5 oz pink worsted weight yarn approx.
|Measurements||my daughter was wearing a 4/5. This skirt is wide enough to fit a 6, I believe. The elastic is what makes it fit the waist.|
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.
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 3, dc in each st around, sl st tog.
Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same st, ch 2, 2 dc all in the same st (shell). *Skip 2 sts, 2dc-ch2-2dc in next st. Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.
Round 3: Sl st over to ch 2 sp from previous row, ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc all in that sp. *Skip to next ch 2 sp and 2dc, ch 2, 2dc in that sp. Repeat from * around.
Rounds 4- 16: Repeat Round 3.
I used pink on Rounds 1-4, brown on 5-6, pink on 7-9, brown 10-11, pink on 12-14, brown on 15-16, pink edging.
Round 17: edging: Ch 1, sc in the stitches and in the ch 2 space, I ch 3 and sc back into the ch 2 sp. Fasten off and weave in ends.
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.
