Size: Child sizes 2-3 (4-5, 6-7) You will need: You can sub any DK/Sports Weight yarn in your color choices I used: For size 2/3 5 skeins of Katia Cotton Ombre Yarn (dk/sport weight yarn #3) Color: Blues Fiber: 100% Cotton Ball weight:150g/642yd this is for all 5 skeins (each skein is about 25g) For sizes 4/5, 6/7 you will need more yardage, so you may want to use: 5 skeins of Berroco Comfort DK (dk weight yarn #3) Color: Pick 5 colors ranging from light to dark Fiber: 50% Superfine Nylon/ 50% Superfine Acrylic Ball Weight: 50g/178yds per skein Crochet hook 2.75mm /C Scissors Tapestry needle Stitch markers Measuring Tape Stitches Used: Sc: single crochet Hdc: Half double crochet Dc: double crochet Ch: chain Instructions: Top: With your hook and lightest color yarn make a slip knot and chain 80, (104, 112), sl st with the first ch, making sure not to twist your chain. Round 1: ch1, hdc in each st around, Do not Join, you will work in the round. Place a stitch marker at the beginning of the round and remember to bring it up as you start each new round. Round 2: Hdc in each st around. Repeat Round 2 until your top measures 2 1⁄4 (3, 3 3⁄4 ) inches, At the end of the last round you will sl st with the next st, then Fasten off. Hide all loose tails. Shoulder Straps:
With your work folded in half you will join your straps in the first round you made. You will count 5 (6, 8) sts, from the right side, and in the next st you will join your work with the same light color. Row 1: ch2, hdc in the same sp, hdc in the next 7 (7, 9) st, you will have 8 (8, 10) hdc in total Turn your work. Row 2: ch2, hdc in each of the 8 st across. 8 (8, 10) Hdc in total. Repeat Row 2 until your strap measures 4 1⁄4, (4 3⁄4, 5) inches, Do not Fasten off. Turn your work wrong side facing you, from the left side of the strap you will count 10 (12, 16) st and place your stitch marker, count 9 (9, 11) more st from the marker and place another, you will join your strap in between these 2 markers. You will either join your strap with a sl st or sew them together with a tapestry needle. I chose to do mine with a sl st. Line up your strap in between the markers and you will match stitch for stitch from the strap to the body and sl st your way along. Fasten off hide all loose tails. Turn your work back to the right side facing you and repeat the same steps for the 2nd strap. Skirt: Put your work with the straps facing down. With the same color as your top you will want to join your yarn at one of the stitches at the side of your work. This next round will be an increase round, you will have 80, (104, 112) hdc you will want to increase to 105 (129, 138) st so you will increase 25, (25, 26) stitches evenly around. Round 1: ch1, sc around making sure to increase 25,(25, 26) stitches, sl st with the first sc. You will have 105 (129, 138) sc. Round 2: ch1, sc in the same st, *ch2, sk 2 st, sc in the 3rd * repeat from *to* around ending with a ch2, sl st with the first sc you made. Round 3: Join your next darkest color (Do not fasten off the Main color you will pick up again in the next round and every other round), ch4 (counts as first dc and ch1), *in the next ch2 sp make 3dc in it, ch1* repeat from *to* around sl st with the first dc you will make 2 more dc in that ch 2 sp, sl st with the top of the 3rd ch, join your Main color yarn leaving the 2 nd color in the back of your work you will pick it up in the next round.
Round 4: you will be working in the sc from Round 2
In that first sc from Round 2 you will make (dc, ch1, dc) *Find the next sc from round 2 make a V stitch (dc, ch1, dc)* repeat from *to* around, sl st with the top of the first dc. Round 5: with your main color yarn, sl st your way to the first ch1 sp of the V stitch from Round 4, pick up your 2 nd color, ch3(counts as first dc), make 2 more dc in the same sp, ch1, *in next ch1 sp of the V stitch make 3dc, ch1* repeat *to* around sl st with the first dc. Round 6: Drop the 2 nd color yarn and pick up the Main color yarn, you will now work your new stitches into the space between the V stitches of Round 4
In that space you will make a V stitch (dc, ch1, dc), you will repeat that all around making a V stitch in the space between V stitches from Round 4, sl st with the first dc. Rounds 7-10 (7-12, 7-14): You will repeat Rounds 5 and 6 At the end of Round 10, (12, 14) fasten off the 2 nd color yarn, keeping the Main color attached, you will use this throughout the dress. For the next section you will Join your 3rd color yarn and continue in pattern. Rounds 11-20 (13-24, 15-27): Repeat Rounds 5 & 6, for this section you will be switching back and forth from the Main color and the 3rd color not the 2nd color. Note: If you run out of the Main color, no worries just use the rest of the next lightest color. For the next section you will Join your 4th color yarn and continue in pattern. Rounds 21-30 (25-36, 28-41): Repeat Rounds 5 & 6, for this section you will be switching back and forth from the Main color and the 4 th color not the 2nd color. For the next section you will Join your 5th color yarn and continue in pattern. Rounds 22-40 (37-48, 42-55): Repeat Rounds 5 & 6, for this section you will be switching back and forth from the Main color and the 5 th color not the 2nd color. For all sizes repeat Round 6, fasten off and hide all loose tails. You can leave your dress as is or work a Border around the free edge of the top of the dress. Border: Choose the color you want for your border, joining at the back of the dress at the neck edge, ch1, sc in each st across until you reach the first strap, you will work a sc in each side row of the strap, sc in each st of the front of the neck and sc in each row of the second strap sc until you reach the first ch and sl st with it and fasten off your work. For the armhole opening you will join the same color yarn you used for your neck edge border and join in any of the st of the underarm, ch1, sc until you reach the strap, sc in each of the side rows, sc until you reach the first sc, sl st and fasten off. Repeat for the other armhole opening and you are done. You have created this Moroccan Style Ombre Dress!

You will now Repeat Rows 18-24 7 more times, you will have 9 sunshine blocks on your shawl. You can make more or less of Rows 18-24, depending how long you wish to have your shawl. Just remember to complete the 7 rows before you end your shawl.
Do Not Fasten off, you will make a sc edging around your shawl.

Single Crochet Border
Along the sides of your rows you will work 3 sc in each rows edge st, if the row ends with a Tr or ch you will work 3 sc in each one, work like that all along the edges of your shawl, making a sc in each st along the bottom, then work up the other side of your rows, once you reach the top, make 3 sc in the corner then sc in the stitch as they present themselves, when you reach a ch2 make 2 sc in it, when you get to a ch5 make 4 sc in the ch otherwise sc in each st as it presents itself to you, when you reach the last corner you will make 3 sc sl st with the first sc you made. DO NOT FASTEN OFF. Put your work aside for now and work on your Pom Poms below.
NOTE: If you are not adding the Poms you can finish off your shawl now, fasten off and hide all loose tails. If you are adding the Poms continue below.
Pom Poms
You will need about 96-100 for the size I made
Using your Pom/Edging yarn make a slip knot,
Round 1: ch2, make 8sc in the 2nd ch from your hook, sl st with the first sc you made.
Round 2: ch1, 2sc in each st around. 16sc no need to sl st with the first sc, you can use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of your rounds if you need to.
Round 3: sc in each st aroundRound 4: sc2tog all around you will have 8 sc
Round 5: sc in each st, fasten off, leaving a long enough tail to sew the hole closed later. Lightly stuff your pom and with your tapestry needle sew the hole closed. Hide all loose tails.
Once you have your Poms made grab your shawl and hook, now lets begin our Border.
Pom Pom Border:
*ch3, grab a pom pom, sl st through any st of the pom, ch3, sk 3 sc from the edging and sc in the 4th st, * repeat from *to* around until you reach the first ch3, sl st with the base of the ch3 and fasten off your work. Hide all loose tails and you are done.

Now it is time to Assemble your sleeves to your body,

 you will lay your pieces wrong side facing you, the middle of your sleeves should line up with the seam of the shoulders (see pic below)
You will now slip stitch your sleeves to the body of your sweater like you did for the shoulder seam, matching stitch for stitch, repeat for the other sleeve.
Assemble Sides and Sleeve seams

with your work still facing the wrong side to you, you will fold the sweater in half lining up the sleeves and the side seams, you will now slip stitch together matching stitch for stitch starting at the sleeve, working your way up to the armhole and then down the side seam to the bottom edge of your sweater, Repeat for the other side and hide all loose tails. Be sure to turn your work right side out when you are done.
You can leave your sweater as is or finish it off with an edging as follows.
Pom Pom and Picot Edging (for all sizes):

page2image1675200page2image3670848page2image3672512page2image1659184page2image1646912
Once your circle is cut you will now take your ruler and marker and mark every 1⁄2 inch or so, making sure that you have a multiple of 3 dots around the leather circle.
With your Leather punch you will punch out your dots about 1⁄2 inch in from the edge.

Body of the Bag:
Now you will work the body of the bag with your main color yarn (natural).
Round 1: Take your smaller hook and yarn and put it in one of the holes on your leather circle, wrap your yarn around your hook and pass the yarn through the hole, make a ch, in the next hole you will make a sc, repeat that around for each hole make a sc in each hole, making sure that you dont make your sc too tight, sl st with the first sc you made.
Round 2: (switch to larger hook) ch1, sc in the same st, *ch2, sk 2 st, sc in the 3rd * repeat from *to* around ending with a ch2, sl st with the first sc you made.
Grab your next color for your bag (White Asparagus)
Round 3: Join your color (Do not fasten off the Cream Color you will pick up again in the next round), *in the ch2 sp make 3dc in it, ch1* repeat from *to* around sl st with the first dc, join your Cream yarn leaving the (White Asparagus) in the back of your work you will pick it up in the next round.
Round 4: you will be working in the sc from Round 2

In that first sc from Round 2 you will make (dc, ch1, dc)

*Find the next sc from round 2 make a V stitch (dc, ch1, dc)* repeat from *to* around, sl st with the top of the first dc.
Round 5: picking up your (White Asparagus) yarn again, sl st in the first ch1 sp of the V stitch from Round 4, ch3(counts as first dc), make 2 more dc in the same sp, ch1, *in next ch1 sp of the V stitch make 3dc, ch1* repeat *to* around sl st with the first dc.
Round 6: Drop the White Asparagus yarn and pick up the Cream yarn, you will now work your new stitches into the space between the V stitches of Round 4

In that space you will make a V stitch (dc, ch1, dc), you will repeat that all around making a V stitch in the space between V stitches from Round 4, sl st with the first dc.
Rounds 7-14: You will repeat Rounds 5 and 6
At the end of Round 14 fasten off the White Asparagus yarn, keeping the Cream color attached, you will

use this throughout the bag.
For the next section you will Join your Reed color yarn and continue in pattern.
Rounds 15-26: Repeat Rounds 5 and 6, at the end of Round 26 fasten off the Reed yarn.
You will now Join your Silver yarn and continue in pattern again as follows:
Rounds 27-38: Repeat Rounds 5 and 6, at the end of Round 38 fasten off the Silver yarn.
You will now join your last color Gray and continue in pattern:
Rounds 39-50: Repeat Rounds 5 and 6, You will end your bag with a round of Cream V stitches. At the end of Round 50 fasten off the Gray and Cream yarn and hide all loose tails.
Adding the Hardware:
Fold your bag in half and at the 2 last rows of your Silver yarn you will attach your D rings. You can sew them or Crochet them on like I have.

With your Silver yarn and larger hook, you will pass your hook through the stitch of the bag then under the D ring, grab the yarn with the hook, and draw through the stitch, you will then ch1, remember to work around the st and the Ring, make 2 sc in each st from Rounds 36-38, once you have about 12 st you are going to fasten off.

Sew in all the loose tails in the back of your work. Repeat this again for the other D ring on the other side of your bag.
You can now line your bag, I had my amazing mother in law line mine, she put something stiff at the bottom, and put the fabric up to the last Round of the Silver color. Its best to have it lined as things can fall out of our crochet projects. Of course, if you cant line yours, use cosmetic bags with zippers to hold your little items.
Attach the Leather Drawstring Tassel:
Pass one end through your bag about every 2 V stitches at the Rounds where the Gray and Silver meet. Attach the tassel, add your Straps and you are done with your Beautiful Bag.
