Crochet tension: 24 sts (= tr) x 13 rows in Alpaca on hook no. 3 = 10 x 10 cm

Knitting tension: 16 sts x 20 rows on needles size 5.5 mm with Alaska in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm

Binding off tips-1:
Bind off 1 tr as follows: Crochet 2 tr tog. This means crochet 1 tr but wait with the last yrh and pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet 1 tr in the next tr and pull the last yrh through all 3 sts on hook.

Binding off tips-2:
Bind off as follows at beginning of row: Replace 1 dc/tr with a sl st.
Bind off as follows at the end of row: Turn the piece when number of dc/tr left on row = number of st to bind off and crochet back.
Crochet info: At the beginning of each row with tr replace 1st tr with 3 ch and at the end of row crochet the last tr in the 3rd ch from beginning of previous row. Crochet in to each tr (not in between).

DRESS:
Front piece: Read Crochet info! Crochet 106-116-126 (135-145) ch loosely (inclusive of 3 ch to turn with) on hook no. 3 and old rose Alpaca.
Crochet first row as follows: 1 tr in the 4th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, 1 tr in the next 3 ch* , repeat from *-* until end of row –NB: In size 1/3 month + 12/18 month finish with a tr in each of the last 5 ch (instead of the last 3 ch) in Size 2 years finish with a tr in each of the last 6 ch (instead of the last 3 ch) ) and in Size 3/4 years finish with a tr in each of the last 4 ch = 79-86-94 (101-108) tr, turn the piece.
Continue to crochet 1 tr in to each tr at the same time bind off 1 tr each side a total of 12 times – see bind off tips – 1: on Size 1/3 month: alternate between every and every other row, Size 6/9+ 12/18 month: On every other row and Size 2 + 3 /4 years: On every 3rd row = 55-62-70 (77-84) tr. When the piece measures approx. 17-22-27 (32-35) cm bind off for armhole each side on every row – see bind off tips-2: 5 tr 1 time, 2 tr 1 time and 1 tr 3 times = 35-42-50 (57-64) tr. When the piece measures 23-29-35 (40-44) cm insert a marking thread in the middle of the piece (For size 1/3 month and 2 years insert a marking thread in the middle st). Then bind off for the neck as follows: Crochet from the shoulder and in towards the neck until 2-3-5 (5-6) tr left before the marking thread (for size 1/3 month and 2 years the number of tr is before the tr with the marking thread) turn the piece.
