Free Pattern for Baby Leggings

BabyLegs are all the rave with new moms, and they’re awfully darned cute, so when my niece asked me if I could crochet a version for her daughter, Olivia, I was delighted!

I worked and reworked the pattern, and eventually came up with "Livie Legs".

These are a fairly simple crochet pattern, and I think one that would be great for Marine Corps Kids donations. You can find my pattern here or through the link in the pattern section of the Marine Corps Kids Blog.





If you don't crochet, but like the idea of hand-made baby leggings, there is a very simple tutorial on the web that shows how to sew them using a pair of ladies sized knee-socks.

Here are two pairs that I made using the method described in the tutorial.


These literally took less than 15 minutes to make, and cost less than $3 each. The tutorial can be found here or through the link in our pattern section.

Cannot find tutorial. When I click on the link it takes me to a Kodak site with no mention of a tutorial. Please help as my tiny grand daughter really needs some of these leggings to keep her itty bitty legs warm!

Oops - guess the owner took that tutorial down. There are many on the internet. You can google "make your own baby legs".

One set of instructions can be found here:

Good luck!
