Barbie crochet summer dress and hat


The pattern is for a dress for Barbie worked in continuous rounds from the top down.  

I used Patons 4ply soft cotton so its important to check tension if using a different 4ply yarn as any slight variation can make a big difference in the size. Crochet cotton is not suitable as its too fine.

The dress is very close fitting and fits the latest Barbie model.  For a larger fashion doll add a few extra dc at the beg.  

The design takes about 25g of yarn with 10g in each contrast colour
This is a great design to use up all those small bits of yarn in your stash.  I used shoelace ribbon for the hat but a crochet chain would work too.

If you make this dress and hat and have any queries or find any mistakes please let me know.

Barbie crochet prom dresses



Its been a while since I made anything for Barbie so I had a look in my stash and found some oddments of 4ply yarn.  I had forgotten I had the sparkly pink yarn so what else to make but a prom dress.   The metallic colour yarn is Sirdar Firefly which I bought ages ago as it was on offer, with the idea that it might come in useful for a scarf but it makes an interesting skirt for the dress. 
The dresses are made from the top down so are easy to put on Barbie.  The only problem is you have to be very careful as her feet can get caught in the crochet.  I usually hold her feet as I pull the dress on.

    The bodice is shaped at the rear (as photo) so the skirt is lower at the back - I was shopping with my daughter and granddaughter looking at prom dresses a few weeks ago and noticed that lots of them have this type of shaping.  The dress is very tight fitting so be careful with tension- but as these little garments are so quick to make it takes no time pull work out and start again!

Any Ravelers out there - if you make the dress please post a photo and link to the pattern


If you find any mistakes are have problems with the pattern please leave me a comment.

Barbie crochet shorts and cropped top

This shorts and cropped top design was inspired by shopping with my granddaughters in Topshop. 

The pattern is worked in  continuous rounds through the back loop only for a softer fabric.  It was a bit tricky writing down the instructions for the shorts  but I put in some photos that should help.  If you have any problems with the pattern please let me know. 

I used Patons soft cotton 4ply as I have a stash of various colours to use up, but any 4ply should work.  Check your tension as yarns can differ in thickness and can make a bit difference with such a small garment. 

I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment if you try the pattern.

Barbie Crochet Nautical Dress


I've improvised my crochet dress pattern to make this blue and white crochet dress for Barbie.  The pattern uses 4ply yarn - I used Patons 4ply soft cotton, but any 4ply would work.  The bodice is made first in dc, from the waist to neckline, then the skirt is added from the waist to the hem.  The pattern is very easy, worked in continuous rounds and all you need to know is how to 
do double crochet, treble crochet and slip stitch.   

As the dress has no back opening and crochet is quite open be very careful when dressing barbie that her feet and hands dont catch the threads.

If you make the dress please let me know if you find any typos or other mistakes so I can amend the pattern.  And I would love to hear your comments.

Barbie crochet dresses and bag



This green dress is the first crochet pattern I made and published for Barbie.  I've amended the pattern to reduce the number of increases by increasing only on alternate rounds.  


The bodice is made first in dc rounds, then the skirt is worked from the base of the bodice in trs

 


To fit:  12” Barbie (the latest model) and most fashions dolls
Materials: 25g 4ply yarn( I used Patons Soft Cotton 4ply), Crochet hook no 3.50 (or size to match tension)
Tip: Any 4 ply yarn would do, I made the dress in some left over sock yarn which was quite interesting.  Crochet cotton is not suitable as its too thin.  

Tension: (Gauge) 24sts x 26 rows to 4” over dc (check your tension and use suitable size hook)
Abbreviations:  Dc: double crochet (US single crochet), tr: treble crochet, (US double crochet), ch: chain, slst: slip stitch, inc: increase
Notes:
This dress is a close fit so any differences in yarn weight will make a smaller or larger garment. Cotton thread is not suitable.
Work through the back loop only for a softer fabric

Place a marker at beginning of each round to keep track of rounds

If you find any mistakes or have any queries about this pattern please leave a comment below or contact me.
