Formulas to Customize

Chain 30 Loosely = 10”
Starting the panel off the strap:

Strap stitch count minus the panel stitch count divided by 2 = start point (You’re trying to find where to start your panel so you don’t have so sew them together. You may certainly decide to sew them together instead of using this step. Once you’ve completed your strap, you’ll take the strap stitch count and subtract the panel stitch count that you plan on starting. Divide that number by 2 and that final number is the number you want. That is the number of stitches you will skip to start the panel.)

Instructions – Tie Strap
Suggested Toddler or Child start for 40” tie – Chain 120
Suggested for Size Petite/Small, 60” tie – Chain 180
Add 30 Chains for every 10 inches you need to increase.
If you have a 50” waist and you want each side of the tie to be 20” long, follow the formula example below:
50” + [20” x 2 tie sides] = 90”
You will make a 90” long tie strap. Every 10 inches is 30 chains. See the formula below:
90” divided by 10” = 9 repeats. 9 repeats x 30 chains = 270 chains.
To start this pattern, you will chain 270.

NOTE: I am making the child size. Read all the notes and instruction throughout this entire pattern to figure out how many chains you need to start.

Using Hot Blue, chain 120 for 40” long tie (add 30 chains for every 10” increase in length.)
R1: Starting in the second chain from the hook, hdc in each chain across – total 119 hdc.
R2: Chain 1, turn, hdc in each stitch across – total 119 hdc.
For toddler or child, fasten off. Continue for a larger (teen or adult) size.
R3-4: Repeat R2, fasten off.
Continue to the front panel.

Instructions – Front Panel
Suggested 20” wide – panel is 60 stitches across
Suggested 30” wide – panel is 90 stitches across
NOTE: Formula for how many stitches to skip before joining yarn for the panel:
Strap stitch count minus panel stitch count divided by 2 = the number of stitches you will skip.
For example, I’m making the suggested toddler/child size – 40” long tie with 20” wide panel:
40” = 119 stitches
20” = 60 stitches
119 – 60 = 59
59 divided by 2 = 29.5
Round down and skip 29 stitches, then join your yarn. (If your “math-y ocd” gets the best of you because it isn’t an even number, add one extra chain to your start chain so you have an even number on both sides. I’m just going with the flow this time.)

Front Panel
R1: Skip 29, join Hot Green with a slip stitch, starting in the same stitch as the slip stitch, hdc in each of the next 60 stitches across – total 60 hdc.
R2-R8: Chain 1, turn, dc in each of the next 60 stitches across – total 60 dc.
R9-R15: Join Hot Pink with a slip stitch, chain 1, turn, dc in each of the next 60 stitches across – total 60 dc.
R16: Join Hot Blue with a slip stitch, chain 1, turn, dc in each of the next 60 stitches across – total 60 dc.
Fasten off, weave in your tails.

R1: Dc in the 2nd chain from the hook, 2 dc in each chain across – 20 dc total.
R2: Chain 1, turn, hdc in each chain across – 20 hdc total.
R3-8: Repeat R2.
Finishing: leaving a long tail for sewing, fasten off.
Finish little faces by sewing “v”s for eyes. Beaks start as a “v” and are filled in.
Ladybug spots: Using Black, chain 2, hdc 6 in the 2nd chain from the hook, slip stitch to form a loop/circle.

Using Hot Blue, chain 3
R1: Hdc 6 into the 3rd chain from the loop, slip stitch to form a circle.
