Pink Sequin Outfit
Created by Kristi Sloan 2004





Materials:
Crochet Cotton thread, size 10
Size 7 crochet hook
601 5 mm cupped sequins, (This is the amount I used, but I always suggest stringing more, as they sometimes get stuck together, and its a lot easier to have extras then have to stop in the middle to string more.
Sewing needle and matching thread
3 snaps

Stitches Used:
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double crochet
Sequin sc = sc with a sequin, push sequin up to hook, then work sc as normal. When I work them in this way, they come out nice and flat.
