There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Replace first sc at beg of every round with 1 ch and finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

Work until 2 sc remain before marker mid back, work 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc (marker is between these sts) and 2 sc in next sc (= 2 sts inc).

The piece is worked top down.
Ch 224-246-274-297-326 on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid back.
Work first round as follows: ch 1, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 7 ch *, repeat from *-* until 0-6-2-1-6 ch remain, work 1 sc in each of these ch = 196-216-240-260-286 sc. READ CROCHET TIP!
Continue working 1 sc in every sc until piece measures 2 cm / 3/4''. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Now work 1 round with eyelet holes as follows: ch 4, skip 1 sc, * 1 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. On next round work 1 sc in every dc and every ch.
Then work the shorts higher in the back as follows: Work 10-11-12-13-14 sc past the marker mid back, turn and work 1 sl st in first st, then 1 sc in each of the next 19-21-23-25-27 sc, turn and work 1 sl st in first st, then 1 sc in each of the next 29-32-35-38-41 sts (also work in the sl st).
Continue like this by working 10-11-12-13-14 sts more on every turn until a total of 140-154-192-208-224 sts have been worked. Turn again and work until marker mid back.
Continue to work 1 round with sc while AT THE SAME TIME inc 14-16-18-20-22 sc evenly = 210-232-258-280-308 sc. Continue with sc in the round until piece measures 14-15-16-17-19 cm / 5½"-6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4"-7½" mid front.
Continue with sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 2 sts mid back - SEE INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every other round a total of 7-7-7-8-8 times and then every round 7-7-7-8-8 times = 238-260-286-312-340 sc. Now piece measures approx. 21-22-23-25-27 cm / 8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9 3/4"-10 5/8" mid front and 26-27-29-31-33 cm / 10 1/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13" mid back.
Now divide for legs as follows: Work 1 sc in each of the first 5-5-6-6-7 sc on round, turn and work back over the first 10-10-12-12-14 sc (i.e. 5-5-6-6-7 sts on each side of marker mid back). These 10-10-12-12-14 sc = gusset. Work sc back and forth over these sts for 10-11-12-13-14 cm / 4"-4 3/8"-4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½", cut the yarn. Sew gusset edge to edge to the middle 10-10-12-12-14 sts towards mid front. Then work the legs.

Work 1 sc in each of the 109-120-131-144-156 sc around the leg, work in addition 26-28-31-34-36 sc along the gusset = 135-148-162-178-192 sc. Work 1 round with sc while at the same time inc 1-4-6-6-8 sc evenly = 136-152-168-184-200 sc. Continue with 1 sc in every sc for 3-3-4-4-5 cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1½''-1½''-2''. Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: ch 4 (= 1 dc + 1 ch), * skip 1 sc, 1 dc in next sc, ch 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (= 68-76-84-92-100 ch-spaces).
ROUND 2: Work 1 sc in every ch and 1 sc in every dc = 136-152-168-184-200 sc.
ROUND 3: Work as 1st round.
ROUND 4: ch 1, * skip 1 ch-space, in next ch-space work 7 tr, skip 1 ch-space and work 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* around the entire leg but instead of 1 sc work 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round (= 17-19-21-23-25 tr-groups = fans).
ROUND 5: 1 sc in first dc on first fan, [* ch 3, 1 sc in first ch (= 1 picot), skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times (i.e. 3 picots over 1 fan), 1 sc in first dc on next fan], repeat from [-] the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Cut the yarn.

Work the same way around the other leg.

Chain a band measuring 120-130-140-150-160 cm / 47"-52"-55"-59"-63" with LOOSE ch sts, turn and work 1 sl st in every ch. Thread the tie in the round with eyelet holes at the top of shorts – start mid front.

This pattern has been corrected. .

LEG: ..ROUND 4: ch 1, * skip 1 ch-space, in next ch-space work 7 tr, skip 1 ch-space and work 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* around the entire leg but instead of 1 sc work 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round (= 17-19-21-23-25 tr-groups = fans).

Delphine Dandois 19.09.2016 - 11:54:

Merci beaucoup. Ce que je n'ai pas encore bien compris c'est si lorsque nous sommes à la fin du tour 3 par exemple, quand j'arrive à la mc du tour 2, est-ce que je dois faire une ms dans cette mc ou la passer et faire juste une mc dans la ml du début du tour 3?

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 13:11:

Bonjour Mme Dandois, à la fin du tour 3, vous faites 1 mc dans la ml (= la 1ère m du tour) puis 1 ml (= 1ère ms du tour 4), ne crochetez pas dans la mc, mais faites bien la mc dans la ml pour fermer le tour. Bon crochet!

Delphine Dandois 19.09.2016 - 11:16:

Bonjour, quand vous dites dans les astuces crochet de remplacer la première ms du tour par une ml, faut il, lorsque l'on fait la ms suivante (la deuxième du tour) ,crocheter dans la 1ere ms du tour précédent ou faut il en sauter une? Et lorsque l'on arrive à la fin du tour, faut il crocheter dans la mc du rang précédent ou faut il directement faire une mc dans la ml du début sans crocheter la mc du rang précédent? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 11:33:

Bonjour Mme Dandois, quand la 1ère ml au début du tour remplace la 1ère ms, vous crochetez la ms suivante du tour dans la ms suivante du tour précédent, à la fin du tour, terminez par 1 mc dans la ml, puis faites de nouveau 1 ml (= 1ère ms), 1 ms dans la ms suivante et ainsi de suite. Bon crochet!

Jeg er igang med disse lækre shorts i str M. Jeg har brug for hjælp i forhold til kilen inden benene. Der står at jeg skal hælke frem og tilbage. Men ikke hvor mange gange?. I benene står der så at jeg skal hækle 28 fm langs kilen.Betyder det at kilen skal hækles over 28 rækker eller hvordan skal det forstås?

DROPS Design 13.05.2016 kl. 12:22:

Hej Gitte. Du haekler kilen: Hækl fm frem og tilbage over disse i 10-11-12-13-14 cm, klip tråden. = dvs 11 cm i str. M. Du haekler i benene 28 fm op langs de 11 cm. God fornöjelse.

Lynn Whinery 13.01.2016 - 08:17:

Why aren't your lovely patterns available as pdfs for easy download?

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 10:24:

Dear Mrs Whinery, You cannot download our patterns. You need to either see them online or print them. The only alternative you have is to print as .PDF - so if you can print as .PDF from your phone, a file will be created, instead of a print, that you can store. Happy crocheting!

Hilde Houben 05.06.2015 - 16:15:

Ik wil deze short haken voor mijn dochter, maar ik zou smallere maten moeten hebben. Bovenste breedtemaat bij haar is 36 cm, op de taille 41 cm en bovenbeen 20,5 cm.

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 14:16:

Hoi Hilde. Je kan het patroon herberekenen met hulp van de stekenverhouding. Wij kunnen helaas niet helpen met individuele aanpassingen op de gratis patronen. Veel haakplezier.

Micki Brutvan 27.05.2015 - 20:24:

The pattern instructions recommend a Crochet Hook Size 3 mm / C. I began working with that size hook and found it to be far too large to obtain the proper gauge. I am currently working with a #3 stainless steel hook, and the gauge still is not correct. If I go any smaller in hook size, I will not be able to work the yarn. Please advise as I would love to complete these shorts before summer is over!

DROPS Design 28.05.2015 kl. 10:29:

Dear Mrs Brutvan, you have to crochet as tight as possible to get theh best result and the correct tension. You may have to recalculate the pattern adapted to your own gauge. Remember you can also get help and individual tips & advices from your DROPS Store. Happy crocheting!

Sandra Karinsdotter 19.04.2015 - 21:18:

Vilket stussmått motsvarar stl M respektive S? Och hur ska man ändra mönstret på enklaste vis om man hamnar precis mittemellan de måtten?

DROPS Design 21.04.2015 kl. 13:21:

Hej Sandra. Se maalskitsen nederst paa mönstret. Her staar alle maal per störrelse i cm. Du kan sammenligne disse med dine egne for at vaelge störrelse. Sidder du midt i mellem, kan du aendre antal masker ved hjaelp af heklefastheden (antal masker per 10 cm) Men husk at antallet passer med mönstret.

Patricia 23.07.2014 - 09:05:

Merci beaucoup, je comprends mieux. Pourriez vous m'indiquer le total en cm du tour de taille pour du M. Je crains que mon ouvrage soit trop grand, malgré que mon échantillon soit correct avec un crochet 2.5. Merci

DROPS Design 23.07.2014 kl. 09:15:

Bonjour Patricia, vous trouverez toutes les mesures pour chaque taille dans le schéma en bas de page, les mesures sont en cm et prises d'un côté à l'autre, ouvrage posé à plat. Pensez à bien vérifier et conserver votre tension soit 26 ms x 28 rangs = 10 x 10 cm. Bon crochet!

Patricia 23.07.2014 - 08:48:

Bonjour, très joli modèle mais je rencontre quelques difficultés pour obtenir les 260 ms pour une taille M.Qu'entendez vous par 7 fois tous les 2 tours et 7 fois tous les tours. Je vous remercie pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 23.07.2014 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Patricia, quand l'ouvrage mesure 15 cm au milieu devant, vous avez 232 ms vous augmentez alors ainsi *1 tour avec augmentation, 1 tour sans augmentation*, répétez 7 fois de *-* (= 14 tours et 14 m augmentées), puis crochetez 7 tours avec augmentations tous les tours (7 tours, 14 m augmentées) = 260 m. Bon crochet!
