How about that, Pretty Little Girl Shorts!

Well I couldn't find a pattern for shorts so I just did one myself..not too bad.. I don't have my models here so I can't tell you how they fit until the weekend when I will be going to GA to visit the kids..but I thought they were cute..easy & quick to make too..take a looksy!

Ok, well here is the pattern.. its not perfected as I just wrote as I was going..Here we go..I also crochet loosely so you may want to adjust the pattern accordingly..if you want bigger shorts bigger hook..

Size H

Red Heart Soft Baby Yarn-I don't know how much just a small amount..

Ch 80,sl st in the first ch of beg be sure not to twist your work ( you'll be working in rounds never turning)

ROW 1: ch 2, ( working thru back loops) HDC around, join at top of ch2. (80 hdcs), ch2

ROW 2: working in rounds hdc around each st. join in top of ch2,(80 hdc) (work thru back loops)

ROW 3: (work thru both loops throughout rest of pattern) Ch 3, DC in each st around, join top of beg ch.

ROWS 4-14: Repeat ROW 3:(this is the body of the shorts so you can make them longer or shorter depending on your child's size)

ROW 15: Ch 3, DC in the next 40 sts. sl st in top of beg ch 3. this makes the leg hole..

ROW 16: Ch 3, Dc around joining in top of ch 3.

ROW 17-18: Repeat Row 16( if you would like your shorts a little longer this is where you just add a couple more rows)

LEG EDGING: Ch1,sc in first st, sk next st, 5 dc in next st, sk next st, sc in next st, sk, next st, 5 dc in next st continue around and sl st in first sc to join. (10 shells ) fasten off and weave ends in..

SECOND LEG: Join yarn with sl st in the crotch area. Ch 3 and dc around each st. (40 dc)join in top of beg ch 3.

REPEAT ROWS 16-18 of the other leg and do edging..

Crotch area: I just sewed a few sts there to pull it tighter so there wasn't a little whole there..(I'll work on that)

OK now I just ch 125(or however long you want your ties) sl st back thru and wove the tie in every 2 stitches..

I think that's it! Well I have not tested this pattern I just wrote as I went.. so if ya'll find a problem or get confused let me know please I can help you out or change the pattern accordingly! Happy Crocheting! I will have pics this weekend of all the items I have made for my grandaughters as I am going to visit them in GA this weekend!! I can't wait to see eveyrthing on them..SSOOOO EXCITED!!

I am now making a top to go with the shorts and will post it today when I finish! Then its on to CAPRIS pants!!! I'm so inspired lately! LOL Wish me luck!

    Hi, Can yu please tell me what size this pattern is for? I would love to make a pair of these for my 2 year old niece, but 80 stitches sounds a little wide in the waist...although since she is still wearing diapers, I could be wrong.

    I did a test swatch for this using an acrylic yarn and a H hook. I tend to have a relaxed crochet stitch, so keep that in mind.

    I got 7DCs=2". So, 80 stitches would make a size 4/5 (22") waist.
