These crochet pants have been a LONG time in the making. Most of that time was spent too intimidated to even try making them.

My husband challenged me a long time ago to make crochet pants, and even drew several designs for me. Well, I finally did it and I’m so happy that I did.

If you’ve ever wanted to crochet a pair of pants, but were also too intimidated, you’re at the right place! Give these and try and let me know it how it goes.

Don’t forget to share your work with me on social media, I’m curious how many people are going to give these a try.

If you’d like to own this pattern, it’s available for purchase in printable PDF format. Just check out my Etsy, Raverly or Lovecrafts stores.

Happy crocheting!

Drawstring

For the drawstring, I’m using 2 strands of yarn and crocheting them together. Then make the ch until you have around 50-80″, long enough to wrap around your waist and tie the drawstrings.

To add the drawstring, work it through the waistband in and out, making sure its even top to bottom and lines up with the inseam.

Congratulations, you did it! I’d love to see everyone’s work. If you want to share with me, just tag me on FB or IG. Happy crocheting:)
