I know, I know. These photo’s are far from professional. They were taken well before I realized that I would actually (finally) create this blog. Excuses made, you may now proceed to the pattern without giggling too much at my low-budget photos.
Crochet Longies Pattern
I made this pair of longies out of acrylic yarn. To use them as longies (and not just trousers), however, you will need to use wool as it can be lanolized to act as a diaper cover for cloth nappies. It also breathes better and is flame resistant!
Here are the patterns and measurements from 0-3 months all the way through to 24-36 months.
If your child falls between these measurements or only one of them seems to be right for you, I would suggest going with the hips, because both the rise and the inseam are easy enough to alter yourself whereas the hips are a bit more tricky because of the increases for the gusset.
The following suggestions are based on the specified gauge, which is 18 rows and 17 st’s per 10cm square.
- To lengthen or shorten your RISE, add or remove one row for every centimetre. This will add or subtract roughly 5mm from the front AND the back, giving you approximately 1cm more or less in total.
- To lengthen or shorten the INSEAM, add or remove 2 rows for every centimetre.
- The same applies to the HIPS, where adding or subtracting 2 stitches will give you more or less a 1cm difference. This will give you 1 stitch more or less per leg as well.
