Pattern Description:

Styled for both boys and girls, the easy wear and stylish look of the Runaround Pants will make them a favorite for running around at playtime and snuggling up at bedtime. Choose between boardshort length, capris and full-length pants, then add the optional side stripe, curved front pockets or, on the full-length pants, side cargo pockets. Raw edges on the side stripe, pockets and hem add a touch of playfulness and a modern finish.


The Runaround Pants pattern is part of the Jersey Love series by Fishsticks Designs. These patterns are designed specifically for stretch cotton/spandex or cotton/lycra jerseys. (Some Jersey Love patterns can also be used with other knits, so be sure to check the fabric recommendations.) Many of the edges are left raw to take advantage of the way that jerseys curl up after washing and drying.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12mth to 12 yr


  • Cotton or cotton blend jerseys are recommended for the best results. (Cotton or cotton blend interlocks will work for the legs and pockets, but they will not curl on the edges.)
  • Cotton/spandex or cotton/lycra jersey or rib knit for waistband (Cotton knits without spandex or lycra will not have the recovery to work properly in the waistband.)
