Striped ruffled hem pant KNITTING PATTERN for babies and toddlers

These, soft, stretchy, and oh, so comfortable pants are for babies with attitude (or for those who aspire to have one)! Many knitters have asked me to start offering my patterns. Well, your wish has come true! Now you can knit your own Funky Baby pants using your stash of dk weight cotton or wool yarn and size 6 circular and double pointed needles.

Funky Baby ruffled hem pants are a wardrobe staple, generously sized to fit over diapers for sizes Newborn, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. The adorable knit "stem" draw cord with flower ends (at the waist) helps pants stay in place until the next diaper change (instructions also include an elastic waist option for those who prefer it). The pattern offers yarn requirements for both solid and striped versions of this multi-length pant, allowing you to make them as subtle or flamboyant as you like. Original and comprehensive directions include written pattern instructions supported with photo tutorials to help insure your success. Funky Baby striped ruffled hem pants are knit in-the-round, which means no irritating or bulky seams to rub your child's delicate skin. The gusseted crotch construction allows your child to wiggle, climb, scoot, and crawl in all directions. The samples were so comfortable, the models did not want to take them off!

Funky Baby striped ruffled hem pant knitting pattern instructions include finished garment measurements (imperial/inches and metric) and multiple length options for you to make short shorts/diaper cover, long shorts (mid thigh), capri, and full length pants. A plethora of options for looking adorable in any season!

Needles: size 6/4mm circular needles in 16” and 12” lengths & size 6/4mm double pointed
