That’s assuming that all are right-handed.

These are the basic old fashioned beginning of your next row/rounds. I’ve modernized or created stitches to replace them that worked more effectively & maintained the patterns more evenly for me. You will come across these in the patterns. These make it easier to keep straight edges & find the beginning of the row/round more easily too. They also help when you have chained spaces following directly after your turning/joining stitch. I also use the Foundation stitches which create the chain & stitch all at the same time.

Beginning Single Crochet (BegSC): Turn your work if you’re working in row format without making the chain 1, insert your hook directly into the stitch below your hook, draw up a loop, yo(yarn Over) draw through both loops. BegSC made. If you’re working in rounds, you will merely, insert your hook into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through both loops, & proceed to your next stitch. Looks just like all of your other sc’s within your pattern.

Beginning Half-Double Crochet (BegHDC): Turn your work if you’re working in row format without making the ch 2, insert your hook directly into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through both loops, ch 1, proceed to the next hdc. If working in rounds as you see you will not be making the ch 2 before proceeding you will yo, insert your hook directly into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through all loops, proceed to the next hdc. Thus creating hdc & appearing just like all other hdc’s within your pattern. Your next hdc will be made in a similar fashion, you will yo, insert your hook in spot indicated, draw up a loop, yo & draw through all loops on the hook. Equals 1 ½ sc stacked.

Material: #3 or #4 category yarn

Height to Slacks inseam length – Round up or down to the nearest 1” if you are ½”+ go up to the next 1” if you are less than ½” round off your fraction. Inseam Chart based on approximate height from 2’0” & beyond is dependant on combination of girth & height that is why I’ve tried to simplify the chart, but if you know your inseam use it. My chart is US sizing in Inches, for Length depending on girth aka weight.

Legs (Make 2): Dependent upon length vs. width measurements. Both measurements equal = Square shape, 1 larger than the other = Rectangle shape. The legs are worked length by width, Not width by length.

Don’t fret if you’ve always had to have a tailor or seamstress create or adjust for you because God created each of us individually, I’ve set up my charts so that we can create a perfect fit to our individual needs. Just find the lengths needed for your inseam based on your need & create legs that will work for you. Sorry I’m speculating on several of these sizes based on my research. I’ve designed them to fit for a few sizes at a time. Now once you’ve found your appropriate size in my graphs, you will now create your legs. (Example: The number of rows to achieve your legs width that you are attempting to fit. So a 12”l x 12” w square with a 5sc x 5row gauge will need to work 60 sc for 60 rows.) Now my gauge chart is set up for cm and inches and is rounded to the nearest row or stitch depending. Now let’s say you’re an adult with a 24” waist, you’re only 3’0” tall, if I’ve done my math correctly you will need xx-small with a 15.5” x 15.5” square x 2 = 1 for each leg. If I didn’t do my match correctly I’m sorry but this was my hypothesis, based on my research.

v Foundation Row: BegSC, sc # of stitches needed to achieve your needed length in your gauge. Please consult the linked charts for further assistance. Do NOT ch 1, just turn. As a reminder please see attached special stitches.

v Row 2 + beyond: Continue to work BegSC, followed by the #of stitches to create your needed length.

v Finishing Leg: Fold the square or Rectangle in half so that the beginning row meets the ending row, sl st through back loops only, this will provide slight additional easement if necessary. Once you’ve reached the other end, you will begin working around the leg opening with Sc stitches 1 per each row worked, fasten off & repeat for your 2nd leg. However, on the 2nd leg do not fasten off, we will begin joining our legs together & working them from crotch to waist.

Some of us have one leg longer or shorter depending on how you view the manner in which you were constructed & I’m right-handed so I’ve written my pattern to be worked as if we are all right-handed I know that we are not. So please adjust accordingly for you needs.

From Crotch to Waist chart – (depends on how your torso to leg ratio + your girth)

Average = evenly divided; our Almighty Lord created us individually, so find the best fit for you not based on your age group you can compare your height to the heights within the age groups to determine your best fit.

With our Preemies their sizes vary drastically from a super micro to just barely newborn in length. So their tiny little waist sizes & crotch measurements vary just as drastically.

Crotch to Waist: Joining the Legs to the Waist (I’ve written for right-handed as that is what I am. Make your adjustments accordingly. Just as if you have one leg longer or shorter than the other will determine which one you will start with.) The one & only seam will appear to the rear of us.

v Begin with appropriate leg to be on the right of your body in hand with the buttocks facing you, BegHDC, foundation hdc, insert hook into the same stitch & the seam stitch of the other leg & work a hdc this will be our crotch increase & joining of the two legs, hdc in the seam stitch, hdc in each stitch around that leg to the crotch stitches just formed, work evenly in the 2 stitches, hdc around the leg to the BegHDC, sl st to join. (# of stitches = to your waist/hip dimension + 4 crotch stitches. (Ex: 124hdc))

v BegSC, sc evenly around total # of stitches. SL st to join. (ex. = 124sc)

v BegSC, sc, (hdc2tog), sc evenly around to the other side of the crotch, work another (hdc2tog) sc around to the BegSC, SL st to join. (120sc,2hdc)

v BegHDC, (hdc2tog), hdc around to the remaining crotch stitches (hdc2tog), hdc to BegHDC, sl st to join. (120 hdc)

v BegSC, sc evenly around, sl st to join. (120 sc)

v Continue to work evenly until your desired distance from crotch to waist line is achieved. In the following sequence of rounds. Next round: HDC, Next 2 rounds: sc, next round: hdc, next round: sc; repeat these 5 rounds until your desired length is reached. To create our drawstring space, we will work 1 additional round alternating between sc & fptc will be worked around the stitch 2 rounds below, sl st to join & fasten off, hide ends. The draw string is created by ch 12, work 2 sc in each ch to beginning, ch a length + 10” for around your waist, ch 12, work 2 sc in each of the final stitches, than sl st back to the 1st curly q end. Fasten off & weave through the belt loops at the waist. (Ex: if you have a 24” waist you will make the curly q end, ch a length of ch 34” in length than add the last 12 ch to create your other curly q tip, and sl st back to your 1st curly q tip & fasten off.)
