You will need:
You can sub any DK/Sports Weight yarn in your color choices I used: 5 (5, 6) skeins of Katia Cotton Ombre Yarn (dk/sport weight yarn #3)
Color: Greens
Fiber: 100% Cotton
Ball weight:150g/642yd (each skein is about 25g)

Crochet hook 2.75mm /C Scissors
Tapestry needle
Stitch markers Measuring Tape

Tip:
For Choosing yarns:
Don’t want to use or can’t find Katia Cotton Ombre you can sub another dk/sports weight yarn as longas it fits the gauge. Just choose 6 colors from the same family from light to dark, I used 5 of the 6 colors for the size 4-5 dress, the 6th color for the border edge of the neck.
On Changing Colors: To join your new colors through the skirt part of the pattern when instructed try doing so in the last st of the round like so:
Make your last sc, but don’t yo through the 2 loops to close the stitch, join your new color yarn by making a loop and grabbing it with your hook, pull it through the 2 loops to close the stitch. Now you are
all set to continue with the new color. Secure the old color and the new color then continue with the pattern.
Instructions:
With your hook and lightest color yarn make a slip knot and chain 92, (100, 108), sl st with the first ch, making sure not to twist your chain
Round 1: ch3 (counts as dc), dc in each ch around, do not join you will work in the round, using a stitch marker place it on the first st of the next round, be sure to move it up as you go. 92, (100, 108) dc in total.
Round 2: dc in each st around. 92, (100, 108) dc in total
Repeat Round 2 until your top measures 2 3⁄4 (3 1⁄4 , 4) inches, At the end of the last round you will make a

hdc in the next st and sl st in the next one, then Fasten off.
Shoulder straps:

Put your work so Row 1 is on the top, this is where you will build your shoulders from.
Then counting at the right side of your work count 8 (9, 9) st in, you will join your lightest color yarn in the 9th (10th,10th)st.
Row 1: ch3 (counts as dc), dc in the next 5 (7, 7) st, 6 (8, 8) dc total. Turn your workRow 2: ch3 (counts as dc) dc in the next 5 (7, 7) dc, 6 (8, 8) dc total. Turn your work.
Repeat row 2 until your work measures 9 1⁄2 (9 1⁄2, 10) inches measuring from Row 1 of your strap,

You will now turn your work inside out, so the wrong side is facing you. You will sl st the strap to the back of your top. Count 16 (18, 18) dc from the right side of your strap, in the 17(19th ,19th) st you will join your strap, sl st along the next 6, (8, 8) st of the strap and body of your dress, matching st for st. Once your strap is attached you will fasten off, turn your work right side to.
You will want to repeat all the steps of the shoulder strap for the second strap.

The Puff Shell pattern is worked in a multiple of 18, you will need to increase by 34,(44, 54) st, you can do this over the next 3 rows or in the first row, either way be sure to increase evenly. You will sc in the BLO throughout the pattern unless otherwise stated.
