NOTE: This pattern is a multiple of 12 for the beginning ch, you can easily manipulate this if the size above doesn’t fit your body type, by adding more or less ch you may also need to adjust the amount of ch1 sp you skip for the armhole shaping.
Instructions:
You will begin by working on the Yoke of the dress.


Make a slip knot and ch 90 (102,108), place a st marker, ch 90 (102, 108) more (180, 204, 216 total) sl st with the first ch forming a circle, making sure not to twist your chain.
Round 1: ch3 (counts as dc), dc in same st, dc in each ch until you reach your st marker, in the ch the st marker is in make [2dc, ch3, 2dc], dc in each ch until you reach the ch3, make 2dc, ch3 in the same sp as the ch3, sl st with the top of the ch3.
Round 2: ch4 (counts as dc, ch1), sk a dc, dc in the next, *ch1, sk a st, dc in next st* repeat from *to* until you reach the ch3, ch1, in the ch3 sp make [dc, ch3, dc] , ch1, dc in the first dc after the ch3, repeat from *to* until you reach the next ch 3 sp, ch1, in the ch3 sp make [dc, ch3, dc], ch1, sl st in the 3rd ch from the first 4 ch at the beginning of the round.
Round 3: ch3(counts as dc) make 4 more dc in same st (drop your st and pass your hook in the first dc, pass it back through the dropped st, sl st together, ch1 [Bobble st made]), dc in the ch sp, dc in next dc, dc in next ch sp, *Make another bobble in next dc (5dc in same st, drop your st, count 5 st, pass your hook in the 5th st, back onto the dropped st, sl st together, ch1), dc in ch1, dc in next dc, dc in ch1* repeat from *to* until you reach the ch3 sp, in the ch3 sp [2dc, ch3, 2dc], Repeat from *to* again until you reach the next ch3 sp, make [2dc, ch3, 2dc] in it, work dc in the dc and ch sp until you reach the first bobble, sl st at the top of the bobble.
Round 4: Repeat Round 2 and fasten off.

Now you will no longer be working in the round, you will be creating the opening for your armholes, working the front and the back separately in rows.
Front armhole shaping

Now you will grab 2 stitch markers and from the ch3 sp, count 15 (17, 18) ch1 sp openings from the ch3 sp on both sides, place your st markers in the ch1 sp.
