Updated on November 27, 2017

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

While playing around with the chevron pattern from Barbie Strapless Chevron Dress, I wanted to try something a little bit different from it by adding a twist to each chevron and making the dress fuller. I did not know what to call this stitch pattern, so I just named it twisted chevron. The skirt uses the same technique as the classic 10 point hot pad, while the top is just a basic scoop neck from Barbie Simple Sheath Dress.

Pattern

Starting from the waist up:

Row 1: Using MC, ch 35, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. (34)

Rows 2 - 16: Repeat Rows 27 - 41 of Barbie Simple Sheath Dress. Fasten off.

Attach thread on the opposite side of the working ch,

Row 17: Using CC1, ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn. (34)

Row 18: Sl st in the first sc, (ch 23, sk 1 sc, sl st in the next sc) across, sk the last sc, turn. (17 points)

Row 19: Ch 1, (sc in the next 11 ch, 3 sc in the next ch, sc in the next 11 ch) for each point, turn. (425)

Row 20: Ch 1, (sc in the next 12 sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 12 sc) for each point, turn. Fasten off. (459)

Row 21: Attach thread using MC, ch 1, (sc in the next 13 sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 13 sc) for each point, turn. (493)

Row 22: Ch 1, (sc in the next 14 sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 14 sc) for each point, turn. Fasten off. (527)

At this point, you want to twist each point and sc along the edges of each point to make the ends lay flat.

Round 23: Overlap the points from each end, twist them together, attach thread using CC1, (sc in 6 sc from the middle sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 6 sc) for each point, making sure to twist the next point before doing the sts on the point, join with sl st in the first sc, turn. (304)

Below are some photos on how to do Round 23:

The point on the left of the middle point (where the hook is resting) is the point where the ends are overlapping together. The one to the right of the hook is already twisted and ready for the next set of stitches.

Twist the next point when you reach it to ready it for the next set of stitches. This picture contains more points with their stitches completed. They are laying flat and have the chevron pattern.

Round 24: Ch 1, (sk 1 sc, sc in the next 13 sc, sk 1 sc) around, join, turn. Change color to CC2.(208)

Round 25: Ch 1, (sk 1 sc, sc in the next 5 sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 5 sc, sk 1 sc) around, join, turn. (208)

Round 26: Ch 1, (sk 1 sc, sc in the next 11 sc, sk 1 sc) around, join, turn. Change color to MC. (176)

Round 27: Ch 1, (sk 1 sc, sc in the next 4 sc, 3 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 4 sc, sk 1 sc) around, join, turn. (176)

Round 28: Repeat Round 27. Change color to CC2. (176)

Rounds 29 - 30: Repeat Round 27. (176)

Fasten off and weave in all ends. Sew on 2 snaps at the back to close.

The skirt "fully" opened. I prefer the skirt to have a smaller opening compared to a full-fledged doily, so the chevron Rounds have decreasing stitch counts instead of increasing.
