Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Crochet tension: Remember hook size is only a guide.
22 treble crochets x 11 rows with hook size 3 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
NOTE: Due to different crochet techniques, the crochet tension can vary from person to person; you can increase or decrease a hook size if necessary to get the right tension.

Crochet tip: At beginning of each row replace 1 treble crochet with 3 chain stitches and each row is finished with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of previous row.

Increase tip: Increase 2 treble crochets by working 3 treble crochets in the treble crochet with marker thread.
-------------------------------------------------

Bikini: The piece is worked bottom up in 2 parts which are then joined together with a lace edge at bottom. Crochet school - see page 2.
Work 42-48-54 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm and Safran.
Row 1: 1 treble crochet in 5th chain stitch from hook, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 2 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 treble crochet in last chain stitch = 27-31-35 treble crochets. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle treble crochet and allow the marker thread to follow your work upwards.
Then work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet - read Crochet tip - at the same time, increase 2 treble crochets in the middle of the piece on the next 4-4-5 rows - see Increase tip = 35-39-45 treble crochets. Now start to decrease in middle of piece:
Decrease row 1: 16-18-21 treble crochets, skip 3 treble crochets, 16-18-21 treble crochets, turn piece.
Decrease row 2: 15-17-20 treble crochets, skip 2 treble crochets, 15-17-20 treble crochets, turn piece.
Decrease row 3: 14-16-19 treble crochets, skip 2 treble crochets, 14-16-19 treble crochets, turn piece.
Continue to decrease in this way, by skipping the middle 2 treble crochets (you will then get 1 treble crochet less on each side of middle on each row). When there are 4 treble crochets left at top, cut strand = 20-22-26 rows in total, piece measures approx. 18-20-24 cm.

Work 1 more piece in the same way.
Then work 1 row of chain-spaces to join the 2 parts together - see fig.1 - start outermost in the one side and work from the wrong side: 1 double crochet in first treble crochet, 5 chain stitches (= 1 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches), skip 2 treble crochets, * 1 treble crochet in next treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets *, repeat from *-* a total of 7-9-11 times and finish with 1 treble crochet in last treble crochet, but in Size S you need to skip 3 treble crochets 2 times instead of just 2 treble crochets and in Size L you need to skip 1 treble crochet 2 times instead of just 2 treble crochets = 8-10-12 chain-spaces, then work 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in first treble crochet on the second part, * 2 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets, 1 treble crochet in next treble crochet *, repeat from *-* as for part 1 = 18-22-26 treble crochets on the row, turn piece.
The last row is worked as follows (= lace edge): 1 chain stitch, skip 2 chain stitches, * in next treble crochet work: 2 treble crochets, 1 double treble crochet, 1 triple treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, 1 triple treble crochet, 1 double treble crochet and 2 treble crochets, skip 2 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet and 2 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 3-4-5 times, in next treble crochet work: 2 treble crochets, 1 double treble crochet, 1 triple treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, 1 triple treble crochet, 1 double treble crochet and 2 treble crochets, skip 2 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet and 1 chain stitch, in next chain stitch (= in middle of chain-space between the 2 parts) work: 2 treble crochets, 1 double treble crochet, 1 triple treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, 1 triple treble crochet, 1 double treble crochet and 2 treble crochets, skip 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet and 2 chain stitches, * in next treble crochet work: 2 treble crochets, 1 double treble crochet, 1 triple treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, 1 triple treble crochet, 1 double treble crochet and 2 treble crochets, skip 2 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet and 2 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 3-4-5 times, in next treble crochet work: 2 treble crochets, 1 double treble crochet, 1 triple treble crochet, 2 chain stitches, 1 triple treble crochet, 1 double treble crochet and 2 treble crochets, skip 2 chain stitches and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of previous row.

Silk ribbon: Thread the widest silk ribbon up and down through the chain-spaces at bottom of bikini and tie at back. Thread a silk ribbon through the hole at top of each bikini part and fold the ribbon double, then tie at back of neck.
You can decorate with a small silk flower mid front.




HOTPANTS:

Sizes: S - M - L
Fits hip size: 90/94 - 96/100 - 102/106 cm. The garment may seem a bit small, but is quite elastic because of the rib pattern.
Materials: Paris
200-200-250 g colour no 17, off white
DROPS Short circular needle size 4.5 mm.
Accessories: approx. 3 metres off white silk ribbon (approx. 10 mm in width) for the waist band.
--------------------------------------------------------

Knitting tension: Remember needle size is only a guide.
24 stitches x 23 rows with needle size 4.5 mm and rib = 10 x 10 cm (when rib is not stretches).

Rib: * K1, P1 *, repeat from *-*.
--------------------------------------------------------

Front and back piece: Cast on 160-170-180 stitches with short circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib (if you would like a tighter waist band, you can work thin elastic with the strand for the first 3 cm). When piece measures 22-25-28 cm divide the stitches as follows onto 3 threads: Place 32-35-37 stitches on thread-1 (= right leg front), place 15 stitches on thread-2 (= crotch front) and place 32-35-37 stitches on thread-3 (= left leg front) = 81-85-91 stitches left on needle (= back piece). Now continue working rib back and forth over the back piece at the same time as the outermost stitches in each side are placed on thread-1 and thread-3 as follows: * place the outermost 5-4-4 stitches at beginning of row (seen from right side) onto thread-1, work rib until there are 5-4-4 stitches left and place these stitches on thread-3, turn and work back over all stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 5-6-7 times. On next row (= right side) place the outermost 8-11-10 stitches at beginning of row onto thread-1 and the 8-11-10 stitches at end of row onto thread-3 = 15 stitches left on needle, cast off in rib (there are now 65-70-75 stitches on thread-1 and thread-3).

Crotch: Place the 15 stitches from thread-2 back on needle and work rib back and forth on needle until crotch measures 11-13-15 cm, cast off in rib. Sew the crotch edge to edge to the 15 stitches cast off on back piece.

Right length: Place the 65-70-75 stitches from thread-1 into short circular needle size 4.5 mm, in addition knit up 21-26-29 stitches along the crotch edge = 86-96-104 stitches. Work rib in the round until leg measures 4-4-5 cm (from where the stitches were knitted up). Loosely cast off in rib.

Left leg: Work as for right.

Silk ribbon: You can wrap a silk ribbon twice around the waist for decoration and tie at 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.
