Newborn Baby Shorts / Pants

This is for a PATTERN to knit a newborn to 3 months baby shorts or trousers yourself

These pants are very versatile, and can be knitted up quickly in any double knit yarn. I love making them in soft mohair, but any double knit (8 ply/ worsted yarn is fine) You can knit one solid color or make the waist and cuffs a different color if you prefer. You can also knit them as shorts , or ¾ leg or full length. Pattern instructions for all lengths.

The outfit is meant for small Newborn -3 months old babies, and is great as a photo-prop. Team the pants with a favorite sweater for the perfect baby outfit for fall and winter.

Simple instructions, with lots of photos. Quick and easy.

The Pattern is in PDF format, available for immediate download I usually knit using a circular needle, as I find it faster, but I knit back and forth, not in the round, so you can use either circular needles or straight needles and do the same.
