TRIBAL GONK FREE CROCHET PATTERN – Doll Clothes
Base: Use a Nude Gonk as your base, see Adam Gonk for instructions.
Straw skirt free crochet pattern
Using a golden Yellow colour yarn to represent straw, chain 36 and join to form a circle,
1. sc in each ch, sl st to join. (36)
2. sc in each st, sl st to join. (36)
3. sl st along the previous joins to bring the yarn back to the starting chain.
Work crab stitches (single crochets working towards the right instead of left) along the other side of the starting chain to finish the top edge of the waistband.
4. Add straw strands using the same method for adding hair to the middle of the waistband. I have added a few different shades and thickness of yellow and beige yarn to add more texture. You may find it easier to place the waistband on your Gonk to hold in place while adding the straw. To fit on to your Gonk, pull on from the base.

Now decorate your mask in any way you wish! You could even add beads, buttons, or felt.
I have embroidered a mouth and eyes with white yarn and used the surface slip stitch technique to add decorative lines.
For the surface slip stitch technique use a smaller hook – hook through a gap in the mask (in between stitches) at the point you want to start your line, place the yarn you want to add behind the piece and pull up a loop, hook through again at the next gap along, pull up a loop and slip the first loop over. Continue for the desired area you want to make you lines, cut the yarn and pull the end through the last loop to finish, pull the end through to the back of piece and weave in the ends. Simply place over your Gonk’s nose to wear the mask.
