Sometimes, the beauty of crochet lies not in where the stitches are, but in where they aren’t. This lacy openwork top demonstrates that principle. A delicate lacelike fabric makes up the top and the fluttery short sleeves. Good fit is ensured by the ribbed bottom band. The simple pattern works up very quickly. Make it in cotton for a flirty summer look, in wool to layer over a tee with jeans in the fall, or in a shiny metallic for a special occasion. However you make it, you’re going to love it. This PDF crochet pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.

Pattern is easy to follow. I blocked the pieces before assembling according to the pattern dimensions, but the back was a little tight over the shirt, so I used a Velcro strip instead of snaps to prevent gaps. I wouldn’t ordinarily recommend Velcro to use with yarn, but the yarn I used was easy to remove without damage if it accidentally stuck to the Velcro.
It was Fun and easy to follow pattern but too many pages to print off. My Grandaughter will love it for her Doll. Thanks
The crocheted shawl was a great success as I helped my 10 year old granddaughter to crochet the shawl for her doll. It was fun doing it together. Thanks for providing that beginning crochet pattern.
Was a very easy pattern to make well written and easy to follow fitted doll beautifully
