Crochet Tutorial: Baby Boy Knickers with Suspenders

As our “All Things Boy” week draws to a close, we end with a pair of Baby Boy Knickers with Suspenders. This tiny pair of pants are sure to bring out many ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ because they are just that cute!

Here they are paired with a little t-shirt onesie.

Knickers

These would look adorable with any pairing!

These are very versatile. You do not have to add the suspenders. You can add a drawstring. You can make these as big or as small as you’d like! I give information for larger sizes in the NOTES section, below.

Crochet Tutorial: Fine Dining Bow-tie Bib

Babies are notorious for making messes. Meal time can often be an experience between how much food is consumed versus how much food ends up all over the kitchen.

Today’s tutorial is this Fine Dining Bow-tie Bib. This week we launch a series of baby boy related crochet items. The introduction starts with this cute and very simple accessory.

Bibs make wonderful gifts, and although this has been designed with a boy in mind, a few modifications can transform this bib into a gender friendly piece for boys or girls. Be sure to protect those cute clothes underneath with this fashionable cover-up.

Follow instructions below for the video tutorial and written pattern.
