BIKINI-TOP:

Crochet gauge: 22 dc x 11 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

Crochet tips: At the beginning of every row ch 3 replaces 1 dc and every row ends with 1 sl st in the ch 3 at the beginning of previous row.

Increasing tips: Inc 2 dc by crocheting 3 dc in dc with marker.

Bikini-top: The piece is crocheted from the bottom up in 2 pieces, then put together with a lace lower edge.
1st piece: Ch 42-48-54.
1st row: 1 dc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the 2 following ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 dc in the last ch = 27-31-35 dc. Put a marker in the center dc and move the marker up each row. Continue to crochet 1 dc in each dc – read Crochet tips – and at the same time inc 2 dc at marker on the following 4-4-5 rows – see Increasing tips = 35-39-45 dc.
Now begin decreasing at center of piece:
1st row: 16-18-21 dc, skip over 3 dc, 16-18-21 dc, turn the work.
2nd row: 15-17-20 dc, skip over 2 dc, 15-17-20 dc, turn the work.
3rd row: 14-16-19 dc, skip over 2 dc, 14-16-19 dc, turn the work.
Continue decreasing in this manner, by skipping over the 2 center dc (there will be 1 dc less at each side of center after every row).
When 4 dc remain cut yarn and fasten = a total of 20-22-26 rows, the piece measures approx. 18-20-24 cm.
Crochet an identical 2nd piece.

Then crochet a row of ch-loops to join the 2 sides together – see Fig.1.
Start at one side of one piece and from wrong side:
1 sc in first dc, ch 5 (= 1 dc + ch 2), skip over 2 dc, * 1 dc in the next dc, ch 2, skip over 2 dc *, repeat * - * a total of 7-9-11 times and finish with 1 dc in last dc, but
for Size S skip over 3 dc instead of 2 dc two times and for Size L skip over 1 dc instead of 2 dc two times
= 8-10-12 ch-loops, then ch 3, 1 dc in first dc on the next piece, * ch 2, skip over 2 dc, 1 dc in the next dc *, repeat * - * as on 1st piece = 18-22-26 dc on row, turn the work.

Next row (= lace edge): ch 1, skip over 2 ch, * in the next dc crochet: 2 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 dtr, 1 tr and 2 dc, skip over 2 ch, 1 dc and ch 2 *, repeat * - * a total of 3-4-5 times, in the next dc crochet: 2 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 dtr, 1 tr and 2 dc, skip over 2 ch, 1 dc and ch 1, in the next ch (= center ch-loop between the 2 pieces) crochet: 2 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 dtr, 1 tr and 2 dc, skip over 1 ch, 1 dc and ch 2, * in the next dc crochet: 2 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 dtr, 1 tr and 2 dc, skip over 2 ch, 1 dc and ch 2 *, repeat * - * a total of 3-4-5 times, in the next dc crochet: 2 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 dtr, 1 tr and 2 dc, skip over 2 ch and finish with 1 sl st in ch 3 at the beginning of previous row.

Ribbon: Thread the wide ribbon through the ch-loops at lower edge and tie in back. Thread each of the narrow ribbons through the hole at the top of each bra piece, fold in half, then tie at the back of the neck.

Decorate with a small silk flower at center front.





SHORTS:

Sizes: S - M - L

Hip measurements: 90/94 - 96/100 - 102/106 cm
[35-3/8"/37" - 37.75"/39-3/8" - 40-1/8"/41.75"]
The shorts should fit snugly, make the appropriate size for you.

Materials: DROPS PARIS from Garnstudio
200-200-250 gr nr 17, natural

DROPS 4.5 mm [US 7] short circular needles, or size needed to obtain correct gauge.

Accessories: approx. 3 meters natural white ribbon (approx. 10 mm width) for band around stomach

Gauge: 24 sts x 23 rows in rib = 10 x 10 cm (unstretched)

Rib: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat * - *.

Body: Cast on 160-170-180 sts on smaller short circular needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit rib (if you wish to have a tighter rib at top of shorts, knit together with a strand of elastic for the first 3 cm). When the piece measures 22-25-28 cm divide sts on 3 st holders as follows: 32-35-37 sts on st holder-1 (= front right leg), put 15 sts on st holder-2 (= crotch front) and put 32-35-37 sts on st holder-3 (= left front leg) = 81-85-91 sts remain on needles (= back).
Now continue with rib back and forth on needles over sts on back and put the outermost sts at each side onto st holder-1 and st holder-3 as follows: * Put the 5-4-4 outermost sts at the beginning of row (seen from the right side) onto st holder-1, knit rib to last 5-4-4 sts and put these onto st holder-3, turn and knit back over all sts *, repeat * - * a total of 5-6-7 times. On the next row (= right side) put the outermost 8-11-10 sts at the beginning of row onto st holder-1 and the 8-11-10 sts at end of row onto st holder-3 = 15 sts remain on needles, bind off in rib (there are now 65-70-75 sts on st holder-1 and st holder-3). Alternatively, put the 15 sts on a st holder and join with crotch (below) in Kitchener st.

Crotch: Put the 15 sts from st holder-2 back on needles and knit rib back and forth until crotch measures 11-13-15 cm, bind off in rib. Sew crotch edge to edge to the 15 sts bound off on back. Or join with Kitchener st if you have put those sts on a st holder (see above).

Right leg: Put the 65-70-75 sts on st holder-1 on a short circular needle, then pick up 21-26-29 sts along crotch edge = 86-96-104 sts. Join and knit rib until leg measures 4-4-5 cm (from picked up sts). Bind off loosely in rib.

Left leg: Knit the same as the right.

Ribbon: Wrap a ribbon 2 times around stomach for decoration and make a knot at the back.

Ich verstehe leider bei den Hotpants den Teil zwischen * und * nicht. Wenn ich die jeweils 4 Maschen auf Faden 1 und 3 legen soll, auf welche Seite des Fadens kommen diese jeweils bzw. wie soll es dann aussehen? Ich habe es versucht, aber die Maschen liegen jetzt kreuz und quer bzw. überschneiden sich die Fäden 1 und 3 nun - das kann so nicht stimmen. Ein Bild oder ein Diagramm für diesen Abschnitt würden sehr helfen. Vielen Dank!

Liebe Anna, lieder gibt es für diese ältere Anleitung keine Skizze. Haben Sie die Konstruktion verstanden? Nach dem Hauptteil wird die Arbeit in vordere und hintere Seite geteilt und die vordere Seite (mit je einer Beinhälfte und dem Schritt) wird auf 3 Fäden oder - wenn es für Sie praktischer ist - Hilfsnadeln gelegt. Wenn Sie die Hose aufeinanderfalten sehen Sie jeweils genau, auf welchen Faden oder Nadel die stillgelegten Maschen kommen.
