Keke Crochet Dress Free Pattern Page by Kristin Omdahl

This simple lace dress has gorgeous details in a low V back neckline and mirrored godet shaping for the skirt at center back. It is a top down construction so adjust the length of the skirt to be a top, tunic, mini skirt, midi skirt or a full length maxi skirt. You can also choose to add the low plunging V neckline to the front or back, or omit it all together and use the high neck yoke front for both the front and back. Sleeve instructions are also provided so you can choose sleeveless (as shown), or any length sleeves you like! So many possibilities with this gorgeous pattern. Two detailed charts provided as well.

    I am confused on row 3 of the UPPER BODY JOINING ROW. Row 2 is a double ch 3 round so there are two sets of ch 3 when you are done, normally the next round would be one set of chain three. But row 3 is the same as 2 but it does not mention the second set of ch 3. Do we skip over it or is this a type and rows 3 and 4 are reversed? Thank you
