With that said, how many of you recognize the outfit that’s on Hady, the Hippo Amigurumi? It’s a crochet bikini doll’s clothes I made for her about 11 months ago. Since many of you asked for a detailed tutorial on how to crochet the bikini for stuffed animals, this is what this post is all about!

The crochet bikini pattern is sized for a doll with a chest size of 10″ to 12″ and a waist of around 12″. Don’t worry that if the size doesn’t fit your doll, you can always adapt the pattern and make changes a little. Simply adding or reducing some stitches in the crochet pattern or using bulkier or lighter yarn weight to make the size fit the doll.

This cute little ruffled skirt crochet pattern is suitable for any other animal, after all, the crochet instruction mentioned that you could measure the waist to determine how big you have to crochet. Want a longer ruffled skirt? Just crochet a few more rounds to make it longer.

Apart from Elwis & Elyra, the Elephant Amigurumi; and Princess P, the Piggy Amigurumi; Hady is one of the few lucky animals in the Amigurumi community who owns an outfit. Happily, now that we have crocheted more bikinis for dolls, Hady will be able to hang out at the beach with her friends in the same outfit!

Let’s Play Dress Up

Here we have Gem, the Giraffe Amigurumi, in our new white crochet bikini, and Aile, the Winged Unicorn Amigurumi, in our green crochet bikini. They are so excited to be in their new outfits and are excited to head down to the beach together with Hady! By the way, we have an extra set of red crochet bikini, ready for anyone who wants to join in.

This crochet bikini pattern is a beginner’s level craft, hence, don’t be shy to craft more so that their friends can have their fair share of fun at the beach.

All this while, Hady had wished for a companion to go the beach. Despite this, no one was willing to go with her due to the lack of suitable clothes. She kept all her beach-related accessories to herself helplessly in hopes that one day, she could share her mini sun hat, mini straw tote, duck buoy, mini sandals, and beach ball with her friends. Now that the day had finally arrived, she was definitely ecstatic! She even has a new blue bikini on… Don’t you think it flatters her skin tone?

With their new bikinis on, Hady, Gem, and Aile are all set for the beach. It has been a while since they’ve all been out together due to the difficult times this year. Hady is so ready to introduce her favorite chilling spot to her friends. She had been rambling on and on about the white sandy beach, calming sea breeze, deep blue ocean, squabbling seagulls, and soothing sounds of waves.

crochet bikinipic.1

Mark-1 is the base row which has 131 stitches. It is also the strap of the bikini, you may adjust the number of stitches to suit your doll.

Mark-2 is the end of the base row, don't cut or fasten the yarn because you will need to continue to crochet it at the later part of the pattern.

Mark-3 is the first stitch of the first triangle of the bikini. It is also 10 stitch to the right from the mid point of the base row. The midpoint of the base row is at 66th stitch.

Follow the crochet pattern to crochet Triangle 1 of the bikini.

crochet bikinipic.2

Mark-1 is the Triangle 1 you have just completed.

Mark-2 is where you should insert your hook with a new strand of yarn to make Triangle 2.

Follow the bikini crochet pattern to crochet Triangle 2 of the bikini.

crochet bikinipic.3

This is how the bikini should like after completed Triangle 1 and Triangle 2. I didn't hide the yarn ends in the picture (as instructed in the pattern) just to show you where the crochet begins and ends.

crochet bikinipic.4

After you have completed the 2 triangles, continue to crochet from the base row where you have paused for the triangles.

The pattern calls for sl st on the base row, along the slope of the triangle, then crochet the neck strap that's connected to the triangle.

crochet bikinipic.5

When picking stitches to crochet the slopes of the triangle, make 1 slst for 1 row of the triangle pattern. This will give you a total of about 4 to 5 of slip stitches along the slop till the tip of the triangle. However, if your tension of slst stitches is as taut as mine, you may need to add another 1 or 2 slst along the slope (about 3 slst in 2 rows). As a rule of thumb, eyeballing to adjust the tension of your crochet or add the number of stitches just to make sure the slst trim isn't too tight that it curls up the triangles.

crochet bikinipic.6

Repeat the same to the second triangle and also create a neck strap at the tip of it.

crochet bikinipic.7

Continue to crochet until you come to the end of the base row.

Hide all yarns to complete the bikini top.
