röd klänning tunika bomull merceriserad 12/3 virkad red crochet tunic lace cotton yarn dressMy dress made from red crochet thread is finished! This crochet thread (12/3 (ca 340 m/50 gram) is most often used for doilies, but the thin mecerized cotton thread makes really lovely clothes - if you have the patience. I used hook 1,75 and appr. 425 gram yarn.

It's taken plenty of hours to finish this. I started the 2nd of April and finished the 10th of June, which is an eternal for me. I am a fast crocheter and used to finish a sweater in about 2 weeks. The dress is so light and nice - weighs almost nothing.

virkett röd virkgran 12/3 crochet thread yarn redI found the thread on SALE and it's Virkett 12/3. It's so nice to work with: The thread glides easily over the hook and the shining is beautiful. The result is really lacey and it's very comfortable to wear.

The trimming of the neck line is a couple of rows of single crochets.
