Baby Pants knitting pattern for 3 months old – So Woolly

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to knit pants or trousers for babies, step by step.

The pattern is written for 3-4 months age, it’s knitted flat, and if you know your knits and purls, you can do it!

We’ll knit the same piece twice, and then sew up the sides.

The baby pants are knitted from the top down, starting with a 2×2 rib edge, to form the waist band. Next, we split the legs, and finish one leg at a time.

So, no more words….it’s knitting time!
