Junellie Set




To make the Junelille set (as seen above) you will need the June dress (leave out the skirt part) as well as the Ellie shorts. The pant legs are crocheted directly out from the opening of the shorts.

Yarn & hook:
For pants + top I used 471 g/ 1508 m
– For the legs (size medium/67 cm in length, 44 cm in circumference) I used 211 g/676 m.
– 3 mm hook
Cotton, size 1/superfine (50 g = 160 m).

Mesh stitch:
– The mesh stitch consists of 1 dc followed by 1 chain.
– Finish the round with 1 ss in the 2nd ch, ch 3 and turn (these counts as 1 dc + 1 ch).


The fit:
– You can make a gauge if you want to be sure that you have enough mesh stitches for the short circumference.
– If you find that the measurement of the mesh is smaller than the short opening simply stretch it or block it afterwards. The mesh stitches also have more stretch than the actual shorts.



Start by making your Ellie shorts but crochet through both loops instead of back loop. This will also mean that the shorts fit tighter than the original ones – if you want the original fit you can use back loop.

THE MESH LEGS:

Round 1: Now insert your hook with 1 ss in the the seam where front and back is connected.

Chain 3. They count as 1 double crochet + 1 chain.

Now you are going to make 1 double crochet + 1 chain per dc-row all the way around. Also crochet into every seam where from and back is connected.

You want to make sure you have enough stitches to match the opening of the shorts so the leg will be straight all the way down. Make more/less stitches in the first round as needed.

Finish with 1 slip stitch in the 2nd chain in the beginning of the round, chain 3 and turn.

Round 2: Make 1 dc in the first dc, ch 1, 1 dc in the next dc, ch 1. 1 ss in the 2nd chain in the beginning of the round, ch 3 and turn.

Round 3-xx. Repeat round 2 until you have the length you need. I have 62 rounds.

The edge: Make 4-5 cm (about 4 rows) with regular dc: 1 dc in the dc, 1 dc around the chain. Finish with 1 ss in the first dc, ch 1 and break off the yarn.

Make the other leg the same way and you’re done!




To make the Ellie pants with mesh legs follow along here.
The top is the June dress without skirt.

Measurements:
My legs (size medium) measures 44 cm in circumference, 67 cm in length (including edge).

Yarn & hook:
For shorts + pants I used 471 g/ 1508 m
– I used
– You’ll need 3 mm hook and about 4 balls/ 200 g of size 1/superfine cotton yarn (50 g = 160 m) for the legs (size medium).
– The mesh stitch consists of 1 dc followed by 1 chain.
– You can make a gauge if you want to be sure that you have enough mesh stitches for the short circumference.
– The 3 turning chains counts as 1 dc + 1 chain.
– If you find that the measurement of the mesh is smaller than the short opening simply stretch it or block it afterwards. The mesh stitches also have more stretch than the actual shorts.
