Free Crochet Pattern

My First Crochet Pattern

Last February Emily and Ruth asked me to make more outfits for their 5 inch baby dolls.   Ruth added one caveat to this request she wanted the underpants to fit better.  I had to agree with her so I set about creating my first crochet pattern.

I have long admired my girlfriend Barb, she has been creating original crochet patterns for years so with Barb as a mentor I spent the next 6 months working it out.  Ok really I put off working on the problem until this past weekend.

Five inch Doll Fancy Pants
Using size 10 cotton and a 1.75 crochet hook chain 40 stitches and join the chain into a circle with a slip stitch. 
Round #1 single crochet in each stitch join round with a slip stitch
Round #2 single crochet in each stitch join round with a slip stitch
Round #3 single crochet in the first three stitches and then for the next 14 stitches single crochet into the back loop only and return to crocheting through both loops and join round with a slip stitch
Round #4 repeat round #1
Round #5 repeat round #3
Round #6 repeat round #1
Round #7 repeat round #1
Row #8 single crochet for 20 stitches turn
Row #9 chain 1 decrease one stitch and single crochet to last two stitches and decrease across these two stitches turn
Row #10 through #11 repeat round #9
Row #12 chain 1 decrease two stitches, single crochet to last three stitches and decrease two stitches turn (10 stitches)
Row #13 through #15 repeat round 12 (2 stitches)
Row #16 single crochet in each stitch turn
Row #17 single crochet in each stitch and cut the thread lock stitch.
Pick up stitch 21 of round and repeat rows 8 through 17
Join the two row 17s together for form the underpants.
Back Lace:
Return to the first row of 14 stitches crocheted into the back loop.  Pick up the front loop and chain three then double crochet twice in the same loop, single crochet in the next loop, three double crochet in the loop and repeat this across, cut the thread and repeat this for the second line of available front loops.
Pick up 20 single crochet around each the pant leg and repeat the three double crochet followed by a single stitch. 
I hope that you enjoy this free crochet pattern for 5 inch baby dolls.
