Barbie Month .20 Ken's Overalls

Good morning beautiful people!

So close to the end now, Ive had such fun working up all these patterns, and my kids have been very excited with the new clothing.

Today's pattern was a suggestion from Lisa at crochet quackers and I have to say, Im so thrilled with it. Yup, good Ol' Ken has gone country with his very own denim look overalls! I think they are super cute, and my girls love the idea of Farmer Ken taking care of all their toy animals!

First Leg 
7. ch2, hdc in the first 11 stitches, skip the rest and join to the 1st stitch to make a leg hole.
