Free Quick & Easy Crochet Patterns 5-Inch Berenguer Panties for Lots to Love Dolls

I love to crochet and try to find time to crochet every day. I have written several patterns that I hope to share for free!

Using Crochet Thread

Once again, I used Aunt Lydia's French Rose crochet thread in size 10. I will be creating a similar pattern using a finer thread in a more Victorian style. But I wanted to share these basic panties. These will work up quickly and if you are new to crocheting thread this should not be too much of a challenge. The most difficult parts are keeping your beginning chain from turning and attaching the seat between the legs. I have close up photos so you can see how it is done.

Supplies

Size #10 Cotton Crochet thread

Size #6 U.S. Steel Crochet hook - My favorite is Susan Bates. I like the shape of the hook.

Large needle like a darning needle with a large eye and sharp end for weaving in thread ends.

5 inch Doll

Abbreviations:

st = stitch
ch = chain stitch
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
DC = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet

Waist

Chain 32. Join without turning chain.

Ch 2. (counts as first sc.) Sc across. (32 sc)

Ch 2 (counts as first sc) Sc across (32 sc)

These two rows make a nice stable waist. (The next pattern will show how to include a ribbon row if you want a neater fit.)

Try on your doll. If you crochet very tightly or loosely you may need more or less stitches than I used or to adjust your hook size.


Row 3: Hdc in each sc. Join. Ch 2

Rows 4-9: Repeat row 3

Row 10: Now is where you will separate the legs.

After joining do not chain 2. Slip stitch in the next 2 stitches.

Row 11: Ch 2 and hdc in the next four stitches. Ch 2 and turn.

Repeat row 11 four times.

Now you need to attach to the opposite side. From the beginning you have been working on the right side. Flip pants over as you begin working on the inner flap or seat of panties.

Count 12 stitches from your first stitch in Row 11 and sc to attach seat of panties. See photos.

Weave in ends on wrong side. Flip over and you are done!

Soft Blue Thread

I used a soft Egyptian cotton thread for these panties. It is a size 10 thread like the pink thread used above but has a much softer and silkier feel and makes a more pliable finished product. I prefer Aunt Lydia's crochet thread when I am making dresses because it looks crisp and shows off my stitches. It holds it's shape and drapes nicely.

That said, I do like the Egyptian thread for things like socks and panties and especially for hats. The one I am using here is Nazli Gelin Garden Size 10 thread. I imagine this might also be nice for the high end, vintage bisque dolls that are very popular. The dresses are intricate Victorian style and are often made have a more vintage look. This thread would be perfect for that type of style.

And finally, it is very easy on your fingers which might be important if you have delicate skin.

Panties with Ribbon Tie at Waist

Chain 32. Join without turning chain.

Row 1: Ch 2. (counts as first sc.) Sc across. (32 sc)

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc) Sc across (32 dc) Join in top of first ch 3. (This will be the row where you insert ribbon.)

Row 3: Ch 2 and hdc around.


Ribbon row created

After the ribbon row is completed the rest is the same as the instructions above. I repeated the following just so you don't have to go back and forth.

Row 3: Hdc in each sc. Join. Ch 2

Rows 4-8: Repeat row 3

The last rows are the same as above but I will repeat them here so you don't have to go back and forth.

Row 10: Now is where you will separate the legs.

After joining do not chain 2. Slip stitch in the next 2 stitches.

Row 11: Ch 2 and hdc in the next four stitches. Ch 2 and turn.

Repeat row 11 four times.

Now you need to attach to the opposite side. From the beginning you have been working on the right side.

Count 12 stitches from your first stitch in Row 11 and sc to attach seat of panties. See photos.

Flip over to wrong side before attaching by using sc to connect. This will have the seam on the inside of panties and will not show when doll is wearing panties.

Weave in ends on wrong side. Weave a narrow ribbon in the ribbon row. Make sure to tie a bow before you cut to make sure it is long enough.
