-1.5 inch button
-2 colors of your choice of medium weight yarn. I used “Terra Cotta” I Love This Yarn. (It’s a rusty orange) and “Cranberry” I Love This Yarn. (It’s a pretty rosey color)
-J-6.00 MM crochet hook
-Yarn needle for weaving in ends and attaching the button.
-Tulle (The amount of tulle used will vary.) I bought one roll of tulle that is already in the right width needed. But I also bought 3 yards of tulle that isn’t cut at all. The amount of tulle you will need will depend on how long or fluffy you want to make the tutu. I like to buy a tad more than I expect to need.. just to be safe.
-Ribbon (The ribbon is optional. I found some pretty orange ribbon and some ribbon with foxes on it.. too cute to pass up!)
Holding both strands of yarn together – I started with a FSC of 62. You will want to check the measurements for whom you are making the tutu for. I wrapped the FSC piece around my daughters hips to make sure it fit snuggly. As I have learned from the past.. they tend to stretch out a little after being worn the first time. You do not have to use a count of 62 FSC… if you need to make it smaller or larger.. adjust the number of FSC until you have the appropriate size.
CH 3. Turn. TRE into each FSC across.
CH 1. Turn. HDC into each stitch across.
Weave in your ends and attach your button. The entire row of step 2 can be button holes. 🙂
All that is left for you to do it attach the tulle and ribbon. If you do not know how to do this, check out my How To Make A TuTu tutorial for a step by step photo direction on attaching the tulle.
I cut my tulle to be about 2 feet long (and 6 inches wide). I did 1 orange for every 3 red pieces. After I joined tulle around the HDC stitches of step 3, I added a 2 foot piece of ribbon to the bottom of every 4th TRE stitch from step 2.
