INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides):
Work until 1 treble crochet remains before A.2, work 2 treble crochets in next treble crochet, work A.2 and 2 treble crochets in next treble crochet (= 2 treble crochets increased). Repeat in the other side (= 4 treble crochets increased on round).

----------------------------------------------------------

SHORTS:
Work in the round top down.

Work 244-274-299-329-369-404 chain stitches with Safran on hook size 2.5 mm and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round = mid back.
Work first round as follows: Work 1 chain stitch (= 1 double crochet) - read CROCHET INFO, 1 double crochet in each of the first 3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, work from *-* 48-54-59-65-73-80 times in total = 196-220-240-264-296-324 double crochets. Then work 1 double crochet in every double crochet until piece measures 2 cm. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Now work in the round according to diagram A.1 as follows: Work A.1a (shows how rounds begin and end and is worked in addition to A.1b), work A.1b 49-55-60-66-74-81 times in total in width. Continue until A.1a/b have been worked vertically.

Then work the shorts higher in the back as follows: Work 10-11-12-13-14-15 double crochets past the marker thread mid back, turn and work 1 slip stitch in first stitch, then 1 double crochet in each of the next 19-21-23-25-27-29 double crochets, turn and work 1 slip stitch in first stitch, then 1 double crochet in each of the next 29-31-35-38-41-44 stitches (slip stitches are also worked). Continue like this by working 10-11-12-13-14-15 stitches more on every turn until a total of 140-154-192-208-224-240 stitches have been worked. Turn again and work until marker thread mid back.

Now work in the round as follows: Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 47-53-58-64-72-79 stitches (= half back piece), A.2 over the next 5 double crochets (= the side), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 92-104-114-126-142-156 stitches (= front piece), A.2 over the next 5 double crochets (= the side), work 1 treble crochet in each of the last 47-53-58-64-72-79 stitches (= half back piece).
Continue pattern like this (then repeat last round in A.2) - AT THE SAME TIME increase in the sides and mid back as follows:
SIDES:
Increase on each side of A.1, in each side as follows - read INCREASE TIP-1! Increase like this every 3rd-4th-4th-4th-4th-4th round 9-8-8-9-9-10 times in total (= 36-32-32-36-36-40 treble crochets increased).
MID BACK:
When piece measures 15-16-17-19-20-22 cm (measured mid front), increase mid back as follows – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this with 2 treble crochets mid back on every round 4-8-10-10-10-10 times in total, then increase 4 treble crochets on every round 5-3-3-3-3-3 times in total (= 28-28-28-32-32-32 treble crochets increased).
When all increases are done there are 260-280-300-332-364-396 treble crochets on round. Continue with 1 treble crochet in every treble crochet until piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm mid front and 26-28-31-33-35-37 cm mid back.

Now divide for legs as follows: Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first 5-5-6-6-6-7 treble crochets on round, turn and work back over the first 10-10-12-12-12-14 treble crochets (i.e. 5-5-6-6-6-7 treble crochets on each side of marker thread mid back). These 10-10-12-12-12-14 treble crochets = gusset. Work treble crochets back and forth over these treble crochets for 10-11-12-13-14-15 cm, cut the thread. Fasten gusset edge to edge to the middle 10-10-12-12-12-14 stitches towards mid front. Then work leg.

LEG:
Work 1 treble crochet in each of the 115-125-133-149-165-179 treble crochets around one leg, work in addition A.3 (= 7 treble crochets) over A.2 and work 26-28-32-34-36-38 treble crochet along gusset = 148-160-172-190-208-224 treble crochets. Then work 2-2-3-3-4-4 rounds with treble crochets - on last round increase 8-8-8-2-8-4 treble crochets evenly – read INCREASE TIP-3 = 156-168-180-192-216-228 treble crochets.
Now work in the round according to diagram A.4 as follows: Work A.4a (shows how rounds begin and end and is worked in addition to A.4b/c), work A.4b 77-83-89-95-107-113 times in total, A.1d. Continue until A.4a/b/c are done vertically = 156-168-180-192-216-228 treble crochets.
Now work in the round according to diagram A.5 as follows: Work A.5a (shows how rounds begin and end and is worked in addition to A.5b/c), A.5b, A.5c 12-13-14-15-17-18 times in total, and A.5d. Continue until A.5a/b/c/d have been worked vertically. Fasten off. Work the other leg the same way.

TIE RIBBON:
Work 120-140-150-160-170-180 cm with LOOSE chain stitches, turn and work 1 slip stitch in every chain stitch. Thread the tie in the middle row with eyelet holes at the top of shorts – start mid front.

Hannah, maybe it’s your length, not sure though. Anyway, DROPS, I need some help with the pipes. I don’t understand how you devide the pipes in two even parts. Help please?

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 09:27:

Dear Sarah, when you have the correct number of sts for your size and piece measures 22-32 cm (see size) on mid front/26-37 cm on mid back you work first a gusset over the middle 10-14 sts on the middle: working the last section under SHORTS, just before LEGS. Crocheting this gusset will divide the piece into 2 equal parts that will be then worked in the round over the sts from previous round on shorts + along the stitches worked for the gusset. Happy crocheting!

Hannah 13.07.2019 - 11:10:

Oh wow! I thought I was the only one with this problem, but apparently not. Maybe DROPS could change the pattern a little?

Grandma 13.07.2019 - 11:09:

Yes, the same for me Oma. I even used the exact same yarn but still...

Heisann, jeg prøver å hekle denne flotte shortsen, men sliter litt her: nå kan det hekles rundt diagram A.1a den er grei. Men på A.1b der det skal hekles fastmaske om luftmaskebuen? Hvordan gjør jeg det når det ikke er noen lufmaskebuer? Står litt fast her😅

DROPS Design 30.04.2019 kl. 09:32:

Hei Anette. Jeg antar du mener på siste omgangen i A.1b (4 rad, om du ikke teller med raden med stjerne) ? omgangen før hekles slik: 1 stav, 2 luftmasker, 1 stav, 1 luftmaske osv. (altså annenhver stav og luftmaske/luftmaskebue). På siste omgangen skal det hekles fastmasker rundt hele omgangen, annenhver fastmaske i staven og annenhver fastmaske om luftmasken/luftmaskebuen. God fornøyelse

Kuuluuko lahkeiden kuvion viidennellä rivillä todellakin tehdä 8 ketjusilmukkaa peräkkäin? Kuviossa ei käsketä tekemään välillä kiinteitä silmukoita ketjusilmukkakaariin mutta kuvan perusteella niin on kuitenkin tehty.

Buongiorno... grazie x la risposta... ma purtroppo non so lavorare ai ferri ma solo ad uncinetto... spero che riusciate a pubblicare uno schema di questi pantaloncini per uncinetto per bambini. Grazie per l'attenzione

Silvia 18.09.2018 - 16:09:

Buongiorno. Vorrei sapere se potete pubblicare uno schema per poter realizzare questi pantaloncini o modello analogo in taglie da bambina (3/4, 5/6, 7/8 anni). Grazie

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 06:47:

Buongiorno Silvia, potrebbe provare con questi pantaloncini da bambini! In ogni caso grazie per il suggerimento, lo inoltreremo al settore design. Buon lavoro!
