I have been crocheting Barbie clothes for my granddaughter. I have made several of these adorable outfits and believe I have tweaked the pattern to my satisfaction.
There are two pieces to this outfit, the leotard and the tutu (see below). You will need two of the little 1 inch in diameter pony tail holders in the same colors of your yarn of choice:) for each outfit.
I used size C crochet hook.
Round one: Work 30 single crochet stitches around one of the pony tail holders, join with a sl st in the first sc.
Next round: Chain 2 then Double crochet in the next two stitches, dc2 tog: continue this same pattern: At the end of the round, you should have decreased to a total of 21 stitches.
Continue double crocheting until leotard measures 3 inches. Sew together 1/4 inch in center to make the crotch. Tie off and weave in ends.
Round One: Work 37 stitch on the second ponytail holder, join with slip stitch, Chain 3
Round Two: Three Triple Crochet in each stitch, chain 2
Round Three: Double Crochet in each stitch, tie off weave in ends.
This is how the two pieces should look off the doll.
