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!
TREBLE CROCHETED BABY PANTS
Size: 0-3 Months
- Worsted Weight Yarn
- Crochet Hook Size I (as in “I” for ice cream)
- Darning Needle (for weaving in ends)
- 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
- BPDC = back-post double crochet
- *instructions* = repeat around
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,
