Crochet Halter Top for Barbie -One Piece, Free Pattern

This is another colorful thin yarn from the $1 bin at AC Moore and I thought it would make a great Crochet Halter Top for Barbie. The top slips on over her hips. I like that it's crocheted in one piece and the neck strap comes around to the front highlighting a cute little button (just slip it through one of the holes). Sometimes it's hard to find buttons that work with the scale of these dolls, but 1/4" or less seem to be fine.

This pattern is stretchy and fits older and new Barbie dolls:

I love how close together the color variations on the yarn were, 2-3 stitches for Barbie clothes is great!
This is a fun little top that came together in no time, and reminds me of warmer days:@)
Note-I'm still flying by the seat of my Barbie's pants here folks: I chained 23 to start this top and winged the back (where I began decreasing). It seems to make more sense if you start with an even number of stitches so I wrote 24 below. Just keep trying it on the doll... 

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😊
