My favorite hobby is crocheting doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.
I wanted to make some accessories for Barbie, but I wanted to share it together instead of incorporating it to my other patterns. Hats are generally the same basic pattern, you just need to add some designs to it to make it unique enough to match the outfit. The jacket is done in double crochet stitches, which looks simple enough to be able to match with several other stitch patterns you want to pair it with.
The head for this doll is slightly bigger than the regular Barbies, so if you wanted to adapt the hat for regular Barbies, I suggest using a smaller hook size or getting a smaller gauge than indicated in the pattern. The jacket uses a small button to close the front. You can opt to remove the button by skipping the instructions for the buttonhole in the pattern. Add snaps to change the look or leave it empty and have an open jacket for your doll.
This accessories pack was made specifically for a Curvy Barbie doll. For more information on the different body types of Barbie, please visit Crochet Clothes For Your Barbie Doll.
