    Shooting star dolls pyjamas description

    This shooting star dolls pyjamas crochet pattern is easy skill level and designed to fit 18″ dolls. To celebrate my daughter finally giving up her dummy (aka pacifier) we bought her a ‘big girl’ doll. Of course we couldn’t leave out her big sister so they now have one each. Unfortunately only one of the dolls came with a surprise set of pyjamas so I quickly got to work on crocheting a new set. I think I’m now a little hooked and have been designing doll clothes all week!

    The free shooting star doll pj’s include a pyjama top and pants, the premium pattern even a matching sleep mask! The top buttons up at the back to make it easier to dress your doll. The nightwear set is designed to fit 18″ child dolls and can be adjusted slightly for smaller or larger waists by adjusting hook sizes. The design includes a cute shooting star applique.

    How to crochet doll pyjamas

    The shooting star dolls pyjamas and sleep mask crochet pattern is easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches, simple increase and decrease as well as be able to work into the back loops and magic ring. The pattern involves very minimal sewing and tapestry. It works up super quick and uses aran (weight 4) yarn. I used a 5mm crochet hook to make my doll clothes but I recommend using a 5.5mm hook if your 18″ doll has a larger waist. Gauge is very important for this pattern as you want you doll clothes to fit. The doll’s crochet pyjamas set uses approximately 87g (191yds) of yarn.
