Spring Blizzard – 18” doll :pinterest

sb2.jpg

The parts of this include
Snow jacket – yet another B.I.C.O.
Snow pants
Warm hat
Mittens
The jacket and snowpants are made with an Extra bulky Bouclé. I wouldn’t guarantee the results with any other yarn.
It also requires 4 pretty spring colours in WW yarn
EBBouclé needed an 8mm hook
WW yarn used a 5mm hook

Snow Jacket… made as a BICO done in SC but with the fronts worked straight down and colourful additions come later

Begin at back
Chain 15, sc across (14sc) – work 5 rows of SC even. Break off

Chain 9, pick up back piece and work sc across, chain 10
Work SC across (32 stitches) for 7 rows.

Work 1 row of sc in 13, slst in 6, sc in 13
Work seven rows (for right sleeve) even
Work sc in 5 turn
Work even for 5 rows (to match back)Break off

Attach yarn in sc next to neck edge to complete left side to match right side. Break off. Sew seams and tidy ends.

With White WW yarn, attach yarn in CB and work sc around the entire edge of the jacket work it so that the white sits well on the bulky yarn rather than one in one stitches. Decrease at neck if needed to maintain circle.

Secure the white but do not break off.

Following the picture, attach yarn and work 2 rows of pink HDC along the CF edges.
Attach Green yarn at bottom right edge and work 1 row of green HDC around entire FRONT of jacket.
Go back to the white yarn and work a row of HDC around the entire jacket but work 3 buttonholes along the right front side with a ch 2 loop and work a sc increase in every other stitch around neck edge.

Work another row of stitches around entire jacket but work an (HDC, FPdc in next) ribbing along the bottom edge

Work sc on front opening (3ch in buttonholes)

Work HDC collar around neck edge

Add large buttons at front.

Snowpants...

Because of the shape of this sweetie, it is necessary to break off after making both legs so that they can be aligned and put together. (yes you can do it without breaking off if you put in a whole lot of thought and planning – if y’all wanna do that… go for it :wlol )

Legs Make 2
Chain 16 and join
Work 1 row DC
Work 4 rows of hdc evenly
Work 3 rows of hdc increase by two stitches at the back but change the locations. Pick a part to be the back and make the increases in that area.
Break off.

Align the two legs so that the back portions are together and begin near the back and join the two legs with sc along 6 stitches…
continue around the two legs working in hdc to begin the torso and increase one on each side of pants back.

When you are working this remember that you are really starting and ending at Centre Front so put your “back” increases in the right place.

Work 4 more rows of hdc but reduce by one at CB on the last two rows. Break off

Centre 8 stitches across the front as a bib.
Decrease one stitch at either edge of the bib on row 2 and finish with one final row of 6 sts. Break off

Centre at back and work 8sc along but begin and end with a decrease SC so you have 6 sts
work another row of sc turn and
work slst, sc, hdc in the first three stitches.
Work 10 rows of dc on these 3 stitches and then work ch 2, dc into last st. Break off with a long tail. Use the long tail to secure and tidy up the buttonhole on this strap.

Return to brace and work another strap as the first. Sew large buttons to bib front section.

Hat … Wit EBBouclé

sb5.jpg

Work standard hat base

Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
Row 2: work 2 sc in ea sc
Row 3: Work Sc in 1, 2 sc in next around
Rows 4 -8: HDC around evenly. at end of row 8, ch3 and turn work
DC around increasing by 3 evenly around. Join. Break off. Tidy ends and turn up last row as brim.

Make your favourite flower and leaf motif and attach at front of hat. Can be coordinated with the colours of the jacket front.

Mitts.. WW yarn. Work in any colour pattern that suits you

sb4.jpg

I did
White -4 rows
Green – 2 rows
Pink – 2 rows
Yellow – 2 rows with the last row as ribbing (sc, FPhdc in next)

Begin with chain 2 and work 6 sc into 2nd chain from hook.
Row 2: Work 2 sc into every sc.
Rows 3 to 10 work evenly in colours you choose.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

Thanks Darski:) I just printed that pattern last nite, hoping to make it for my new Grandbabies that are coming. I might give it a try, but for a doll. I couldn't see if anyone tried it that way yet:think ..............Lise

i don't know if 2 strands of WW would work or not.

I got two st/in and confirmed over 4 inches

I got 9.5 rows over 4 inches.

I used an 8mm hook

I have used the BICO style 3 times so far for dolls and I know someone did a bear version a while back.

Help!! I've never done a pattern like this before & I'm confused. On the jacket, I've done the row that says Work 1 row of sc in 13, slst in 6, sc in 13. What does the next row mean?

 

Sorry to be so dumb, but thank you so much!!
