CROCHET TIP:
Beg every round with sc with 1 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
NOTE: These ch do NOT replace first sc/dc on round.

STRIPE PATTERN:
ROUND 1 (= from WS with off white): Work 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 2 (= from RS with off white): Work 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 3 (= from WS with off white): Work 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 4 (= from RS with off white): Work 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 5 (= from WS with light steel blue): Work 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 6 (= from RS with light steel blue): Work 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 7 (= from WS with light steel blue): Work 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 8 (= from RS with light steel blue): Work 1 sc in every dc.
Repeat rounds 1 to 8.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc by working 2 sc tog as follows: Insert hook in first st and pull yarn through, insert hook in next st and pull yarn through, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last YO and pull through, work next dc but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

PANTS:
Worked in the round, top down, but turn piece after every round to work alternately from RS and WS.
Work 140-147-154 (161-168) ch on hook size 3 mm with light steel blue 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, then * 1 sc in each of the first ch 6, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 120-126-132 (138-144) sc.
Continue with 1 sc in every sc for 2 more rounds. Then work 1 round with holes for tie as follows: 4 ch (= 1 dc + 1 ch), * skip 1 sc, 1 dc in next sc, 1 ch *, 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 ch and in every dc. Work 1 more round with 1 sc in every sc.
Now work an elevation in the back as follows: Work 10 sc past marker mid back, turn and work 1 sc in each of the first 20 sc, turn, work 1 sc in each of the first 30 sc, continue like this by work 10 sc more on every turn until 80-80-100 (100-120) sc in total have been worked.
Turn and work back to mid back again.

Continue in the round over all sts with STRIPE PATTERN - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When piece measures 15-17-18 (19-20) cm / 6"-6 3/4"-7" (7½"-8") mid front, insert 1 marker mid front as well, there should be 60-63-66 (69-72) sts between markers mid front and mid back.
On next round inc 1 st on each side of marker front and back by working 2 sc/dc in same st.
Repeat inc every round 3-3-4 (4-4) more times (= 4-4-5 (5-5) inc in total) = 136-142-152 (158-164) sts in total on round. Then finish legs separately.

LEG:
Work sl sts over the first 5 sc on round, then work sc over the next 58-61-66 (69-72) sts and finish with 5 sl sts over the last 5 sc on round. . Continue with stripe pattern in the round over these sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = inside of leg.
When leg measures 2-2-2 (3-3) cm / 3/4''-3/4''-3/4'' (1 1/8''-1 1/8''), dec 1 sc on each side of marker – READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 2-2½-3 (3½-4½) cm / 3/4"-7/8"-1" (1 1/4"-1 3/4") 6-6-6 (5-5) more times (= 7-7-7 (6-6) dec in total) = 44-47-52 (57-60) sc.
Continue to work until leg measures 16-20-22 (27-32) cm / 6 1/4"-8"-8 3/4" (10½"-12½") (finish after a stripe with off white). Then work 8 rounds sc with light steel blue.
Fasten off.
Work the other leg the same way, 10 sts mid front and mid back = gusset.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog opening between legs edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

TIE:
Work with off white on hook size 3 mm as follows: * ch 2, 1 sc in first ch *, repeat from *-* until tie measures approx. 80-85-90 (95-100) cm / 31½"-33½"-35½" (37½"-39½"), fasten off.
Thread the tie in the round with eyelet holes at the top of pants – start and finish mid front.

LEG: Work sl sts over the first 5 sc on round, then work sc over the next 58-61-66 (69-72) sts and finish with 5 sl sts over the last 5 sc on round. Continue with stripe pattern in the round over these sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = inside of leg...
