Crochet Leggings with Pockets | Pattern & Tutorial DIY


for this project any category four
will work but I use 3/4 of a skein of lion brands pound of love in the color
Oxford grey as for tools a six and a half millimeter hook a five millimeter
hook scissors stitch markers tape measure and a tapestry needle there’s an
optional written pattern that can help out to link in the description if you’d
like to grab that and follow along we’re using four stitches for this project and
they will be as follows chain slip stitch single crochet and double crochet
this tutorial is for a size small but you can adjust it for your size and we
explain how to in the video so let’s get started getting these bottoms started
we’re first gonna grab our category for yarn make a slipknot
grab our five millimeter hook and start off by making a chain that comes out to
the size of the waistband that you guys want I want the height of my waistband
to be about an inch and a half or four centimeters and that is roughly six
chains once we have our chain what we’re gonna do from here is go in with a row
of double crochet so what we’re gonna do is start off by blocking off that last
chain that we just made do a chain up of three that counts as a double crochet
we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and then insert our hook into
that loop that we blocked off or the fourth loop from our hook with a double
crochet let’s do the next double crochet together prepare for a double crochet
into this next available loop that we have go in with a double crochet and
keep doing this all the way down your chain now that we’ve gone down with our
first row of double crochet we’re going to go down with more rows of double
crochet but going in through the back loops so to start up the next row we’re
gonna do a chain up of three flip our work prepare for a double crochet insert
our hook into that next loop making sure that we’re going in through that back
loop with a double crochet and we’re going to keep doing this all the way
down until we get to the end of this row once we get to the end of this row we’re
going to do another chain up of three and then go back down with back loop
double crochets and then we’re gonna keep doing this
until this becomes the link that we need for it to become so that it can fit
around the widest part of our hips and start to make our drawstring so this is what things should kind of be
looking like once we have our waistband all finished up I have a total of 58
rows or this in total comes out to 29 inches or 72 centimeters but keep in
mind that this does stretch quite a bit that’s why we’re using this stitch that
we’re using but once when we have this we’re actually just going to sandwich
the two ends that we have together and then go in with a row of outside loops
single crochets to close this off since our hook is still attached into
one end this part’s going to be fairly simple we’re just going to grab the
other end and also make sure that the waistband isn’t twisted well all we’re
going to do is insert our hook into this corner loop that we have right here once when it’s in there we’re going to
yarn over pull through everything and we’re now going to be going in with our
outside loop single crochets so all that is is for the front panel the one that’s
closest to us we’re going to be going in through the front loop and for the back
panel the one that’s furthest away from us we’re going to be going into that
back loop so that we can have just a little bit of ribbing along the front so
all that is is inserting our hook into that first available loop in the front
panel we’re going to insert our hook into that front loop and then into this
same loop that we have into the back panel we’re gonna go in through that
back loop just like that once on our hook is through both we’re going to
single crochet let’s do the next one together into this front panel go in
through the front loop into the back panel go in through the back loop single
crochet now we’re going to keep doing this all the way down now that we have
our row of outside loop single crochets out of the way the next thing we’re
going to do is just go along this bottom edge that we have with a row of single
crochets so it’s going to be fairly simple all we’re going to do is to a
chain up of one we’re going to open up our work and then also as you guys can
see we went into the outside loop so that we can have this a little bit of
ribbing along right here but that’s just for preference but to get back to the
single crochet row just into each of these side double crochets we’re going
to be going in with two single crochets so into this first side double crochet
gap I’m going to go in with one and two single crochets through the next one
together I’m gonna go in with one and two and as I guys can probably tell I am
hiding in my tail as I go but I didn’t mention anything because you guys may
not have ended on this side you guys may not have a tail where you guys are
working but if you want to you guys can it’s basically just holding down your
tail over your work so that it can be handed in through the single crochet
that we’re just doing but go ahead and put two single crochet into every loop
that we have going all the way down once we reach back to this first loop that we
made for ourselves we’re going to insert with a slip stitch okay so you’ve just made up all the way
around with our row of single crochet along the bottom and as you guys can see
I have also went in with some stitch markers and this is going to be for each
individual pant like that we’re going to have and these are going to be a little
bit higher waisted high-waisted pants on me so what I did was I counted all the
loops that I just made with our single crochet row and then I have inserted my
stitch markers right where the middle portion is and in this first chain that
we’re going to make is going to start right in the middle this is going to be
done up kind of the same way that we did the palazzo pants that we have on
channel palazzo pants with pockets check that out if you guys haven’t already but
we’re basically just going to work along the length and then work towards this
way until we get to this next stitch marker having one pant like done do the
same thing on the other side and then we will combine them from there but once
when we have all of that figured out what we’re gonna do is take out our five
millimeter hook and insert our six-and-a-half millimeter hook because
we want this to be a little bit thicker so that I can stretch and also come here
because this is gonna be kind of tight but once when we have that we’re gonna
once you try this on and put this where you want the waistband to be when you
actually wear it mine’s gonna be a little bit higher like I said so I
measured out the length of my leg and I’m going to make a chain that comes out
to 33 inches or 84 centimeters and that is around a hundred and ten chains so
I’m gonna make that chain amount right now but keep in mind that once when you
go in with our next row of slip stitches it will shrink up quite a bit so I would
say make your chain just a little bit longer than it needs to be and I
actually don’t have a way on how to gauge how much it’ll shrink cuz it
honestly just all depends so this may have to be a little trial in the air for
you guys I’m really sorry if it is but a tip that I do have for you guys is that
with your initial chain try to keep it as tight as possible because that will
eliminate the shrinkage that will happen but this next part is super easy like I
said we’re just gonna start off by making a chain of whatever amount we
need and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can start up our neck now that we have our chain that is the
length of our pant leg what we’re going to do from here is just go all the way
up with slip stitches so all we’re going to do is block off that last chain go in
with a chain up of one and then into that loop that we blocked off for the
second chain from our hook we’re gonna go in with a slip stitch and all that is
is inserting your hook I’m gonna yarn over pull through everything that’s on
the hook let’s do one more together insert into that next loop yarn over
pull through everything and we’re just gonna keep doing this all the way up our
chain until we get to the base and then we’re gonna slip stitch into the base
and keep going from there so I’ll meet you guys back once when this row is all
finished up we’ve just made our way all the way down with our first row of slip
stitches and we are back at the base and the next thing that we’re gonna have to
do is close off this row that we just did so how we do that is we’re going to
slip stitch into that next available loop but we want to make sure that we’re
working in the correct direction so all we’re gonna do is go in well I’ve
already marked mine off I’m not gonna be going into this way but in order to
close this off I’m going to insert my hook into that next available loop yarn
over pull through with a slip stitch and now this first row that we just did is
now closed off and then next in order to work away up to the next row we’re going
to insert our hook into the next available loop with a slip stitch flip
our work and then we’re going to be going in with more slip stitches but
this will be back loop slip stitches so into that first back loop we’re going to
insert our hook yarn over pull through everything into that next back loop yarn
over pull through everything and keep doing this all the way down and then
once and you guys reached the end of this row chain up one flip your work and
do more back loop slip stitches and then once when you guys get to the base go
ahead and connect into the base the same way that we just did so as a quick recap
once we work our way back we’re going to slip stitch into that next available
loop that we have in our piece just to close off that row and then in order to
work our way up to the next row slip stitch up the next available loop and
then go back down with back loop slip stitches
and we’re gonna keep going back and forth like that all the way until this
side of our pant leg is all finished up so we are back and we should have
something that looks a little bit like this so far and I have made my way from
one stitch marker this is where we started with our initial chain all the
way down to this next stitch marker that we have this is basically just one half
of our waistband that we just made for ourselves and so once when I get here I
just have one more loop to go into until I get to that stitch marker so into that
stitch marker loop I’m going to insert take that stitch marker out yarn over
pull through chain up one and cut and then once when we have this side down
we’re gonna do the same exact thing to this other side so super simple we’re
just going to start it off together we’re gonna take out this next stitch
marker and then into that loop at the stitch marker is in we’re going to
insert our hook grab our yarn make a slipknot insert that onto our hook and
then go off and then start off by making a chain that comes out to the same chain
link that we started with and then keep going back and forth with back loop slip
stitches all while connecting into the base until you reach this next stitch
marker and then I’ll meet you guys back okay so we are back we have just
finished up doing our second pant leg and we have actually finished something
the first one as well so we’re going to be speaking on this and for this next
part we’re gonna have to do some measuring and inserting our stitch
marker and these measurements are specifically tailored for meas so please
keep in mind that the number count and the measurements that I will be giving
you guys may not apply to everyone so you guys are definitely going to want to
try these on and measure these out for yourself
but like I said the first thing that we’re gonna have to do is actually try
these on and we’re gonna need to measure out two things and don’t worry I know
that when you try these on they’re gonna end up looking like some Gauchos but
they’ll be tights I promise so the first thing that we’re gonna need to measure
out is actually the bottom towards where the calf is so what I did was while I
was wearing it I know that it’s not connected but I kind of just pinched the
inside where the seam would be all the way up until it got a little bit tighter
not uncomfortably tight this is maybe about where my knee is but you know on
the side of my knee because this is the inside of your leg and then I inserted
my stitch marker there and then from there we’re going to want to put the
stitch marker in there because we’re gonna need to do a little I guess
increasing not technically but increasing so that it can come out a
little bit further for our thighs so just to let you guys know the
measurement that I have from the bottom of my pant leg to where I inserted my
stitch marker is ten and a half inches or 27 centimeters or roughly forty loops
remember this may not work for you and then the second thing that we’re gonna
need to do is figure out where our middle connector is going to be so
basically where the front connects to the back and I have a measured mine out
and from here down to where I have my stitch marker is about eight inches or
20 centimeters or roughly thirty loops so you guys are gonna have to figure
that out for yourselves but once when we have this one all figured out we’re just
gonna go in with a seam so just a row of single crochet going all the way up
making sure that our front panel and our back panel are intertwining together so
basically the same way that we connected our band but we’re just
gonna get this next part started off together really quick so just to start
these off what we’re going to do is insert our hook into this front panels
last loop the corner loop and then also into the back panels corner loop insert
our yarn onto our hook pull through a chain up one to secure and then once we
have that we’re going to single crochet going all the way up to our stitch
marker so let’s do the first one together into the next available loop
that we have into the front panel we’re going to insert our hook and then into
the next available loop that we have in the back panel we’re going to insert our
hook into that and then single crochet from there and we’re going to keep doing
this all the way down until we reach our
stitch marker once we do that we’re going to chain up one and cut and I’ll
meet you guys back so that we can do this funky-looking increase portion
together okay so we’re back and we have just seemed up I guess this bottom half
of our pant leg and what we’re gonna do is actually just I guess kind of dissect
it so just open it up like this just so we can take a look at it really really
quickly so the next thing that we’re gonna do is actually just go in with
more back loops slip stitches but we’re gonna be going in a V pattern and it’s
gonna keep going back and forth like this and this is to help expand this
outward as you guys can see right here this looks kind of nuts but help extend
this outward for our thigh because this is obviously significantly bigger than
our calves and it’s going to be fairly easy just all back loops slip stitches
once when we get to this corner our first one is going to be a decrease of
three work our way back up to this next portion that we have on the other side
that’s the same amount of loops that I have the stitch marker in here and on
here for some reason and then we’re gonna keep going back and
forth like that until this is big enough for you and mine is just about nine rows
keep in mind that this does stretch quite a bit but like I said this is
going to be different for everyone but if you guys need to keep going for
however many rows go for it this should all work out but I’m just going to
readjust my grip so that I can show you guys what we’re going to do so like I
said since we’re here we’re just going to insert our hook in through this back
loop kind of like if everything was normal like we didn’t have to cut inside
point we’re gonna insert it into this back loop and then go down until we have
just one loop left or right before our bottom seam right here so let’s just
start this off together really really quickly we’re gonna take out this stitch
marker insert still using our six-and-a-half millimeter hook insert
that guy into that back loop we’re going to pull through chain up one to secure
and then once we have that we’re going to go into that next back loop with
another back loop slip stitch so just yarn over pull through everything and
then we’re gonna keep doing that until we have just one loop right before our
seam and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can do that decrease together so
we are back and we have just gone all the way down with our rows of back loop
slip stitches and into this next available loop that we have into the
seam and then into the next loop that we have on the back panel we’re going to be
doing a decrease of three so all that is we’re still inserting our hook into that
back loop so into that next back loop we’re gonna insert yarn over pull
through we should have two loops on the hook from there we’re going to go into
this first seam loop that we have at the very end so this is gonna be facing a
different direction but that is okay it’ll all work out we’re gonna insert
our hook into that last seam loop yarn over pull three through three through
through should have three loops on hook and now we’re going to turn our work
just a little bit and then into that next back loop that we have we’re going
to insert if I can okay so it’s in yarn over and this is still a slip stitch so
we have just inserted our hook into that last loop and from here we’re just going
to yarn over pull through everything right away no more yarning over and
pulling through one so we’re just gonna yarn over and pull through one two three
four yarn over pull through four and that is our decrease that is to
eliminate any gap itch that we could have and once we have that continue
doing back loop slip stitches going back up our pant leg to our next stitch
marker once we get to the next stitch marker we’re actually going to do a
chain up of one for our work do more back loop slip stitches all the way down
until we get to about this second loop as you guys can see I’m
just gonna show you guys really quickly there’s a clear divider so this loop
that’s in the middle is on this side this loop that’s in the middle is on
this side so we’re gonna stop right about here so our third to last loop
because we’re going to be doing a decrease of two right here and then
we’re going to be doing a decrease of two right here and then slip stitching
up the rest so I’ll meet you guys back once when we get there so that we can do
that and then have at it from there so I’ve made our way all the way back to
our middle section as you guys can see I’m in my third to last loop right
before we meet the seam these are our last two loops on this side of our pant
leg so what we’re gonna do is just do a decrease of two so we’re gonna go into
this next back loop insert your an over pull through into this next back loop
yarn over pull through everything on our hook that is our first decrease and
we’re going to adjust our work just a little bit so that we can go into these
next two loops along the other side of our pant leg and into these first two
loops we are going to be doing another decrease of two so into this first
available loop we’re gonna yarn over pull through and then into this next
available back loop if we can there we go we should have three loops on our
hook we’re going to yarn over pull through all three and that is pretty
much it we’re just gonna keep doing this all the
way down and then I will meet you guys back once when we have the amount of
rows or length that we need like I said just on one side so I’m just gonna show
you guys just on this one side I will have a total of nine rows but you guys
can obviously keep extending or make it shorter whatever you guys need but when
you guys do put this on and make sure that it fits you make sure that you are
one extending this all the way because it’s does stretch quite a bit and then
also that you’re taking these two corners and then pinching them together
when you’d wear them just to make sure that everything is fitting nicely and
then you guys can make it as loose or as Baggies you guys want from there so I’m
just gonna keep going back and forth just like this until I have my nine and
I will meet you guys back so that we can do up the rest of this pan okey-dokey so I am back and I have my my
behind rows of back loop slip stitches while doing decreases into this bottom
corner and now I’m just going to connect it the same way that we have connected
pretty much everything else so far so we’re just gonna do the first one
together really quickly I’m actually just going to adjust my hook and grip
really quickly so it’s easier to go into but basically since we’re at a corner
we’re just gonna insert our hook insert our yarn onto our hook you guys don’t
have to do this part this is completely optional all dependent on where you guys
end up but we’re gonna go on with our seen but we just want to make sure
before we get started that we didn’t somehow someway flip our pants inside
out so that the seam is along the inside we just want all of our seams to be on
the same side but what we’re gonna do is pull through chain up one two secure and
into this next available loop that we have in the front panel and then into
the next available loop that we have in the back panel single crochet and we’re
gonna keep doing this all the way down until we don’t have any more loops left
and to go into and then we’re gonna cut and tie and then you guys because I
cheated and already finished my other leg you guys are gonna go ahead and do
your other leg and I will meet you guys back okay so we are back with our pants
we have pretty much everything sewn up and now we have a very inappropriate
hole and all we’re gonna do is just sew that up completely and by so I mean go
in with our seam with our single crochet seam that we always go in with and like
always you want to make sure that our seam will be facing the same direction
so as you guys can see this seam is facing out this seam is facing out so
now what we’re gonna do is take this portion and then we’re going to I guess
close them up together and then we’re gonna be going in this way with our seam
we’re gonna go all the way down to this point and then we’re going to go in with
the connectors and then work our way I’m doing a terrible job of showing you but
working our way around and we’re gonna come up the other way so this is all
gonna be one long single crochet so let’s get this started together so that
we can make it’s a little bit more wearable so we’re
ready to close up this hole that we have and what we’re going to do is actually
first go into this loop that we have in our band and our band should have these
two loops that have one pant leg started and then another pant leg started
they’re not available as we like to say or they’re not completely clear of
anything in there but that’s fine we’re just gonna insert our hook making sure
that we going through both of them anyways because we don’t want a gap
right in between the band and this connector that we’re gonna go into so I
just insert my hook into one side and then into the other or we can insert our
yarn onto our hook pull through could be a little tight chain up one to secure
and then from here we’re gonna go in with single crochets making sure that we
go in through the front panel and the back panel so what we’re going to do
really really quickly this is going to be outside loop single crochets and
we’re going along the outside loops because this is going all the way up and
around in between your legs so there’s gonna be a little seam there but we
don’t want it to be as noticeable so doing it this way we’re going to leave
just a little bit of ribbing for ourselves so into this first loop that
we have we’re gonna go into this front panel with a front loop inserting our
hook with a front loop so into the front panel we’re gonna insert our hook into
this loop that we have right here which is the loop that is closest to us just
like that and then also into this back panel we’re gonna be going in through
the back loop so we’re gonna insert and then from here single crochet we’re
going to do the next few together just to make sure that we have it this is the
next single crochet loop that we have so we’re going to insert our hook in
through the front loop that we have in the front panel and then into the next
loop that we have in the back panel we’re going to insert a hook into that
back loop if we can grab it into that back loop insert our hook and
single crochet we’re gonna do one more together into this next available loop
go into this front loop and then into this next available loop go into that
act loop geez why is this so hard and then from there we’re just gonna single
crochet then we’re gonna keep going all the way down with this pattern until we
get to this connector or where we finished doing our thighs this is where
the top of our thigh portion is and we’re just gonna be going in with
regular single crochet there’s obviously no loops for us to go into so we’re just
gonna have to eyeball that and then make our way all the way up and across the
other side I’ll meet you guys back just to show you guys what we’re doing so it
doesn’t get a little too confusing but I’ll meet you guys back once when we’ve
made our way all the way down these regular loops with single crochets okay
so we’re back and we just made it all the way down with our single crochet row
along one side this is the front or the back it’s both the same doesn’t matter
but in hell if we want to separate these guys you’re now at this middle chunk
which is where our thigh extension is whatever we want to call it so what
we’re gonna do from here is just sandwich these guys together and then go
into each of these I guess kind of loops with single crochets you guys are gonna
have to eyeball it for yourselves just make sure that you guys give yourself
enough space in order to make your way down here because if you I guess put the
single crochets too sparse then this won’t be able to stretch as much so what
I like to do is just separate it and then obviously when we count our slip
stitch rows this is 1 this is 2 this is 3 this is 4 so I like to find the row
here instead of single crochet here find one on top of the second row that we see
find one on top of the third fourth fifth that’s what I like to do you guys
can obviously adjust if you guys want to make it look something else whatever you
guys want to make it look like but I’m going to make my way all the way across
and then once we get over here we’re just going to pinch these sides together
and then work up with outside loops single crochets again until we don’t
have any more loops left to go into and then we’re going to cut and tie so we’ve just made our way all the way
around this middle portion that we have of our pants and we are ready to cut and
tie but we’re going to end this off the same way that we started this off so now
we’re going to take a look at where these two loops are where our two pant
loops me if we don’t connect it into those two loops we will have a cap
that’s just about this size and we don’t want that so what we’re gonna do we
could just insert our hook into those two loops the easiest way to do it is to
just well one figure out where they are which are these two loops right here we
can just sandwich them together insert our hook making sure that it’s going in
through both of the loops here’s one here’s two and then we’re going to
single crochet once we have that we’re going to chain up one and cut and then
next get your five millimeter hook ready because we will be working on the bottom
cuff so working on this bottom cuff is actually going to be fairly simple it’s
gonna be the same way that we do every cuff and also the same stitch that we
did for this one just with a five millimeter hook but right before we go
in with that we’re gonna need to go all the way around with a single crochet row
first just so that our cuff has something to hang on to so what I’m
gonna do is insert my hook into any one of these loops that’s somewhere near the
seam insert my yarn onto my hook pull through a chain up one to secure and
then once we have that we will be going in with one single crochet into every
kind of issue that we have but the tip that I have for this section is that we
do want this to be cinched in a little bit so just like how we did for the
connecting piece right here we’re not going to be going into every row that we
have I’m actually going to be skipping so the easiest way that I found how to
do this is to eyeball and see the ribbing that is facing us so obviously
this one’s facing us this one’s facing us this one’s facing us we’re going to
rip not rip but we’re going to spread those apart never we’re gonna be going
into these big loops that we have right in between those guys so I’m just going
to spread that insert single crochets to the next one together
to separate these two this is that loop single crochet and we’re just going to
keep doing this all the way around once we reach the end we are going to slip
stitch but we won’t have to cut and tie because we’re just gonna go straight in
with our cuff but to grab your 5 millimeter hook because we’re going to
be using that in the next clip so we are back with our single crochet row for the
cuff and we have slip stitched into that first that we made for ourselves and
like I said we’re going to be switching out our six-and-a-half millimeter or our
five millimeter and then once we have that we are going to need to figure out
how long we want our cuff to be and mine is going to be about 5 inches or 13
centimeters I want these to not quite be ma ankle just a little bit above it so
that’s going to come out to about 28 chains we now have our chain above 20
what we’re gonna do from here is block off that last chain to a chain above one
slip stitch into that second loop from our hook or the one that we blocked off
with our thumb and this is going to be exactly the same way that we have done
our body we’re just going to talk this through with each other really quickly
we’re going to do slip stitches all the way down once we get down to the base
we’re going to slip stitch into the next available loop to close off that rope
and then we’re going to slip stitch up the next loop flip our work and then
work back down with back loop slip stitches so 100% exactly the same as
this portion we’re gonna keep doing that all the way around until we don’t have
any more loops left to go into once when we have that we won’t get each other
back so that we can connect it all together we are back and we have just
finished up doing our like cuff and from here we just need to seam this up we’re
just gonna do the first one together since we’ve done this a bajillion times
you already know how to do it but once we get here we’re going to insert our
hook in through this first available loop that we have and just as a quick
note we are not going to be going in through the outside loops we’re just
going to be going in through both loops that we have when it comes to these
regular loops that we just made for ourselves so into this first available
loop we’re going to insert our hook into there and then into the next available
loop that we have and our back panel insert into there and
then single crochet and keep doing this all the way down once we reach the end
we are going to cut and tie and then you guys can go ahead and do your other cuff
on your other pant leg okay so we are back we have flipped everything
right-side out so as you guys can see the seams are all along the inside and
we tried it on everything is looking perfect and the last thing that we have
to do is optional but also not really optional because its pockets but what
we’re going to need to do is once when it’s on we’re going to need to do a bit
of measuring this is going to be 100% different for each person
but while it’s on you’re going to want to figure out where you want the pockets
to be along your thigh and I’ve already measured my now and the way that I did
it I just kind of eyeballed it at first and then once when I took it off sat
down that’s when I did all the counting but from this middle connector right
here I just kind of eyeballed it all the way across and then I inserted my first
stitch marker around the spot where I wanted my pocket to start and then I
also went down around the length of my pocket that I want it to be and both
sides are exactly the same so I’m just gonna be talking about one side for now
and then from there I did go around my thigh and then this entire portion will
be where my pocket is and this looks really small but remember that this does
stretch quite a bit while you’re wearing it and I want this to be able to fit my
phone and my phone is a little bit on the bigger side that’s why my pocket is
this dimension plus a little bit of my phone will be able to stick out as well
and that is what I wanted so I’ll give you guys my measurements and my numbers
but you guys can and we’ll probably have to adjust once when I give that to you
but the first thing I’m going to say is when I I balled this and then measured
all the way to where I wanted the corner of the top of my pocket to be once when
I was wearing it this was about eight inches or 20 centimeters or roughly 25
rows in and then once when I had my 25 rows I counted down about 21 loops and
that came out too of inches or 13 centimeters so that is
one side of my pocket and this was all on by the way but for the I guess rest
of my pocket I counted over 13 rows and then just inserted my stitch marker into
the same loops as the first two stitch markers that we inserted them into so I
went into the same loop over here counted down 21 and then into the same
loop over here and then if you guys want I counted from the first loop that I
have over here so right where the bottom band is as well and I went down about 30
loops and then this pocket size once when I was wearing it sorry I completely
forgot but this pocket size was about three and a half inches wide or nine
centimeters but once when we have all of those numbers known we’re also going to
do the other side the other side should be fairly easy it’s the same exact thing
as we have over here and then we can go in with our pocket so the first thing
that we’re going to do is see how many loops we have in between our top and our
bottom stitch markers and then we’re going to make a chain for that link so
this may be different for everyone but like I said I had a total of 21 loops so
I’m gonna go in with a total of 21 chains and then I’ll meet you guys back
we are back with our chain of the length of our top and our bottom stitch markers
once we have that we’re going to block off that last chain do a chain up of one
and we’re working with our six and a half millimeter hook by the way because
the body of our pant is with a six and a half millimeter hook but after we have
our chain up of one we’re going to insert our hook into that loop that we
blocked off or the second chain from our hook with a slip stitch and we’re going
to be slip stitching all the way down just putting one slip stitch into every
loop and then once we get to the end we’re gonna do a chain of a one and then
decrease because this pocket is gonna have a nice little decreasing detail to
it so I’ll meet you guys back once when we get to the end of this chain we have
our first row of slip stitches for our pocket and like I said we’re going to do
a chain up of one flip our work we’re gonna go into the next two back loops
that we have with a decrease so we’re going to insert our hook into that first
back loop yarn over pull through then into the next yarn over pull through
everything on the hook since this is a slip stitch and that is our decrease and
then from here we’re going to be working down the rest of our work that we have
with just back loop slip stitches once we reach the end we’re gonna do a chain
of a wonderful of our work and then when we’re working our way back up we will
not be decreasing again because we’re only going to be decreasing into every
other set so we’re going to work our way back up not doing any decreases so I’ll
just meet you guys back once we reach this end again just so I can remind you
guys and then we’ll move on from there so we are back with this row and I did
leave the last two loops just to show you guys that we will not be decreasing
in to them so what we’re gonna do is insert our hook into that back loop slip
stitch next back loop slip stitch and then from here we’re going to chain up
of one flip our work and then do more regular back loop slip stitches we will
not be doing a decrease just yet we’re going to work down with back loop slip
stitches once we get to the end to a chain up of one work our way back with
back loop slip stitches and then we will be doing a decrease so the rows are
going to be decrease one two three rows of regular back loops slip stitches no
decreases and then into that fourth row decrease and we’re doing it that way so
that our decrease doesn’t get too low because we do want this to be able to
hold things into the pocket so by doing that we’re maintaining the decrease in
keeping it just a little bit more shallow so we’re gonna keep doing that
until we have the same amount of rows that we have in between our stitch
markers like I said I have 13 so I will meet you guys back once we have that all
finished up okay so we’re back really quickly just so I can show you guys what
the decreases are looking like I know I don’t have my second decrease but we’re
going to do it together but just as a quick reminder this first row that we
have was regular back loops this ribbing row that we can see right here was our
decrease and then we have 1 2 3 rows of regular back loops slip stitches and now
we’re going to do our decrease so from here we’re gonna do a chain
above one flip my work and then into these first two back loops we’re going
to decrease so go into that next back loop yarn over pull through next back
loop yarn over pull through everything and that is our next decrease and now
that is it I’ll meet you guys back once we have the correct amount of rows so
that we can connect it to the pants together so we are back and we have the
perfect amount of rows for our pocket as you guys can see I have already done one
of mine we’re about to do this up together but no matter where you end
either on the top or on the bottom we’re going to be going in with a row of
single crochet along both so you guys don’t have to cut and tie you guys and
just continue on from wherever you’re at and then just do the same thing on the
other end but the one thing that we’re gonna have to do is make sure that we
have the same amount of single crochet loops as we have rows so I have 13 like
I said earlier and so we’re going to make sure that we end up with 13 loops
up on top and along the bottom and how we’re gonna do that is to a chain up of
one and then you guys know this first divot that we have right here that
counts as a loop so right above that there should be a little kind of loop up
here we’re gonna go into there with one and then into this row that’s facing us
the little rib that we have we’re going to find a loop there’s not really going
to be a good one for us to go to we just have to find one and commit and then
single crochet and then we’re going to keep doing this all the way down making
sure that we’re going in through all the necessary loops once we make it to the
end we are going to cut and tie and then do the same thing along at the bottom or
top wherever you guys are at and then from there cut and tie as well and then
we can sew in our pipe so we are back and we have our little pocket chunk this
looks nuts but it stretches trust me but what we’re going to do next is figure
out how we want our pocket to lay so since this does come in at a diagonal
you guys are going to want to figure out do you guys want the highest point
towards you or do you want the lowest point towards you that is completely up
to you the only tip that I have guys because I’m gonna leave you guys I
don’t have any real tips on how to so it didn’t the only tip that I do have for
you guys is start at the highest point doesn’t matter if it’s in the front or
in the back of the pant but we’re doing it this way so that we can go all the
way in with our tapestry needle going along the bottom we don’t need a cut and
tie and then come all the way up and then once we get up to this corner we
can just cut and tie so that we don’t need to account and do anything fancy so
the way that I did it is I believe this is the front yes I put in a stitch
marker so I know where the front is so how I did it was that I made sure that
the lowest point was facing outwards so facing out towards me as I walk towards
someone and then once when we have figured that out we’re just gonna go in
with our tapestry needle sewing it in making sure that we’re going in through
the same row and then in through the same loops along the bottom I’m sorry
that I don’t have any real tips for you guys I’m I’m just not a seller I’m not
good at this so we’re just gonna go in I’ll meet you guys back and then we’ll
go on from there so we are back and we have just finished up going in with both
of our pockets this looks really crazy but you’ll see in just a second how cute
this is on but the last thing that we have to do is just go in with a regular
chain to just make a drawstring that can go all the way around and fit around you
and also leave a little bit of a tail so that you can tie it in and then once
when you have that weave in all of your ends and then we are all done we’ve
woven in our ends and have just finished the cutest and warmest pair of leggings
there is plenty of trial and error when it came to how to do the thighs but it
turned out perfect I’m so happy with how these turned out and if you guys are to
