Gardener’s Getaway – 18” doll :pinterest

gg1.jpg


This set is made with WW yarn (RH Aran Fleck , straw/tan coloured RH and a RH moss green) These yarns tend to be on the finer side of WW yarns so I used 5mm and 4.5mm hooks for these.

The set consists of
Capri cargo pants
Mossy sweater
Sunhat
Kneepads

Capri cargo pants…

gg3.jpg

Begin with a ¼ in elastic waistband that will fit your doll

Row 1: work 50 sc into elastic ring

Row 2 -3: work 50 DC even

Row 4: dc in 5, dec, dc in 2, dec, dc in 28, dec, dc in 2, dec, dc in 5. (46dc)

Row 5: dc in 3, dec, dc in 2, dec, dc in 1, dec, dc in 22, dec, dc in 1, dec, dc in 2, dec, dc in 3 (40dc)

Rows 6 – 7: Dc evenly around. At the end of row 7 connect the 1st stitch to the 20th stitch and the 21st stitch to the 40th stitch. Break off thread

Legs: You start with 20 stitches for each leg. As you work around the first row, be sure to work a stitch into the crotch join so you have 21 sts for each leg.

Begin each leg at the side seam so that your cuffs have a slit opening.

For both legs, work a few stitches (at start and end of row) TBL so you can add pockets (I left 5 on one leg and 6 on the other.

Following the notes, work 5 rows of dc even on the 21 stitches. For the last round do not join. (You can add an extra st in the front opening st but not nec.)

Work pockets…

attach the yarn in the row above your Loops and work DC into the free loops, connect each row of pockets to the pants with a sl st. Edge the pockets with the moss green for emphasis. Be creative with your pocket styles :wlol

Mossy Sweater…

gg8.jpg


Remember to allow for a closure. I worked 3 buttonhole loops by tightly crocheting a ch 6 before beginning a row.

Row 1: Ch 24, work 2 hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next. Continue across the chain increasing in every other stitch. (36 hdc)

Row 2: hdc in 5, V-st, hdc in 2, 2hdc in next 2, hdc in 2, V-st in next, hdc in 10, V-st, hdc in 2, 2hdc in next 2, hdc in 2, V-st in next, hdc in 5.

Row 3: hdc in hdc, V-st in V-st.

Row 4: hdc in 2, then DC in hdc , V-st in V-st around to last two st. hdc in 2.

Row 5: Work Dc in dc and into V-st, ch1, dc into next V-st, dc across front and into V-st, ch 1, dc into next V-st, dc to end.

Row 6: Work dc across but work 3 increases near the armholes. One in front, one right at armhole and one just on the back side

Row 7: Work even in Dc

Row 8: work dc in 3, 3dc in next across. Finagle the other end if it doesn’t come out even. Break off and tidy ends.

Finish sleeves…
Attach yarn and work around sleeves in DC.
On the first row, work hdc, then sc in the arm pit area. Work 1 increase in back at top.

On the second row, work hdc in the arm pit area. Work 1 inc. in the top front

Work 2 rows of dc even. Break off. (makes 4 rows for sleeves)


Sun Hat..

gg2.jpg

With straw coloured yarn
work standard hat base in Double Crochet for 3 rows

Work 3 rows of dc even
Work (FPsc, 2FPsc) around
Work one row DC in main colour.
Work one row of CC increasing only as needed to keep brim flat. Break off

If you wish to have a lanyard to keep the hat on… Get a long strand of yarn (1 yd) and attach to one side of hat brim into the ridge formed by the Post stitches and find centre of the strand and tie a knot to keep the end in place (you now have two strands together.

Thread the two strands through the two holes (into and out) of the button.

Secure the other end on the other side of the brim as for the first side.

Slide the button up to the chin to keep the hat on and form a knot in the slack area (see photo).

Kneepads..

gg4.jpg

These are so not needed but a cute concept.

Chain 15 and join. Work dc around and join.

Work surface crochet back and forth over 5 stitches to make padding. Break off leaving a long tail that you use to weave into and over the padded area.

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.

You are so amazing at designing and making doll clothes. Just when I think you can't top yourself I see a new one posted that is better than the last.

DOGGONNIT, Darski! My DDs are grown and I've tried soooo hard to avoid things like this! I've resisted ALL those darling outfits until now - I'm a Master Gardener and I simply NEED THIS to display!

Does this mean that I should go ahead with the gloves, the trowel and the bulb planter?

Seriously... at this time of year I was planning my gardens and that is why I had to make this one. I don't have my crocus anymore (or the house for that matter) but I can still dream of the garden that might be.

I love your 18-inch doll patterns! I'm trying to get my 18-inch doll to look presentable so I can make some. Was it hard to transition between Dora and Sunnie?

Actually yes. Sunnie is more work than Dora. She is harder to fit but it does provide for some opportunities that are different.

They are all fun but different.

Well, Darski, it's a gorgeous 60 degree day out, perfect for poking around in the yard like a good Master Gardener should, but noooooooo - I am getting ready to go to the WM and get a doggone doll! So I can crochet clothes for it!

Actually, I think I may do 2 - one to offer as a raffle or something for a gardening conference. Thanks again for sharing - and hurry up with her accessories! The girls gotta garden! LOL JK
