can this pattern be change in a way to make a skirt. i have a picture in my mind of a skirt for a newborn but not the skill to work one out on my own. i've been tweaking patterns to no avail. :(
Kelly said…
HI Daisy, I would try this: on the row where you would join it, don't, and maybe work 2 dc in each stitch to get a little flare or try *1dc, 2dc in next st around* for less of a flare, then just dc around until it is as long as you like. Have fun!!

Let me start by saying I enjoy every minute of crocheting your patterns. I am making the baby shorts, and would like to make them in a shell stitch to match a dress....any suggestion? Do I just change the stitch or will I need to change the amount of stitches?

Saw the pink outfit where these are matched up with one of Kelly's sweaters. Really cute! However, how do the shorts/pants stay up? Do you put a string in the waist or what do you use?

Could you make this pattern 4 12 month olds? Any comments or tips for a 10 yr old trying to make this for her little cousin?

Love these shorts!

Like you, I also crochet for teen moms and moms in need..I donate baby sets to the local Pregnancy Center.

Thank you for posting your pattern/patterns.. I can so use them to make the boy sets!

These are really cute. Do you add elastic cord or drawstring to waist to keep them up ?
Thank you, Wilda

I don't usually add anything, but when I do I use a drawstring. Just crochet a chain of about 60 or so.
