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.
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.
Check out the other videos I filmed this week to complete this whole ensemble!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
