Crochet Halter Top for Barbie -One Piece, Free Pattern

This crochet halter top is another free pattern I created back in 2014 and wanted to move over to the Barbie blog. The pattern comes together quickly and is made in one piece. The whole top is simply made by decreasing stitches, and works best with thinner yarn. It slips up over the doll's hips, and the strap goes around the back of her neck to the front. You will need one small 1/4"-ish button to secure the strap.

This top will fit modern belly button dolls as well as older, bustier ones like this Midge.
And it's always easier to dress dolls with hard plastic legs as opposed to the rubbery legs...

 I used a cute star button from my stash😎

What I did (please remember I am a novice at crochet, it's always best to try garments on the doll as you work...):
Crochet Halter Top - F hook, baby weight yarn, small button
Ch 24, slip stitch to join being careful not to twist chain.
SC across (working in the round) until just under 1".
Once you get to the start (even with where the tail is of your slip knot), slip stitch 2 spaces, SC across to the point where there are 2 stitches until the tail.
Next 2 rows - Ch1, turn your work and SC across. This will begin to open up the back.
Next 3 rows - Ch1, turn, decrease once, SC across but decrease when you get to the last two stitches.
*Ch1, turn, SC next three stitches, repeat from * until the strap goes around her neck and down the other side. It needs to be long enough to fit over a button.
Cut yarn, tie off, weave in ends, sew on a cute button-done!

Make something just for fun and have a happy day😊
