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

I have never been the type to come up with projects based on any upcoming holidays. While I might be able to come up with ideas before the holiday comes, I always end up running out of time to finish making the project, taking photos, and typing the whole thing before the said holiday. I have been working on this project for quite a while now, and it just so happened to fit the theme for the 4th of July. So here is my first ever, holiday-inspired, project: Ever After High dolls going on a picnic.

Since we do not celebrate 4th of July here in the Philippines, I did not use patriotic colors (red, white, and blue). However, you can use whatever color you wish for your own projects.

Materials:

  • Size No. 7 Crochet Steel Hook;
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread; and
  • 1 Hook & Eye Closure.

Gauge:

  • 1 Granny Square = 1.5 cm.

Pattern:

  • Make 7 Granny Squares (Work 1 Round Only). Please visit Barbie Granny Square Shopping Tote Bag for more on how to make a Granny Square. Make sure to leave long tails for sewing the pieces together.
  • Sew the squares together to form the top. This is how you should sew your squares together:

Notes:

  • This project is a great way to use up thread scraps you accumulated from other projects. For the halter top, I used them up first (the variegated colored thread) before making the rest of the pieces in blue. Have fun creating your own color combinations to make a unique top.
  • This project can also be made for a different doll. Just make the initial granny squares bigger (by adding more rounds), and keep it the same shape.

Ashlynn Ella's Mini Shorts

Materials and Gauge:

  • Same as Ashlynn Ella's Granny Square Halter Top.

Pattern:

Working from the top:

Row 1: Ch 36, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. (35)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn. (35)

Round 3: Ch 1, (sc in the next 5 sc, inc in the next sc) 5 times, sc in the last 5 sc, sl st in the 2nd sc of the Row to join, turn. (40)

Note: Turning after Row 3 is optional. I have read some notes in Ravelry that some people do not like turning after joining a Round. It depends on your personal preference. I just like to make the stitches appear uniform, so I still turn after joining the ends together.

Round 4: Ch 1, working through both thicknesses, sc in the next 2 sc, then continue with sc in each sc around, join with sl st in the first sc, turn. (38)

Rounds 5-7: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join, turn. (38)

Round 8: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join, ch 6, sk 19 sc, attach ch with a sl st in the next sc, turn. (38 sc, 6 ch)

First leg:

Round 9: Ch 1, sc in each ch and sc around, join, turn. (25)

Round 10: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join. (25)

Fasten off.

Second leg:

Repeat First leg on the other side of the shorts.

Weave in all ends and sew on a snap at the back to close the garment.

Entrelac Picnic Blanket

Materials and Gauge:

  • Size No. 1 Crochet Steel Hook;
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread; and
  • Gauge does not matter for this project.

Pattern:

I wanted to try out something new, instead of doing a ton of squares then sewing them together to make a checkerboard pattern (which you can also do if you want). I shudder to think of all the sewing that will entail, so I searched until I found the Trip Around the World Throw pattern from Red Heart North America.

I have never done Tunisian or Entrelac crochet before this project, mostly due to the fact that I only learned to crochet by watching videos on YouTube and had no teacher to ask whether I was doing it right or not. Reading the pattern gets a bit confusing since I had no idea what the finished stitches should look like either. I found this tutorial by Mikey from The Crochet Crowd for this pattern and just followed along until I reached the desired size for my Entrelac Picnic Blanket. Here is the video tutorial for your convenience:

Picnic Basket

Materials and Gauge:

  • Size "C" Crochet Hook;
  • Size "E" Crochet Hook;
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread (hold 2 strands together unless otherwise stated); and
  • Gauge does not matter for this project.

Pattern:

Note: I used two different colored threads to give my picnic basket a different look, but it is also possible to use just one color.

Working on the base first:

Row 1: Using the smaller hook, ch 10, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. (9)

Rows 2-6: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn. (9)

Starting to work up the sides:

Round 7: Working in the back loops only, ch 1, sc in each sc across and continue working 1 sc around the base, making sure to work 2 sc in the corners, join with sl st in the first sc, do not turn. (33)

Rounds 8-9: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join. (33)

Round 10: Ch 1, sc in the first 9 sc, inc, sc in the next 6 sc, inc, sc in the next 9 sc, inc, sc in the next 5 sc, inc, join. (37)

Rounds 11-12: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join. (37)

Fasten off.

Making the handle:

Holding 4 strands together (2 strands of each color), using the larger hook, ch the length you want your handle to be. In my case, I chained 13.

Tie the handle on the inside of the basket to secure it into place.

        I pinned this to my daughter, who carries yarn everywhere but hasn't finished any projects yet. This may be too ambitious, but is and idea for getting her feet wet with adapting and creating. Very clever!
