Romper…

 

post-4896-135897729008_thumb.jpg

 

DNBO after 2nd leg.

 

 

Ch 18 and join to form a ring.

 

Rows 1- 7: dc around increasing by one ea row. (from 19 dc to 25 dc at row 5) stagger increases.

 

T Row 1: Align the two legs and join with 6 sc, ch 1. Begin working in dc around the leg sections, Put the first dc in the same stitch as the sc join.

 

 

It might be helpful here to go to the back to Mark out your increase stitches. Put markers in the stitches that are 7 from the Centre Back join on each side.

 

Dc to your first marker… work [2dc, 1dc, 2dc, 1dc, 2dc, 1dc, 2dc] over the five stitches, work 1 TR into the CB join, work [ ] again then continue in dc to beginning of row being sure to put stitch in sc-joined stitch on this side, join.

 

Row T2-T3: work evenly in dc.

 

Row T4: work dc but work 1 decrease on each side of front and back (4 decreases).

 

Row T5: dc evenly. Break off.

 

Divide into front and back sections. Lay the pants out flat and mark the ‘side seams’. I have 20 sts in front and 21 for the back with 3 sts between on each side. Att yarn at front

 

 

Front…

 

Hdc in 20, ch 1 and turn.

 

. hdc in 1, hdc dec, hdc in 14, hdc dec, hdc in last.

 

. hdc in 6, sc in 6, hdc in 6.

 

. hdc in 5, hdc/sc in next sc in 6, sc/hdc in next, hdc in 5.

 

. sc across. Break off and tidy all ends.

 

Back…

 

, hdc across making 1 dec in the middle

 

. hdc in 1, hdc dec, hdc in 14, hdc dec, hdc in last.

 

. hdc in 7, sc in 4, hdc in 7.

 

Start straps…

.hdc in 5, hdc dec, ch 1 and turn.

 

. hdc in 6 for 5 rows.

Sc in 1, ch 2, sk 1, sc in 2, ch 2. sk 1, sc in last.

 

The trims. Make the dandelions by wrapping yarn around your fingers as in the pic.

Tie the loops in the centre and fluff your dandelions.

If you want the white fluffy version you can cut the wraps as shown.

Work the stems by using surface crochet and a different green for effect.

Note… I don’t think I would use navy again for this outfit… it is a bit dark. L

Row 1: *hdc in 1, 2 hdc in next* rep to end starting in 2nd ch from hook. (39hdc)

Row 8: hdc in 11, sk 21, hdc in 23, sk21, hdc in11.

 

Rows 9-11: hdc evenly. DNBO at the end. You are now at the lower left back edge. Because this is for a boy, your button lops should go on this side.

 

Work HDC up the left edge working button loops (I did 2) as you go. Work around the neck with [2hdc in 1, hdc in next] work hdc along the back right edge. Break off and tidy all ends. Sew on buttons.

 

Sleeves… join the yarn in the armhole. Work a sc then work in hdc in a spiral around the armhole. Make the sleeves as long as you like them. Finish by working a sc then a slst to end the spiral. Break off and tidy all ends. Finish with a row of White hdc. Tidy all ends.

Some patterns just have to be made for the fun factor... may not be heirlooms but majorly cute.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

 

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

 

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker , I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.
