Free Pattern: Toddler Longies

Toddler Longies Knitting Pattern

These are the cutest little pants, they can be used as a diaper cover or for cozy warmth on a chilly winter day. These will fit a child about 2 years old but can be easily altered.

Yarn used: 100% Acrylic yarn

Needle Size: Circular and double pointed needles US size 8

Gauge: 17s = 4”

Cast on 80 stitches to circular needles

Knit one inch

On the next round you will be creating the holes for the drawstring:

K36, K2 tog, YO, K4, K2 tog, YO, K36

Knit till length is 8” long or until desired length is reached.

Cast off 5 stitches in the front middle and back middle.

Knit each leg 7” with your double pointed needles or desired length.

You can change to an alternative colour for the leg cuffs if you would like and knit about 1 ½” to 2” more.

Bind off.

Knit an I-cord for the drawstring and you are done!

Sew in between the legs together and sew in all loose ends.

Note: You will need to fold the waistband inside about 2” and sew inside to hide the drawstring. This is easily done if you place your drawstring inside first then fold waistband inside to sew, be careful not to sew drawstring too! J
