Meet Courtney Whitehead
Creations By Courtney is your destination for discovering crochet garment and accessory patterns for curating a handmade closet.
Courtney is the owner and designer of Creations By Courtney. She had a dream to be a fashion designer, which didn’t happen, but she has always been a creative person.
As an avid crocheter with a passion for garments, she is inspired to offer crochet designs to help you curate your own handmade closet of tops, cardigans, bottoms, dresses, and stylish, practical accessories that will withstand any current and future fashion trends.
The garment crochet patterns are offered in sizes Small to 5X. Each pattern has been tech edited and/or patterned tested to ensure the accuracy of numbers and writing. If a pattern doesn’t specify all of the plus sizes, instructions are given on how to customize the final dimensions to fit your unique body.
Inspiration is found from runways, department stores and often nature. Courtney tends to offer several designs with a fun stitch, so it’s great for mastering the stitches as you create multiple Creations By Courtney designs.
Courtney doesn’t like seaming multiple pieces together like many other crocheters, so she strives to create seamless or mostly seamless crochet designs. She wishes to help you increase your crochet skill through the use of foundation stitches in other ways than just the first row, or extended stitches, crossing stitches and more.
Besides increasing your skill, Creations By Courtney hopes that you’ll gain confidence and feel proud while wearing or gifting the completed items. And if you’ve pondered making more colorful projects, you’ll love these crochet patterns even more.

- Medium: 40” circumference x 20.5” tall
Approx. 8.6 dc = 4”, 4 rows of dc = 4”
Make a gauge swatch by making a swatch of at least 6” x 6” dc stitches and make the first row with fdc

- dc: double crochet
- tr: treble
- X-St: x stitch
- CSDC: chainless starting double crochet
- Str: starting treble crochet
- YO: yarn over

CSDC: pull up a loop to the height of the stitch, holding loop, YO (by wrapping around hook), insert hook in first stitch, YO, pull up a loop, [YO, pull through 2 loops] twice
Str: sc in first stitch without a chain 1, insert hook through middle of first sc and under 2 loops, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops, [insert hook through middle of last sc and under 2 loops, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops] twice
X-St: each X-St is followed by a treble as follows – YO 2 times, insert hook in next stitch, YO, pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), YO, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), YO (4 loops on hook), skip next 2 stitches, insert hook in next stitch, YO, pull up a loop (5 loops on hook), [YO, pull through 2 loops] four times, chain 2, YO, insert hook from right to left under two loops in center of the X (not under the legs of the X), YO, pull up a loop, [YO, pull through 2 loops] twice.

The treble crochet is placed in the next stitch (5th stitch of row below). Click here for tutorial.
How to join Fdc in the round: For final fdc, YO and insert hook through foundation chain, YO and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), insert hook through foundation of first st (starting ch-3), YO and pull through two loops (3 loops on hook), [YO, pull through two loops] twice, sl st to 3rd ch to join
- Pattern is written in US terms
- Be careful to twist Row 1 only once before completing the last fdc
- After the first row, each round is worked along the top and bottom before joining due to the twist.
- Each X-St is followed by a tr, so the Str counts as the tr for the last X-St, and all X-Sts and tr cover 5 stitches.
- The circumference can be adjusted by adding or subtracting multiples of 5.
- The height can be adjusted by adding or subtracting rounds.
