    Dolls dressing gown description

    Thanks for checking out my unicorn dolls dressing gown crochet pattern. As you may know I’ve been designing clothes for 18″ dolls over the last few weeks. Its so addictive and the look on the children’s faces seeing them is truly priceless! This week I’ve designed a unicorn themed dressing gown and I’m so pleased with how its turned out.

    The unicorn dressing gown is designed to fit 18″ child style dolls. The dressing gown is made using two yarns held together making it thick and cozy. Don’t be put off if you haven’t used two yarns together before. It’s just as easy as crocheting with a single yarn and there’s something quite satisfying about watching the colours merge together. The hooded dressing gown ties at the waist and is big enough to fit over your dolls pyjamas. The dressing gown has a pretty unicorn theme, Its hood is topped with unicorn ears, cone and crochet roses.

    How to crochet a dolls dressing gown

    The unicorn dolls dressing gown is easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches, simple increases and decreases as well as be able to work into the back loops and magic ring. The pattern involves some basic sewing, to be more specific you’ll need to sew on the ears, cone, roses and belt. It works up super quick and uses DK (weight 3) yarn. The dressing gown is made using two strands of yarn held together and a 6.5mm hook. The roses and cone uses a 4mm crochet hook. You will need a very small amount of toy stuffing to fill the unicorn cone. Gauge is very important for this pattern as you want you doll clothes to fit. The dolls dressing gown uses approximately 160g (449m/492yd) of yarn.

    sl st – slip stich

    st / sts – stitch / stitches

    sp – space

    sc – single crochet

    sc2tog – decrease (single crochet 2 together)

    2sc – Increase (2 single crochet in one space)

    hdc2tog – decrease (half double crochet 2 together)

    dc – double crochet

    blo – back loop only

    Gauge / tension

    Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

    4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 10 rows of 9 sc

    6.5mm hook – 2” x 2” = 5 rows of 6 hdc

    Finished sizes (small/medium)

    Length excluding hood – 25cm

    Length including hood – 46cm

    Width – 16cm

    Underarm to wrist – 9cm

    Pattern notes

    I do not count chains or finishing slip stitches in my stitch count. Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

    Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch. eg. (sc x 2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, sc in second stitch, then inc in next stitch.
