Summer dolls clothes crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my Summer dolls clothes crochet pattern. With summer fast approaching and the spring weather getting warmer I got inspired to create a little summer outfit for my daughters 18″ child doll. The set includes a top, shorts and little shoes.

Summer dolls clothes description

The Summer dolls clothes crochet pattern bundle includes a crop top, short and even a cute pair of shoes! The outfit is made using the shell stitch for a lovely texture and beachy theme. The crop top has a halter neck which ties up around the neck and a button to secure the main part. The summer shorts features a draw string style belt allowing them fit a wider variety of dolls. The little shoes have a double sole keeping them firmer and more realistic. The dolls clothes are designed to fit 18″ child dolls and can be adjusted slightly for smaller or larger waists by adjusting hook sizes.

How it’s made

The Summer dolls clothes crochet pattern is easy-intermediate skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches, increase and decrease. The pattern uses the shell stitch which is super easy to follow. The crochet pattern involves very minimal sewing, to be more specific you will need to sew up the crotch of the shorts while weaving in the ends. The dolls outfit works up super quick and uses DK (weight 3) yarn. I used a 4mm crochet hook to make my doll clothes but I recommend using a 4.5mm hook if your 18″ doll has a larger waist. More detailed information on sizing is included in the pattern. Gauge is very important for this pattern as you want you doll clothes to fit. The doll’s crochet clothes set uses approximately 38g (111m/122yd) of yarn.

Abbreviations

ch – chain

sl st – slip stich

st / sts – stitch / stitches

sc – single crochet

2sc – increase (2 single crochet in one space)

sc2tog – decrease (single crochet 2 together)

hdc – half double crochet

2hdc / 5hdc – increase (2 or 5 half double crochet in the same space)

dc – double crochet

5dc – increase/shell (5 double crochet in one space)

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 10 rows of 9 sc
4.5mm hook – 2” x 2” = 9 rows of 8 sc

Finished sizes (small/medium)

Shorts L11cm x W15cm / L12cm x W16cm
Top – L7cm x W25cm / L8cm x W26cm
Shoes – L7cm x W4cm / L8cm x W4.5cm

Pattern notes

I do not count chains or finishing slip stitches in my stitch count. Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch. eg. (sc x 2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, sc in second stitch, then inc in next stitch.
