Working on the puffy sleeves,

Round 1: Attach thread with sc at one side of the sleeve (preferably somewhere at the back of the top to hide the seams), and work 5 single sc’s at the underside of the sleeve and 8 increases (2 sc’s in each st) for the remaining stitches. Join with sl st in the first sc, turn. (21)

Please see the photo below for more information on the stitches for this Round.

Pullip Flower Headpiece

Materials:

  • Size No. 3 Crochet Steel Hook;
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread;
  • Tapestry Needle;
  • Optional: Small Beads; and
  • Needle and Thread in a matching color.

Pattern:

This pattern consists of making 12 flower motifs in a circular fashion to complete the headpiece.

How to make the flower motif:

In a magic circle, do the petal in the ring 5 times. Fasten off, tighten the ring, and weave in the ends.

How to join motifs:

Work the next flower in the same way until you reach 4 petals, ch 3, slip hook through the tr-petal you want to connect with from the RS, then work the next tr in the ring, making sure to pull through the last 4 loops (instead of the final 2) to complete the tr stitch, ch 3, sl st in the ring.

When you reach the 12th flower, you will want to connect to the first and 11th flowers during the 2nd and 5th petal, respectively, by using the same method.

Here are some photos for a clearer explanation on the joining:

Once you have finished all 12 motifs, you can choose to add a bead in the middle of the flower for extra detail. Sequins can also be used to give the flower a bigger center.

I hope you had fun making this project and I would love to see photos of your finished items in Ravelry so I can add it here. These are some of the photos I took of my doll with some of my older designs:
