Barbie Panties With No Snaps (Free Crochet Pattern)

Updated on June 6, 2017

My favorite hobby is crocheting doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.

The first thing I always wanted to crochet for Barbie was panties. It was difficult to find a pattern because a) Barbie is a doll, so no underwear is necessary; and b) even though it is a small article of clothing, the ones I found all needed snaps. As a novice sewer, (I only learned to sew when I first encountered snaps in making doll clothes), I did not want to have to sew unnecessary snaps, especially on a very narrow strip of cloth.

And so, this pattern was inspired by my desire to make no-snap-required panties specifically designed for Barbie Basics body (or Model Muse). For more information on body differences, check out my article: Crocheting Clothes for Your Barbie Doll.

Materials

  • Size 10 crochet cotton thread
  • No. 6 steel hook or size needed to obtain gauge

Gauge

10 sc = 1", 12 sc rows = 1"

Note 1: Once you make the tube, try it out on your doll. It should rest snugly on the hips or wherever you want it to start. Adjust the number of chains in the beginning if it does not fit properly.

Note 2: When you reach the end of the pattern, check the fit again to make sure it covers the parts you want sufficiently before sewing the ends in.

Note 3: If you do decide the change the number of chains, once you reach the Crotch area, make sure that the number of skipped stitches for each leg is equal so that it is symmetrical.

Note 4: Sc2tog = sc next 2 sts together

Waistband

Rnd 1: Ch 38, sl st in the first ch to form ring, ch 1, sc in each st of the ch, join with sl st in first sc, turn. (38 sc)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join, turn. Fasten off. (38 sc)

Note 5: At this point, the waistband is only 2 rows thick. If you want to increase the thickness of the band, feel free to add another round of sc's. The panties that I have encountered (those with snaps) ranged from having 1 to 3 rows of sc's for the waistband.

Crotch Area

Row 1: Sk 14 sts, join with sc in next st, sc in the next 9 sts, turn (10 sc) (Front of Panties)

Row 15: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in last st, turn (8 sc)

Row 16: Ch 1, sc in each st, turn (8 sc)

Row 17: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in last st, turn (10 sc)

Row 18: Ch 1, sc in each st, turn (10 sc)

Row 19: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in last st, turn (12 sc)

Row 20: Ch 1, sc in each st, turn (12 sc)

Row 21: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in last st, turn (14 sc)

Row 22: Ch 1, sc in each st. Fasten off, leaving a long tail. (14 sc) (Back of Panties)

Using the long tail, sew the end of panties to the opposite end of Rnd 2. In order to make sure both sides match, sk 7 sts from the front of panties and start sewing from there. There should be 7 sts on the other side to make the panties symmetrical.

Weave in all the ends.

Variations

For those interested in doing panties with three rows of sc's for the waistband, please refer to the picture on the right. While it may look more like men's underwear because of the thickness of the band, it does cover more at the back, making it more suitable for children.

You can also play with the way you form the hourglass shape for the crotch to make different panties like thongs, g-strings, etc.
