Netted Beach Bottoms











                                 


  



Materials needed:

(I used 1 skein making a size small) LARGER SIZES 2+ skeins

-medium 4 yarn ( I used Caron Simply Soft in the color white )

-5 mm hook

-stitch markers

-scissors 

-measuring tape ( optional )




SIZES:

XS-S-M-L-XL-2XL 

        


         I haven't had pattern testers 

    test this so proceed at your own risk
 THIS IS MAINLY A GUIDELINE for you to create
         your own crochet beach bottoms


stitch pattern multiple : 

even number + 1 



finished hip size 34", 36", 40", 44", 48" 53"
finished waist 24" 26-28", 30-32", 34" 38" 42-44"




Notes:
-inc - increase
-CH3 doesn't count as a st
-sl st in 3rd CH of CH3 at the end of every row
-to increase DC CH2 DC in same st (CH2 counts as 2 st increase)
                   ( stitches shown below )

                         
                        IMPORTANT INFO
ch enough chs to accommodate for remaining sts left = MEANS IF YOU HAVE 4 DC sts from the previous row then you need to make 4 chains to accommodate for those 4 DC spaces










                      Actual pattern stitches


              CH3, sk 1 st, vst in next st, *CH 4 sk 4, 
             vst in next st* REP from * to *  until end 
          of row,ch enough chs to accommodate for remaining 
             sts left, sl st in CH3 at beginning of row





Swatch Gauge of the stitch pattern I am using
 I highly encourage you to make one and measure it
 yourself to make these pants in any size 

1.To make the gauge swatch CH 15 TO START

2. DC across 15 sts, CH3, turn
3. sk st, *vst in next, ch4 sk4 sts, vst in next st** ( rep from * to ** for 5 rows that will give you a 4" swatch

part 1

Pattern:

foundation row: loosely chain 96 ( 106, 122 ,136 ,152 ,172 )

step two, sl st making a loop, CH3

ROW 1: DC across every st 96 106 122 136 152 172

you could also use a number in between your waist & hip measurements to create a wider waist band to fit wider hips( ex. WAIST 26" HIP 36"= )31 would be the number I used & multiply that # by st gauge ( 31x4= 124 CHS ) but your increase rows would be different from the ones I provided.



                                           when you do your increase rows 
                  use the regular stitch pattern just 
            *ADD 2CHS BETWEEN A VST* ( DC CH2 DC in same st }

                   PART 2

*ALL SIZES cut off yarn, weave in ends, make sure your work is WS out before you move on to the crotch part


          this is what you should have at this point after

    increase rows complete!! you should have approximately 14-16 
  rows that are approximately 7"- 8" in length according to my math.




                 now it's time to make the crotch area



        find the middle of the front and back of your work.

                 place st markers in those sts. 
          I measured about 2 1/2 " wide for the crotch.



place 2 st markers in the end of the vst on both sides of the middle marked st 



Reconnect yarn and crochet across 1 vst CH4 , vst CH4, 1 vst for 5 rows
you can adjust the amount of rows to your liking 


slip stitch across the crochet to connect it to the other side of the work


Reconnect yarn in a place where you want the seam to not be shown ( I placed mine on the inner thigh area so it will run down the inside of my leg as normal seams do)


proceed with the pattern starting with a CH3 
( when you see a vst + ch4 sk4 from the previous row then place 
another vst + ch4 sk4 continuing the pattern around the leg hole )





you can see on the left side I have continued the pattern and the right side hasn't been touched yet 
( sorry this is the best way for me to explain this part ) 







                Netted crochet bottoms video tutorial ( to show how these bottoms are constructed )

for a regular  30" inseam you need 42 rows on each leg 
for a long/tall 32 " inseam you need 48 rows on each leg
cut off yarn and weave in all your ends 


take your waist # in inches, multiply by 4 + 40 ( ex. 26" x 4 = 104 + 40 CHS) so I would chain about  148 CHS to use as a drawstring around the waist of my bottoms.

WE ARE FINISHED !!!  I hope you all loved this pattern. I Would love to see everyones work so call me, beep me if you wanna reach me 🤟🏾







                        THANK YOU!
