Crochet One-Skein Wonders® for Babies: 101 Projects for Infants & Toddlers (Storey, 2016) edited by Judith Durant and Edie Eckman is bursting with crochet projects that require no more than one skein of yarn. These adorable projects range from stuffed animals and mittens to clothes and bibs. These handmade baby items are sure to become family heirlooms! This excerpt comes from chapter four, "Little Bottoms."

Keep baby snug but mobile in these tie-at-the-waist pants. Work the two legs separately in the round, work a few rows back and forth on each, then join the legs together in the round to finish the seat to the waist. If you have enough yarn left over, work an I-cord for the top; if not, use a shoelace or ribbon.

What You'll Need:

Size and Finished Measurements: To fit 6–12 months: 20"/51 cm waist, 71/2"/19 cm inseam, and 12"/30.5 cm front-to-back through crotch

Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, 100% superwash merino wool, 420 yds (384 m)/3.5 oz (100 g), Spectrum

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
