Treble Crocheted Baby Pants [S.O.P. Series]

To start off my Summer of Patterns Series, I wanted to share a fun pair of baby pants.  This was my first try at making little pants, and I had a blast figuring them out.  (Okay, so maybe it wasn’t as blastastic when I had to pull out rows and re-work things, but then it got super blast-y once I knew what I was doing!)  Without further ado, I give you the Treble Crocheted Baby Pants!

Abbreviations

  • r = row
  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sk = skip stitch
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • tc = treble crochet
  • FPDC = front-post double crochet

Directions – Pants

R1: ch 56, sl st to first ch to join, hdc’s around, sl st to join (56)

R2: ch 3, *FPDC, BPDC*, sl st to first st to join.

R3: ch 3, *2tc in first, sk next* sl st to first st to join.

R4 – R 11: ch 3, *2tc into “v” from previous row made by the tc’s, sk1*, sl st to first st to join.

R12: [2tc in “v” from previous round, sk next] repeat this sequence thirteen times, 2tc in next, [dc2tog using the next st and the first st of the round (containing ch 3), then sl st to first tc of round. This will start one pant leg.

R13 – R20: ch 3, *2tc into “v” from previous row, sk next* sl st to first st to join (28).

Re-attach yarn near the start point of Row 11 and repeat R12-R20 to make second pant leg. Finish off and weave in ends.

Directions – Drawstring

One option is to use a ribbon, or three strands of yarn to braid a long drawstring. Another option (which is pictured with the pants) is to ch 130 – 150 and sc across beginning in the 2nd ch from hook. Finish off and weave in ends.

For those of you following along with the Summer of Patterns Series, this will be my “new-to-me” theme.  (You can read more about the themes here).  Never before have I done anything with pants or that made me separate off different portions for legs, so this turned out pretty awesome!

 

Still a newbie sometimes,

    THIS ARE NICE. THE FIRST 2 BABY PANTS I MADE WAS WHEN I HAD JUST LEARNED HOW TO START A RAGLAN BABY SWEATER. AND THOSE PANTS WITHOUT PATTERN OR ANY IDEA ON HOW TO MAKE THEM WERE EASIER THAN OTHERS I TRIED TO MAKE LATER. SPECIALLY THE SEPARATION OF THE LEGS. THEN I FIGURED HOW TO MAKE SHORTS, PANTIES FOR BABIES AND EVEN JUMPSUITS, ETC.

    Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. Giving them a try right now. I have a feeling these will be my ” go to” for baby pants!!

      Hi Terina! When you follow the pattern of two treble stitches in one stitch, and then skipping the following stitch, this creates a “V” look in the work. When you move to the next round, you will then repeat that same series of stitches (two trebles in one, then skip the next), but place the stitches in the “V” created by the previous round instead of across the stitches like you normally would. I don’t know if that helps?
