Little Leggings, Frogginette. Print Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern.
These adorable baby leggings are designed to be gender-neutral and practical, and the worsted weight yarn it calls for makes it a very quick knit.
Perfect for those last minute baby shower gifts or for a quick project when you are in the mood for instant gratification :)
This design really makes beautiful yarn sing. Use solids for an elegant, understated look, or use semi-solids or variegated yarns for a more playful effect.
These leggings are knit seamlessly from the waist to ankle, featuring an easy textured stitch detail along each side and on the cuffs. A ribbed waistband with an I-cord tie ensures a secure fit around the waist. Short rows worked in the seat area as well as a generous gusset at the crotch (requiring a small amount of grafting) help accommodate even bulky diapers. Some negative ease is built-in for a close-fitting look, so it’s best to use yarn that has some stretch to it.
Why not make a matching set with the Little Vest?
