Barbie Basic Leggings (Free Crochet Pattern)

Updated on October 11, 2017

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

While I was making an Aran Sweater for Barbie, I thought the outfit needed some leggings or skinny pants to balance out the looseness of the sweater. But as I searched databases for crochet patterns for Barbie pants, all I found were either straight or boot cuts. This inspired me to create my own version of skinny bottoms for Barbie.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for Barbie Basic Leggings. It consists of mainly single crochets, which makes it easy to follow for beginner crocheters. This pattern was fitted on a Barbie Basics (or Model Muse) doll. For more on Barbie body types, please visit Crochet Clothes for Your Barbie Doll.

Materials and Gauge

  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread;
  • Size No. 1 Crochet Steel Hook;
  • Tapestry Needle;
  • Scissors; and
  • Gauge is the same as Barbie Short Shorts.

Abbreviations Used in American Terms

  • Ch - chain;
  • St(s) - stitch(es);
  • Sl st - slip stitch;
  • Sc - single crochet; and
  • Sc2tog - sc the next 2 sts together.

Pattern

Make Barbie Short Shorts until you reach Row 14 of the first leg division. Your leggings should look like this:

Do not fasten off and work the following rounds:

Rnd 15: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join, turn. (23)

Rnd 16-27: Repeat Rnd 15. (23)

Note: sc2tog = sc the next 2 sc together.

Rnd 28: Ch 1, sc in the first 6 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 7 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 6 sc, join, turn. (21)

Rnd 29: Repeat Rnd 15. (21)

Rnd 30: Ch 1, sc in the first 6 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 5 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 6 sc, join, turn. (19)

Rnd 31: Repeat Rnd 15. (19)

Rnd 32: Ch 1, sc in the first 5 sc, (sc2tog, sc in the next 5 sc) 2 times, join, turn.

Rnd 33-51: Repeat Rnd 15. (17)

Rnd 52: Ch 1, sc in the first 4 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 5 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 4 sc, join, turn. (15)

Rnd 53: Repeat Rnd 15. (15)

Rnd 54: Ch 1, sc in the first 4 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 3 sc, sc2tog, sc in the next 4 sc, join, turn. (13)

Rnd 55: Repeat Rnd 15. (13)

Rnd 56: Ch 1, sc in the first 3 sc, (sc2og, sc in the next 3 sc) 2 times, join, turn. (11)

Rnd 57-61: Repeat Rnd 15. (11)

Note: You can increase or decrease Rnds depending on your preferred length for the leggings.

For more information on how to adjust the size (in case it does not fit), the concept is the same as the one described in Barbie Basic Socks.

Fasten off. Your leggings should now look like this:

Work the start of the other leg like the Short Shorts pattern and repeat the same Rounds after Rnd 14 of the previous pattern.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Note: Much like the Barbie Short Shorts, this pattern does not require any snap and should easily slip on your dolls.

Variations for the Barbie Basic Leggings

Much like the trends in leggings right now, you can also work stripes into your outfit by changing colors every few Rounds. For more information on changing colors, please visit Colorblocking Clothes in Crochet.

You can also choose to make cropped leggings by stopping at your desired length and matching the number of Rounds you made for one leg to the other leg.

Here is a photo of my completed outfit for this design:

        Hi, Barbara. As stated above, you need to do the first 14 rows of Barbie Short Shorts in order to proceed to Row 15. The link is provided, you just need to click on it to get to the right one.

        As much as I would like to provide all the instructions for every single pattern in one hub, I have had difficulty publishing hubs due to having duplicate content. Since I use an old pattern as the base for this design, using the link takes away the duplicate content and allows me to publish new designs.

        Hi, Veronica! The jacket is "Her Aran Sweater" from Leisure Arts Crocheted Fashion Doll Clothes, Book 2. Since the design is not mine, I'm not legally allowed to publish the pattern.

        It should, just change the number of stitches. Unfortunately, I only have this one Barbie doll and don't have any other dolls to fit at the moment. What makes it work for Barbie is the tight fit, holding up the leggings so it does not sag or fall down.
