Twinkle, Twinkle... Baby 18" Doll

Recommended Posts

In the first post underneath the first picture, there is a link to the PDF file. Are you able to open and print it? If you're just wanting the pattern and no pictures, you could copy and paste just the pattern parts from the first post.

iam and old lady 63 years and need help to get the pattern twinkle twinkle 18 baby to print the pattern please

 

Did you got that pattern printed out?. I could print that out & mail that to you.  

I do think I would need OK from Darski to do that (she is the designer of that pattern). I am not very familiar with rules about doing something like that.

I just want to help you. Let me know.

How much yarn is needed?

I'm afraid I have no idea - I started with a 1 pound skein so I knew I had lots.

I don't mind if you want to do this for her.  Since I don't have a website I don't need traffic for my patterns.  :ghug

Just the perfect thing for an upcoming great niece (or nephew :-)). Thank you so much for sharing this, and very glad I stumbled on it! Wondering how much yarn I should buy?

I really can't say how much yarn it took.  I started with a 1 pound skein of Red Heart and did not use all of it.  sorry

Twinkle, Twinkle Baby 18” doll :pinterest

the PDF is Here:Twinkle.pdf

I came up with this star bunting after seeing a knit version at Lion Brand so this is a directly inspired design. They have a crochet version but I have no idea what it is like because they don’t have a picture of it.

With yellow WW yarn and a 5mm hook

Pentagons: make 2
post-4896-13589751132_thumb.jpg

Row 1: ch 3, 9 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. (10 dc)

Row 2: ch 4. *2 dc in next 2 dc, ch 1* repeat to last dc, 2dc in last dc, dc in beginning st. join to 3rd ch of 4. (20 dc, 5ch 1 sp)

NOTE: Each row from here on begins with that ch 4 and working each of the five segments of the pentagon. Ea. Segment ends with another dc in the beginning st… just so you know :wlol

Row 3: Ch 4, 2dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc, 2dc in next dc, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Row 4: ch 4, 2dc in next dc, dc in next, 2 dc in next 2, dc in next, 2dc in next, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Row 5: ch 4, * 2dc in next dc, dc in next 2, 2dc in next, dc in 2, 2dc in next, dc in 2, 2dc in next dc, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Row 6: ch 4, * 2dc in next, dc in 12, 2dc in next 2, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Row 7: ch 4, * 2dc in next, dc in 14, 2dc in next 2, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Row 8: ch 4, * 2dc in next, dc in 16, 2dc in next 2, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.
Break off and tidy all ends.

Mark your 2 pentagonal shapes as…

 

  • Front upper
  • Back

 

 

 

.

Working the back pentagon…


post-4896-135897511324_thumb.jpg


Lay the pent with a flat side at the top and put a marker there just to keep yourself oriented.
On each of the 4 sides ( not the marked side) work as follows..

Work 2 rows evenly across the edge.
Work one decrease on each side until you have 4 sts. … dc in 1st, dc dec, dc in last break off.

Repeat this for the other 3 non- marked edges.



The marked edge…hat portion

Att yarn in end st.
Row 1: [Dc in 3, 2 dc in next, ] twice, dc in 4, [2dc in next, dc in 3] twice

Row 2: dc evenly across

Row3-5, dc in 1st, dc dec in next, dc to last 3 sts, dc dec, dc in last.

Row 6: dc in 1st, dc dec in next, dc in 3, dc dec, dc in 4, dc dec, dc in 3, dc dec, dc in last.

Row 7: dc in 1st, dc dec, dc in 3, dc dec twice, dc in 3, dc dec, dc in last

Row 8 – 11: continue as with other points.

The front Pentagon...

Mark your upper flat edge just to keep yourself oriented properly.

Work the two lower edges and the edge immediately to the right (as viewed) of your marked edge as you did the same points on the back pentagon.

The open edge…

Work 2 rows of dc evenly. Break off and tidy all ends. (22 dc per row)

The sleeve…

Chain 24…
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across (22dc)

Work the remaining rows as you did for the other ‘points’.

The hat section…

Ch 30..

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across (28 dc)

Row 2: dc evenly across (28 dc)

Row 3: dc in 1st dc, dc dec in next, dc to last 3 sts, dc dec , dc in last (26 dc)

Row 4-6: work as row 3 with on extra dec in the middle.

Row 7: work as row 3 but make 2 dec in the middle.

Row 8: work as row 4.

Continue as for other points. Break off and tidy all ends.


Stitching the parts together…

post-4896-135897511331_thumb.jpg



Notes:

I want to be able to put an edging row on the ‘hat’ portion so I am going to begin joining at the right side (as viewed) edge of the hat so that I will end up at that point.

I’m using sc for the edging because I want the emphasis that it provides.



For each point.. work 3 hdc in the centre dcs to form a nice point.

so…

Align the hat piece to the hat point of the back and join the edges with sc…

Align the loose arm piece with the adjoining back portion and join with sc.

Continue by adding the front portion and working around the other points joining all with sc as established.

When you get back to the start, turn your suit so that you can work a Crab st. across the ‘hat’ edge.

Crab st or reverse single crochet instructions can be found on You Tube.

Add buttons to the opening edge. I did not make buttonholes as the dc fabric allowed my buttons to go through naturally.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

 

 

I can't understand the hat portion on the back Pentagon. There are not enough stitches for tow 6

Please help! I have been trying all day to make the twinkle, twinkle there is no st count after row 2 and it doesn't tell if/where to sl st in each row anywhere in the pattern. I have only worked the first 6 rows and it is wavy also   in row 5 I end up with 14 stitches row 6 indicates I should have 15 because it reads (copy & pasted) Row 6: ch 4, * 2dc in next, dc in 12, 2dc in next 2, ch 1* repeat to end allowing for pattern notes.

Yes I can't get row 6 of hat portion

I am not understanding the hat portion on the back. Row 6 doesn't have enough stitches from row 3 to to 5

I'm afraid I can't help you with this.  I made it years ago and gave it away so I can't check the numbers.  It might help if you go to Crochet Help forum and ask someone who has made this recently.  You might also try at Ravelry if you are a member there.

 

sorry  :ghug

 

the back is supposed to be 'wavy' so that the head will fit.

I had a question on rows 6-8 of the hexagons.  I have tried and retried to get the counts correct & have graphed it out & I can’t get 2dc in next stitch, dc in 12, 2dc in next 2.  I only have 1 stitch to do the 2dc into before the space.  Is there something I’m doing wrong or is there not to be 2dc in the next 2?  

Love this pattern & any help you can give me would be awesome because I’d love to make this for a baby that’s due very soon.  

Thank you so very much!!

I'm sorry but I have no memory of working this pattern as I made it so long ago.  All I can tell you is that you need to be increasing by 2 dc on each of the 5 sides - 1 new at each end of the row.  ignore the numbers and just go with the concept :think

Help! Ive gotten to row 6 of the first pentagon and it says 2dc in next, dc in next 12, then it says 2dc in next 2. Is that supposed to be 2dc in next instead of next 2? It doesn't work if not.

I don't really remember but I know I started with a 1 pound skein of Red Heart yarn.  I did not use all of it but that should cover it.

I know there haven’t been any comments in awhile but I am working on this and have come to the hat portion of the back panel.  When I get to row 6, I’m about 4 stitches short.  When doing the math of this project, it doesn’t work.  Maybe I’m not understanding it quite right.  Could you verify that the directions are correct?
