A Colourful Cowgirl in Calgary
It took a while and a couple of tries to make this come out as it did.
Legs: Make 2 but do not break off after the 2nd one.
Chain 30, join and dc around
: dc around decreasing by 2 on each round but vary where you decrease each time. (each leg should have 24 sts by now)
Align the two legs and work sc over 8 stitches to form crotch. Then work dc around the two legs be sure to work a dc into the sc join just to avoid a hole in that area.
you should be at the Centre back. If not, break off and attach yarn 1 stitch before centre back stitch
If yes, ch1 and turn . work one slip st into next st ch1 turn
Work 3 sc in 3 sts. Turn
*Work: dc, 2dc, dc into the 3 sc, turn. (4dc)
Work : dc, 2dc, 2dc, dc into the 4 dc, turn (6 dc)
Work: dc into first 3 dc ch 2 turn,
Work dc into 3rd dc and chain 20. join in 7th ch from hook to form buttonhole.*
Repeat for the remaining 3 dc from strap base,
Sew on buttons at CF.
I have no idea how to make Velcro work for this one
You might be able to sc around an elastic waistband
see what works for yall
White short sleeved top
Remember your closure and allow for that. I worked a tight ch 5 loop on the Right Back on 3 rows.
Chain 27 work dc in 3rd chain from hook then work (dc, 2dc) across (38 dc?)
dc in 5, ch1, dc in 9, ch 1, dc in 10, ch 1, dc in 9, ch1, dc in 5.
dc in dc and V-st in ch1 spaces
: dc in dc, V-st in V-st.
: dc in each st up to (incl) ch1 of V-st. ch 4 then work dc in next V-st space. Double crochet to next sleeve and work as first end with dc across back.
dc in every dc and chain st. break off.
Finish as needed (buttons, Velcro?)
Ch 37 and work 36 hdc across.
Work a row of Dc across then divide and mark into fronts, sleeves and back.
Fronts 6 st ea.
Armholes 4 st ea.
Back 16 st
Work fronts in 6 rows of DC reducing to 3 sts for shoulders.
Work the back in 6 rows of DC (reduce a few sts) and work 3 sts for each shoulder. Leave long tails for joining.
Sew shoulder seams.
With black work sole need those pointed toes for this to work
Chain 7 and sc around working 4 sc in toe end and only 3 sc in heel (starting) end.
Work the second row with sc in the heel end but hdc for the rest being sure you work 2 hdc in the two forward toe stitches. Break off black.
While working the uppers, you want a trim boot so decrease along sides if needed.
Uppers row 1
: Join Tan coloured yarn in heel area and work FPhdc around sole area, join
Work hdc around but work hdc decrease in the stitches on either side of the 2 forward toe stitches
hdc around but work decrease over the 2 forward toe stitches.
Work scalloped tops equally around top using sl st, sc, hdc and dc (2dc) as needed to form boot tops.
I should be paying someone to have this much fun
Work these stitches tightly and use a small(er) hook to get a stiffer fabric. (I used a 4.5mm for this)
Ch 6 and work around chain doing 2 sc then hdc (5hdc in end st)around and back to last 2 for sc. Join
Join after each round
Work 4 rows
of SC around increasing at ends only as needed to keep flat.
Work 8 rows
of SC even (no increase) to form the sides,
Work : FPsc, 2 FPsc around and join
Work 3 rows
of hdc around increasing only if absolutely necessary. On the last row, work 2 hdc in front stitch to form slight point.
Get 2 long strands of black (or what colour you choose) and a smaller 2-hole button.
Put the two strands of yarn through the holes on the button then attach the ends to the inside of the hat crown. Find the centre point of the yarn and tie a simple knot just to keep the lanyard centred when worn. Slide the button up under the chin to keep the hat on the head.
(With Tan colour) Work a very long chain pulling each stitch tightly as you go.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.
However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money.
I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.
Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work.
You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.
