This crochet Summer Shorts or Beach Shorts looks so lacey and pretty, and it’s a little bit challenging for some of us to try. Here are some crochet diagram that we can try to make ourself, we can try some easy lace patterns to start, as long as we figure out how to crochet 2 parts of shorts, it would be easier to crochet shorts and pants.

Supplies you need:
- cotton yarn
- Crochet hook: 1.5mm
Written Pattern of the Chart by doug the wookie:
1. Single crochet the waist band until the chain is as long as your waist, you can crochet 5-6 rows *2 because you need to fold it over and sew it into a tube for the ribbon to tie your finished shorts. The broomstick stitch will be great on the waist band, too.
Crochet the circles:
R1: 12 DC in magic ring. join.
R2: Ch 3 dc in same (counts as 2). 2 in each around (24).
R3: ch 3, 2 dc in same stitch (cluster) **Ch 2, 3DC in next stitch** (Repeat around)
Join last cluster to ch3 (don’t chain 2 after)
R4:Ch 6, slst to ch2 space, **Ch 5 slst to space** last stitch is Ch2 & join to ch6.
R5: Ch 6, 5 DC in Chain space, ch 5, 5 dc in same ch Space,
**Ch 5 slst next sp 3 times, ch 5, 5 dc in next ch space, ch 5 sc in same ch space** repeat 5 times,
last stitch is Ch 5 slst next sp 3 times. join.

Then crochet the pineapple motifs:
R1:Chain 4 (counts as first double crochet).
R2:Work (1 double crochet, chain 2, 2 double crochet) all in the 4th chain from the hook.
R3:Chain 4 to turn (counts as first treble), work 6 trebles in the chain-2 space.
R4:Chain 4 to turn (counts as first treble), skip first treble, work (chain 1, treble) in each treble across, ending with the last treble worked in the top of the chain-4.Turn.
R5: Work (chain 3, single crochet) in the first chain-1 space, (chain 3, single crochet) in each chain-1 space across. Turn.
R6: Skip the first chain-3 space, work (chain 3, single crochet) in each chain-3 space across.Turn.
R7:Skip the first chain-3 space, work (chain 3, single crochet) in each chain-3 space across (you will have one less chain-3 space at the end of each row).
On following rows, continue to repeat step 7; eventually you will have a row with only one chain-3 in that row. Fasten off.
The crochet lace shorts is available on Etsy, made to order. You can get it here: crochet beach shorts. It’s challenging for us to start the diagram above, here is a video tutorial on crochet Summer Beach shorts with different pattern, but great to give it a try:
You can get the Pattern with pictures in Russian, it will help you out a lot on how to crochet the circiles and pineapples motifs together. (The crotch of it is circle, you can use pineapple motifs as illustrated above, too)
