Coogee Bay Dress by Jenny King

This thing was a nightmare. Not that it was necessarily hard. The hardest thing you had to do was a treble crochet stitch. What killed me was the repeating pattern of pineapples.

I ended up stopping several times to do other projects because I couldn’t stand pineapples anymore!

After four months I finally finished it, however. Sadly I wasn’t able to convince anyone to model for me this time around.

If you’d like to try your hand at it you can buy it here at Interweave Crochet.

      I confess I didn’t follow directions exactly on this. If you’re talking about joining the front and back panels together I joined as I went instead of following the directions.

      If you’re taking about joining one motif with the other you’ll start your round and when you get to the join part you’ll slip your hook into the motif you want to join to and make your st before continuing on.

      Gah! It’s been so long I can’t remember the exact pattern. I do remember it’s something like ch x, make x sts, ch 2, sc (that would be in the opposite motif!) ch 2, sc (in the 1st motif). You’ll be sts back and forth between the two motifs. My magazine had a few diagrams I found more helpful than the written directions.

      If this wasn’t helpful let me know (it probably wasn’t I haven’t had coffee yet) and I’ll dig out the pattern and get back to you.

  2. Can’t believe no one wanted to model in this. It’s gorgeous work! Well done.
