AG DOLL ICE SKATING OUTFIT

Thank you Vanessa for testing this pattern.


Because of the buttons this outfit isn’t suitable for a child under three years old.

Round 15 edited on 4/28/2013
MATERIALS:Worsted weight yarn approximately 3 ounces main color
Worsted weight yarn small amount trim color
US size H (5.0 mm) and size I (5.5 mm) crochet hooks
9 inches of 1/4 inch elastic
3 5/8 to 3/4 inch buttons
Needle and thread for sewing elastic and buttons
Tapestry needle

NOTES:
1. Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. Pull joining slipstitches tight.
3. Chains at beginning of rows and rounds don’t count as first st.
4. Yarns used Red Heart Super Saver Cherry. Trim Wool-Ease White Frost
5. If your stitch counts are off a stitch or two don’t sweat it. I made three of these outfits and I couldn’t seem to come up the same. So the stitch counts are approximate.
6. The buttons are fairly large to make it easy for little fingers. Be sure they are sewn on tightly.
