Here are some basic instructions using simple crochet stitches and a cache of yarn bits to create a new wardrobe for your Bratz™ dolls.
The mini skirt pattern is the basic design for both skirts and pants. The sleeveless top is used for various shirts with different sleeve lengths.
Fits 10″ doll such as the Bratz™ dolls
- Small amounts of sport weight and light worsted weight yarn
- Size 00 steel crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge
- For pants or skirts – 2 small (approximately 2″ diameter) rubber bands or thin ponytail holders without metal clasps. A 3″ piece of 1/4″ elastic may be used instead, overlapping the ends 1/4″ and sewing them together.
- 2 #4 snaps or velcro for each top
- Needle and thread to match yarn
- Embellishments such as beads, small buttons, lace, bits of novelty yarns or rickrack. Iron-on “Jazzy Jeans” stars were used on the blue bell-bottom outfit. An embossing heat tool was used to apply the stars to avoid flattening the yarn fibers with an iron. But use caution; this tool is very hot and can scorch the yarn.
Varies with different yarns but averages 4 – 5 sc = 1 inch; 4 – 5 rows or rnds = 1 inch.
It may be necessary to add a row or two to the length of the garment to allow for the difference in yarn weights.
