ch 2’ across. Sc in the 4th turning chain of the previous row.
  • Row 7: Chain 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in chain-2 space. Dc in the next stitch. Repeat ‘2 dc in chain-2 space’ across. Dc in sc from previous row.
  • Repeat Row 2 – Row 7 for the pattern up to the desired length, then finish off and weave in ends.

Side Panels

  • The side panels are made in the same way as the back panel. Make two side panels using an ‘H’ hook. Create the side panels to the same length as the back panel, then finish off and weave in the ends.


  • Use a tapestry needle and yarn to seam together the three panels. Trim is then added around the armholes and the main body opening to finish off the garment.
