Pink and Grey Coat

Here is a cute coat pattern for Barbie. I paired my favorite color combo from the '80's-pink and grey-with a '50's style silhouette. I plan on making a matching dress, bag, and hat in future posts.



GAUGE

9 dc sts = 1"
4 dc rows = 1"

MATERIALS

Size 6 (1.8 mm) steel hook
Size 10 thread in light grey
Size 10 thread in light pink 
Nine 4 mm light pink buttons 

DIRECTIONS

NOTES: 

1.  Ch 3 counts as first double crochet throughout pattern.

2.  Coat is worked from waist to hem first and then from waist to shoulders.

3.  I worked all dc's in either the front or back loops to give the stitches a little bit of texture, because I do not like the look of plain dc's, but you can certainly work the dc's like normal instead if you prefer.
