This is my first crochet pattern for this doll. It is an easy vest that can be crocheted up in less than an hour. The pattern is suitable for beginners as it uses very simple stitches, such as the single crochet (sc) and chains (ch/chs). It also uses the foundation single crochet (fsc), which is also fairly easy to do.
You can pair this with this barbie baseball cap, which is available in two sizes, one for Ken and one for Barbie.
