Barbie's Easter Outfit Pattern
Well, I got some yarn together and wrote down this pattern, as I promised myself I would. It's the Easter version of the black and white number I made a few weeks ago. I had some Beadies yarn in a color called Chick, and used some light lavender worsted weight yarn for the top. For hat, skirt and top, I used an "F" hook.
Row 1 - Chain 17, sc in the second chain from hook and next 15 chains (16 sc), ch 1 and working in opposite side of starting chain, sc in next 3 st, inc in next st, sc in 3 st, inc in next, sc in 3 st, inc in next st, sc in 3 st - leave remaining ch unworked. Ch 1 and turn
Row 2 - (Sc in 3 st, inc in next st)across, sl to join in first sc (24 st). Do not turn. You will begin working in rounds.
Round 3 - ch 1, (sc in same st and next 4 st, inc in next st) around, join in first sc. (28 st)
Round 4 - Round 8 - Ch 1, sc in each st, join with first sc (28 st)
Round 9 - ch 1, sc in same st, skip next st, 5 dc in next st, skip next st,*(sc in next st, skip next st, 5 dc in next st, skip next st) around, join in first sc.
Finish off and weave in ends. Sew hook and eye or a snap on the waistband.
Row 1 - ch 12, sc in back loop only in second ch from hook and each remaining ch across (11 st). ch 1, turn
Row 2 - Row 11 - Sc in back loop only in each st, ch 1 and turn
Row 12 - working in both loops, sc in each st across, ch 1 and turn
Row 13 - 20 - working in both loops, sc in each st across, ch 1 and turn
Row 21 - Row 23 - working in back loop only, sc in each st across, ch 1 and turn. At end of Row 23, do not ch 1 and turn.
Row 24 - Ch 1, sc in end of each row across. Finish off, leaving a long end for sewing.
Sew row 1 and row 23 together to close and form a tube top.
On opposite side (bottom edge of tube top), attach yarn with sc, ch 1, (sc in next st, ch 1) across, sl st to join in first sc and finish off.
Weave in ends. You can leave the top as a simple tube top, or add straps. To make straps, ch 9, and sc in back bump of second ch from hook and each remaining ch. Finish off. Make two straps. Sew straps to inside of the tube top in the desired location. Weave in all ends.
Round 1 - ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook - do not join or turn
Round 2 - 2 sc in each st around (12 st)
Round 3 - sc in first st, 2 sc in next st around (18 st)
Round 4 - sc in first 2 sc, inc in next sc around (24 st)
Round 5 - Round 6 - sc in each st around
Round 7 - sc in next 17 st, (sk next st, sc in next st 3 times), skip last sc and join in first sc.
Round 8 - in front loop only on this round - ch 3, dc in next st, inc in next st, (sc in next 2 sc, inc in next) around
Round 9 - in both loops on this round - 2 sc in 3 ch of the beginning ch, and 2 sc in each dc around. Finish off. Weave in ends.
To make the ribbon for the hat, with contrasting yarn, chain 55 and finish off. Weave in ends. Weave one end of ribbon through 2 of the ch one spaces on round 7, run ribbon around crown of hat to the other side, and weave the other end of the ribbon through the other two ch one spaces. Tie in a bow.
You can make a belt from worsted weight yarn in a contrasting or complementary color by chaining 55 and finishing off, weaving in ends.
