June 1973 - The Winner
The Jiffy Lace Baby Set started out strong but the dress ended up having double the votes as the baby set. The winning June pattern last year was also a dress!
This pattern calls for 6 ounces of sport weight yarn, a Susan Bates crochet hook size G, a 3/8 inch button and a tapestry needle.
I’ll be using Knit Picks Brava Sport in red. I think I have about 5 ounces of this so I may shorten the dress or make the sleeves a different color. I have the exact hook (Bates hooks aka in-line hooks are some of my favorites) they suggest so I’ll definitely use it.
The dress is made in pieces. The front and the back are sewn together and then the sleeves are added so it looks pretty easy. Hopefully it is because I'm going to try to get another project done by next weekend. The bonus project!
Last week I mentioned that I didn’t have the “yarn” to do the bag and my lovely sister-in-law sent me the yarn! The Multi-Shaded Bag will be a bonus project this month.
I’ve started the bag and the polypropylene yarn is really interesting to use. And the pattern for the bag? That is also “interesting” but I’ll save the details for next week.

I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
