MATERIALS: Light Weight Cotton Yarn: Two 50 gr balls of no. 5 cotton (175 yds per 50 gr ball) in Ecru. Crochet hook size B/1 (English size 12) or size to give gauge. Some elastic thread.
SIZES: Misses' 10-12-14. Directions for sizes 12 and 14 are given in parentheses.
ADVICE: A cord can be a simple chain as is the case in this pattern, but there are many other ways to make a cord. A cord can be made by twisting, braiding or using the technique of macramé.
Chain (ch) Single crochet (sc) . Half double crochet (hdc)
Double crochet (dc) Slip stitch (sl st)
Picot: in the same st work: (1 sc, ch 3 and 1 dc), skip 2 sts
Fancy st: * 1 dc, ch 1, skip 1 st *; on following rows work the dc between the dc of the previous Row.
GAUGE: 24 sts = 4"; 11 rows = 4"
PANTS (60 grams for the 2nd size)
Begin by top part of front. Chain 78 (80-82) and work in dc. Work 4 rows even, then:
Shape crotch: at each edge, every Row, leave un-worked: 23 (24-25) sts (once); and 2 sts (4 times). Work 5 rows even on the remaining 16 sts then for back, at each edge, every Row, increase 1 st (once); 2 sts (18 times); and 2 (3-4) sts (once). Work even on the 94 (96-98) sts thus obtained for 4 rows. Break yarn and fasten off.
Finishing: Make a border at top of front and back of pants by working 4 rows of Fancy st, 1 Row of sc and 1 Row of picot. Make a border around each leg edge by working 2 rows of sc. On wrong side of work join sides with 1 Row of sc. Insert elastic thread at waist and leg edges.
BRA (30 grams for the 2nd size) Right cup: Chain 35, and work in dc, working 2 dc in the center st on each Row (8 times) -- 43 sts. At the same time at right edge, on Row 3, work 6 sc, 1 hdc, and work the other sts in dc, ending Row with 1 hdc and 1 sc.
Then work 5 rows leaving un-worked at each edge, on first Row: 6 sts, and beginning and ending each Row with 3 sc and 1 hdc to shape the cup. Then work 1 Row of dc on all the sts (even those left un-worked at beg of Row) thus on 43 sts. Continue in Fancy st leaving un-worked at each edge: 3 sts (once); then on each Row, 2 sts (9 times). Break yarn and fasten off. Work left cup same as right cup but reversing shaping.
Finishing: Work 10 sc at left edge of right cup. Continue in sc, leaving un-worked at right edge, on each Row: 1 st (8 times). Break yarn and fasten off. Work a border on left cup same as right cup but reversing shaping.
Work a border around top of each cup with 2 rows of sc and 1 Row of picot.
On wrong side of work join the two cups with 1 Row of sc. At lower edge of bra, work 2 rows of sc. Make two 10" cords for the back and two 16" cords for neck tie strings.
