Free Crochet Outfit

I’ve made my Bride Gonk using Chunky (US Bulky) weight acrylic yarn. You can make your Gonk in any yarn type or weight. Use the same yarn weight and hook size as you use to make your Eve Gonk for the clothing.

I have made my Bride Gonk using a 5.5mm hook. This is 0.5mm smaller than I used for my Groom Gonk, so that the Bride appears a little more petite and feminine when stood against the Groom.

Eve Gonk Base

Make a Nude Eve Gonk by following the instructions for Christmas Eve Gonk, using your skin colour yarn throughout, or use White for R1. to R7. to add shoes.

Skip the Dress Frills (R9.{a} and R21.{a}) and just work in the normal both loops throughout. Work joining your rounds to keep the shaping level and then work continuous rounds from R22. as stated in the pattern.

Make your arms all in the same colour as well, skipping R5.{a} and working in both loops throughout. Join your arms to either side of the body positioning the top of arms with the 10th row down from the top.

Make your nose and position the middle with the 8th row down.

Fold the piece at the two 3dc points to make the bow shape. Take a length of yarn and thread it up through the centre of the bow, wrap the yarn around the middle 5 times, and thread back through the middle to secure.

Use the excess yarn to attach the bow to the back of the dress following the next directions.

Attach The Bow And Shape The Dress

Put the dress on your Gonk, fitting it over her head, and ensure the cups are in place and top of the skirt sits directly above the bum cheeks shaping. Now fold to shape the dress train.

Bride Gonk image showing how to shape the train of the wedding dress.

On the back at the top the skirt, locate last trc st made before the round join. This is the centre point. Fold the skirt from this stitch, down to the hem. This makes the middle pleat of the train. Count 3 trc stitches to the left of the centre point trc, and fold again to make the second pleat. Count 3 trc stitches to the right of the centre point trc, and fold for the third pleat. You should have 3 trc stitches at the ridge of your pleats with 2 trc stitches in between each at the top.

Take the excess yarn on your bow and thread the end through under these 3 trc stitches. Loop through the back of your bow to gather the stitches and attach the bow. Repeat the loop through to secure the join. Feed the yarn through the dress stitches and come out at the base of the bodice back opening. Thread in at the top of the other side, out the top of the first side and back in at the base of the other side to make a X shape across the opening to add a lace-up effect. Tie and weave in to secure the end and trim off excess yarn.

We will continue working Vsts for the sleeves, working in joined rounds.

Repeat for the other sleeve.

Bridal Hairstyle

I have used a blend of 2 shades of Light Brown for my bride’s hair (Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in Light Caramel 308 and Soft Fudge 309). Of course, you can use any colours you prefer.

The strands of Chunky weight yarn I have used is made up of 4 twisted plies. To give the loose curls effect, I have separated the strands into pairs of 2 plies. Other yarns may differ in texture or number of plies.

Cut lengths of yarn approximately twice the height of your Gonk. Attach the strands before separating the plies following the next directions.

Step 1.

Attach the strands of yarn in the usual way, forming a line in a ring around the outer hairline. As guidance, my line sits 4 rounds down from the centre towards the front, and 7 rounds down towards the back. Add another line of hair along the inner front half of the ring. Each of your strands of yarn will create 2 strands of hair when attached. Divide each of these strands of hairs into two, splitting the plies into pairs, to create the loose curls effect. This will give you 4 curls per attached strand of yarn.

Step 2.

Using your yarn needle and starting with the back section (where you only have a single line of strands), take 2 curls from each strand of yarn, bring them across the top of the head to the opposite side covering the middle section, and thread the ends in and out through another point of the head to secure into place. Trim off the excess yarn from the ends of the curls at the exit point. Repeat for each of the strands across the back section.

Step 3.

Continue the same process across the inner line of the front section.

Step 4.

Do the same for the outer line of the front section, but allow them to lay over the head loosely as you thread them in. Let the remaining curls from the inner line to fall through in between. Work from the outer sides towards the front centre, so the the front most strands are worked last.

Step 5.

Decide how you would like to part the front of the hair. I have chosen a side parting, gathering the front facing section to the right hand side.

Step 6.

Take the back most 4 curls (from 2 strands) and lift the up over the head and keep them out of the way until the end. Divide the rest of the hair in to 2 from the back, lightly twist the 2 sections and tie them in a knot.

Step 7.

Take another strand of yarn and split the plies into 2 to make it a curl strand. Use your needle to thread this strand through the top of the head and out by the knot. Tuck the ends of your hair around the knot and use the strand to tack them into place, weaving in and out through the knotted section. Thread back into the head to secure.

Step 8.

Take your 4 saved curls and thread them down behind the twist to create falling curls towards the front. You can split these into single plies to create more falling strands and trim them to the desired length.
