I made this for my niece for the olympics.
Here's a bad closeup of the flowers that are on the bottom of the shirt and around the crown of the hat.
I had a hard time with the hat. I crocheted it with soft sport weight yarn and carried a size 10 cotton thread with it, to try to keep it a bit more rigid (it's ok).
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I wish white looked that great on me! (Don't mind the cruddy pics or how messy my room is. I was trying to crank out a bunch of stuff, but I wanted to be sure I got pictures of her in it while I was still thinking of it.
Hope you like it!
ETA: Flower Motif
I hope this makes sense to everyone, I'm not the best at writting out patterns. If you have questions or if you see a goof, let me know. This is also just for one motif, so if you were making a summer top or hat like I did, you would make multiples in a row of these. Anyway, here you go
R1-Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each ch across. Turn (12 dc)
R2- Ch3 which counts as first dc, 1 dc in each dc to end. Turn (12 dc)
R3 & R4- Repeat R2
R5- ch 3, 1 dc in each of next 4dc, ch2, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in each of next 5 dc. Turn
R6- ch3, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 6, skip (2dc, 2ch, 2dc,) 1 dc in each dc to end. Turn
R7- ch3, 1dc in each of the next 2 dc, ch3, sl st around ch-6 loops of previous rows, ch3, 1 dc in the last 3 dc. Turn (This can be tricky, look at pic above to see what I did
R8- ch3, 1dc in each of the next 2dc, 2dc in next ch3-sp, ch2, 2dc in next ch3-sp
R9- ch3, 1 dc in each dc & ch across, turn(12dc total)
R10-12- repeat R2
I hope this is clearer than mud for you
