I chose to use smaller Balls of Wolltraum yarn in Color Madness No. 9, this allowed for the colors to change often throughout the dress, giving it that Mermaid effect. You can choose to use the Larger skeins, but note the ombre effect will differ for each size and yarn that you choose.

Choose Your Cup Size:
To Begin your Dress, first you must choose your Cup size below. There are 2 options to choose from. Make 2 for the cup size you need, then move on to the Joining Triangles and clothing size for the rest of your Dress.

With your hook and MC yarn make a slip knot and chain 14Row 1: in the 2nd ch from hook hdc, hdc in next 11 st, in the last ch make (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc), DO NOT TURN! Work on the other side of your base chain, hdc in each of the 12 st, turn your work. You will have 28 hdc
Row 2: ch1, hdc until you reach the ch2 sp, (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc) in the ch2 sp, hdc until you reach the last st, Turn your work. You will have 32st.

Large-XL (cup size D, DD)*note: by making a smaller ch for the Larger Cup sizes, you will be able to attain width for better coverage. If you just made the smaller cup size to get width your height would be longer than desired.

Row 1: in the 2nd ch from hook hdc, hdc in next 7 st, in the last ch make (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc), DO NOT TURN! Work on the other side of your base chain, hdc in each of the 8 st, turn your work. You will have 20 hdc

Test to see if it covers your cup size, if you need to add more or less do so now. Fasten off at the end of

the Row of your Size Triangle.
Repeat for the Second triangle but DO NOT Fasten off for the second Triangle, Continue below to Join the Triangles together and to determine your body size.
Joining the Triangles togetherWe all come in different shapes and sizes, crochet is amazing for the fact you can manipulate it to fit your specific body type. Once you have your Triangles made you will now pick the size closest to your chest measurements, this is the measurement over the largest part of your breast and around your back.
Example if you made the larger cup but wear a small dress size you will follow the small st count.

Some may have a cup that is smaller and a chest measurement that is larger. It is possible that your Triangles won’t sit on your breast just right, no worries it's an easy fix. You would just need to add more to the center chain, in doing so you will need to take away 1 sc from each Triangle according to your size and add 2 extra ch to the center.
If it still doesn’t fit, keep adjusting, by removing more sc evenly from each triangle and adding them to the center ch, until you find the perfect fit. Don’t worry about the back ch, work that as written in the pattern for your size. Once you’ve found your best fit you will continue with the body of the pattern as written for your size.
EX: If you’re an A cup but your chest is a Medium. According to that size, the center ch has 5 and the triangles have 44 sc per triangle. You will take 1sc off from each triangle and add the 2 removed st to the center ch, Now you would have 43 sc per triangle and 7 ch for the center.
Attaching the Triangles and forming the front and back:

Joining the Triangles together
page3image2550080 page3image2550272
We all come in different shapes and sizes, crochet is amazing for the fact you can manipulate it to fit your specific body type. Once you have your Triangles made you will now pick the size closest to your chest measurements, this is the measurement over the largest part of your breast and around your back.
Example if you made the larger cup but wear a small dress size you will follow the small st count.
Some may have a cup that is smaller and a chest measurement that is larger. It is possible that your Triangles won’t sit on your breast just right, no worries it's an easy fix. You would just need to add more to the center chain, in doing so you will need to take away 1 sc from each Triangle according to your size and add 2 extra ch to the center.
If it still doesn’t fit, keep adjusting, by removing more sc evenly from each triangle and adding them to the center ch, until you find the perfect fit. Don’t worry about the back ch, work that as written in the pattern for your size. Once you’ve found your best fit you will continue with the body of the pattern as written for your size.
EX: If you’re an A cup but your chest is a Medium. According to that size, the center ch has 5 and the triangles have 44 sc per triangle. You will take 1sc off from each triangle and add the 2 removed st to the center ch, Now you would have 43 sc per triangle and 7 ch for the center.
Attaching the Triangles and forming the front and back:


R 1: ch1, pick up 36 (40, 44, 48, 56, 61, 66, 69, 73) sc evenly across the bottom of your triangle,
Ch4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 7, 7, 9, 9), grab the 2nd triangle, pick up 36 (40, 44, 48, 56, 61, 66, 69, 73) sc evenly across the bottom of your Triangle, ch74 (84, 99, 109, 114, 123, 139, 147, 157), being careful not to twist, sl st with the ch1 from the first Triangle top of this Round.
The Body:
