Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast On, Short Rows, Picking Up Stitches, Increase, Cast Off

Pattern Description:

These longies (or shorties) are knit from the waistband down, and except for a bit of kitchener stitch to join the gusset between the legs, are seamless.

As they were originally designed to fit over cloth diapers, there are short rows knit across the bum in the wool version. However, if you would like your little one to wear these as regular pants or over disposable diapers, I've included instructions for a washable cotton version as well. This pattern is all about choices & variations.

Numerous style and finishing options are included, so dig in your stash & let's get knitting!


18 sts = 4" in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • NB/Small-4 years


  • For diaper covers: 200-400 yards of worsted weight wool yarn.
  • For cotton shorts/pants: 200-400 yards of cotton/cotton blend worsted weight yarn.

You Will Also Need:

  • 16" size 7 circular needle, 16" size 4 circular needle, set of 4 size 4 dpns
