Notes  

 

Shorts underneath:

Ch 80, sl st tog to form a ring.  Be careful not to twist chain.

Round 1: BLO: Ch 2, hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. Sl st tog into the first hdc, not the ch 2.  This pulls the stitches tog to not leave a hole when you sl st.

Round 2: BLO: Ch 2, hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. Sl st tog the same way as above now and throughout.

Round 3: Both Loops now and throughout: Ch 2, hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. Sl st tog.

Rounds 4- 15: Repeat Round 3.

Round 16: Leg hole: Ch 2, in same st hdc. (count that as 1 st) Hdc in the next 39 sts, then join to the 1st hdc.  This makes the first leg hole.

Round 17: Leg hole: Ch 2, hdc in next st and in every st around. Sl st tog.

Round 18: Leg hole: Ch 1, sc in next st and in every st around. Sl st tog. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Attach yarn to crotch, ch 2, (count that as 1 st) Hdc in the next 39 sts, then join to the 1st hdc.  This makes the second leg hole. Repeat Rounds 15 and 16 just like the other leg hole.  Fasten off and weave in ends. Now sew up crotch seam.

Skirt:

Round 1: Now go back to Row 2 and the front loops that are still open.  Attach the pink yarn to the back of the shorts.  Ch 2, hdc in each st around, sl st tog.

Round 2: Ch 3, ch 1, dc in same st. *Skip 1 st, dc, ch 1, dc in next st.  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Round 3: Sl st to ch 1 sp from previous round, ch 4, dc. Skip over to next ch 1 sp, dc, ch 1, dc in that sp.  Sl st tog.

Rounds 4- 20: Repeat Round 3.

Round 21: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Sl st tog.

Round 22: Ch 3, 4dc in same st, *skip 2 sts, sc, skip 2 sts, 5 dc (shell).  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog. Fasten off and weave in ends.

I used a pattern of 3 brown round, 1 blue mint round.  Then I ended with sc round, shell row in blue mint.

I use elastic on all my daughter’s clothes. So I take the ¼" elastic, measure it to my daughter and cut it. Then I sew the one end into a circle. Then I sc the elastic to the first row of hdc of the shorts. (sc around the elastic not through it) Fasten off and weave in ends.
