This is a crocheted set that I made for my granddaughter’s little doll. It consist of a hat, a cardigan and booties. I recently started doing crafts again and am enjoying it tremendously; having done many projects in the past.
- Wool or yarn of your choice. If you want to follow the exact size indicated, rely on a gauge sample. If not, the size will vary. Also, depending if you work a tight or loose stitch will also vary the size of your finished project.
- Crochet hook AERO 4.00 or equivalent
- Gauge: Chain 13, make 12 sc and 4 rows = 1 inch
- Doll is 10 inches tall
ch = Chain
sc = Single
dbl = double
hdbl = half-double
sl = slip
st - stitch
(s) plurial of a stitch
- Chain 18 plus one, sc in back of stitches only which makes rib effect, make 42 rows.
- When done, join the two sides together with slip stitches which will give you a tube.
- At the end of the tube where you are doing your last sl st, ch one and make a sc around the tube = 60 sc (this will make the decorative rim), ch 4 ; one dc in *3sc, ch 2 dc in 3 sc* repeat to the end, join with sl st cut off and weave in the end.
- Cut a 12 inch piece of yarn, slip it in and out at the other end of the tube, pull tight and tie with a bow.
- Turn hat inside out , make a fold of the rim onto the hat.
Ch 4, sc in next 3 ch(s), make 3 additional sc(s) in last chain, do not turn, you will be working on the opposite side of chain; 1 sc in same chain again and in next 2 ch(s) plus add three for a total of 12 sc(s). This makes an oval and you will work around this oval, joining each row. “Single crochet around the 12 sc(s) and join with sli st and chain one”. You will do same for 6 rows.
