Knit Baby Pants

Don't you just wish there was a wee little babe wearing these that you could scoop up and cuddle in your arms?? Well I sure do. I can't wait for all my pregnant friends to start delivering their babies so I can have some models for these baby knit blog posts. I can't wait to see little tiny toes poking out of the cuffs of these pants! 
I used a pattern from "Vintage Knits for Modern Babies" (great book by the way, I think I might bite the bullet and just buy it) by Hadley Fierlinger. I ran out of yarn which resulted in a few stripes near the waist which I actually really like. I didn't however think about how that also meant I'd need to sew the seams together with a different yarn. Not so fond of that look but I suppose it's not terribly noticeable. I sewed some elastic around the waist to help keep them up as the pattern suggested. I think next time I might try decreasing as I near the waist to see if I could get away without the elastic.

  1. You could add little button-on suspenders--adjustable--in lieu of the "waist" elastic. Last time I checked, babies didn't have waists!---Deborah

  2. that sounds like a fantastic idea! will do!

  3. How did I miss this post? They are adorable in these pictures and (if possible) even cuter in real life. I love seeing all of your knit baby things together, amazing!
