Simple Bikini Bottom

March 20, 2017



You can simply adjust this pattern by measuring your own panties and follow the steps: rows of decrease each side, rows of even dc, rows of increase each side.

~If you don’t understand any part of this pattern, please refer to the video tutorial~

Size
(XS/S, S/M, M/L, L/XL)

Yarn
Cotton/Acrylic/Blended fine baby/sport weight yarn. You can use any type of yarn you prefer. Approximately (50, 60, 70, 80)gram.

Hook
3.0 mm or any size needed to obtain gauge.

Gauge
A row of 7 dc  = 1.0” x 0.5” inch

Stitches used
Chain stitch (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc).

Abbreviation: 
Wrong side (WS), right side (RS), stitches (sts), space (sp), next (nxt), 2 double crochet together decrease/increase (2dctog, dec/inc).

Instructions:
First ch 3 counts as first dc.
Direction in parentheses are for (XS/S, S/M, M/L, L/XL).

Foundation chain: 
Make a slip knot and ch (48, 52, 56, 60).

Row 1(RS): 
2dctog (dec) in the 4th and 5th ch from hook, (40, 44, 48, 52) dc across, 2dctog (dec) in the nxt 2 sts, dc in last st, turn.

Row 2(WS) - (17, 18, 20, 21): 
Ch 3, 2dctog (dec) in nxt 2 sts, dc across in each sts across until 3 sts remain, 2dctog (dec) in nxt 2 sts, dc in last st, turn.

Now you have a total of (17, 18, 20, 21) rows of dec.

Stop decreasing the sts on each side and continue with even number of dc on nxt (5, 7, 7, 9) rows.

Row (18, 19, 21, 22) – (22, 25, 29, 32): 
Ch 3, dc in each sts across, turn. Total (12, 14, 14, 16) dc.

Continue to expand your work for the back part by adding 1 dc on each side.

Row (23, 26, 30, 33): 
Ch 3, 2 dc in nxt st, dc in each sts across until 2 sts remain, 2 dc in nxt st, dc in last st, turn.

Row (24, 27, 31, 34) - (45, 53, 59, 65): 
Repeat previous row.

 Now you have a total of (23, 28, 32, 35) rows of inc.

After the last row, do not cut off yarn.

Continue to make the 1st string.
Ch (100, 110, 120, 130), sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.

Continue with the edging.
*(Sc, ch 2, sc) in dc-space*, repeat *to* across.

Continue to make the 2nd string.
Ch (100, 110, 120, 130), sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.

Continue with the edging.
#Skip nxt st, (sc, ch 2, sc) in nxt st#. Repeat #to# across.

Continue with the 3rd string.
Ch (100, 110, 120, 130), sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.

Continue with the edging.
*(Sc, ch 2, sc) in dc-space*, repeat *to* across.

Continue to make the last string.
Ch (100, 110, 120, 130), sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.

Continue with the edging.
#Skip 1 st, (sc, ch 2, sc) in nxt st#. Repeat #to# across.

Finally, sl st in nxt st, ch 1. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Insert the string in dc-space.


And you’re done. Yippie J

  1. I am really struggling to make this pattern. I almost feel as if you have left out a step. I get down to row 17 and end up with 27 stitches, I don't know how you get it down to 12 dc when you start with an odd #. You have directions for row 2 ws, should there be a row 3 rs? Your video doesn't help either because you skip ahead after row two to where you finish the 17th row and are down to 12 dc. It doesn't help that you don't talk in the video either. Could you please give me some advice, I really like your pattern but after trying 3 times and asking a friend to help too I am about ready to pick a different pattern.
