Cable Loop Dress

Here is the cable loop dress. Can be worn with the cable capelet from previous post.  I used the stitch pattern from  https://www.fairfieldworld.com/project/crocheted-cable-loop-pillow/.


Here is what the piece looks like before loops are woven together. It's a hot mess with all the loops hanging around, but it looks nice once it gets woven together. Note that I worked the piece flat and sewed up the back seam, but I am writing the instructions to be worked in the round.


GAUGE

9 sc = 1" (measuring from WS, without loops)
6 sc rows = 1" (measuring from WS, without loops)

MATERIALS

Size 6 (1.8 mm) steel hook
Size 10 thread in tea rose
3 large snaps

DIRECTIONS

NOTE: Even though piece is worked in the round, I still turn piece at end of each round to keep more easily to the pattern.

The loops that are formed will not be woven together until the last row, so make sure to keep loops all on the right side of piece as you are working. 

Round 1:  Ch 48, join ch tog to form ring, being careful not to twist ch, ch 1, sc in each ch around, join, turn. (48 sc)

Round 2: (Right Side of piece) Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12, (sc in next 4 sts, ch 12) 11 times, sc in last 2 sts, join, turn. (48 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Round 3: Ch 1, sc in each st around being careful to keep ch 12 loops on right side of piece, join, turn. (48 sc)

Rounds 4-5: Ch 1, sc in each st around, join, turn. (48 sc)

Rounds 6-37: Repeat rounds 2-5 eight more times. 

Row 38: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12, sc in next st, sc next 2 sts tog, (sc in next st, ch 12, sc in next st, sc next 2 sts tog) 10 times, sc in next st, ch 12, sc in last 2 sts,  turn. ( 37 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Rows 39-41: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (37 sc)

Row 42: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12, (sc in next 3 sts, ch 12) 11 times, sc in last 2 sts, turn.  (37 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Rows 43-45: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (37 sc)

Rows 46-49: Repeat rows 42-45 once more. (37 sc)

Row 50: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, (sc in next st, ch 12, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) 10 times, sc in next st, ch 12, sc in last 2 sts, turn. (48 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Rows 51-53: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (48 sc)

Row 54: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12, sc in next st, 2 sc in each of next 2 sts, (sc in next st, ch 12, sc in next st, 2 sc in each of next 2 sts) 10 times, sc in next st, ch 12, sc in last 2 sts, turn. (70 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Rows 55-57:  Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (70 sc)

Row 58: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, ch 12 sc in next st, (sc next 2 sts tog) twice, [sc in next st, ch 12, sc in next st, (sc next 2 sts tog) twice] 10 times, sc in next st, ch 12, sc in last 2 sts, turn.  (48 sc, 12 ch 12 loops)

Rows 59-61: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn.  (48 sc)

Row 62: Before working this round, weave all loops together (take second loop from bottom and pull through first loop, pull third loop through second loop, and so on, all the way to the top of dress). Ch 1, sc in first st, (sc in next 2 sts working both sts through loop to tack it down, sc next 2 sts tog) 11 times, sc in next 2 sts working both sts through loop to tack it down, sc in last st. (37 sc)

Row 63: Ch 1, sc in each st across.  Fasten off. (37 sc)

Finishing: Sew 3 snaps to back opening. Weave in all ends.
