How to crochet shorts

Do you know how to crochet shorts? You might think it’s a bit challenging because it’s a garment we would wear. But things are not so complicated, believe us. Among the crochet shorts patterns for free, you’ll find beginner-friendly designs that require knowing only shell stitch or granny stitch. It will be easy to follow the well-written crochet shorts tutorial to finish your first project and be proud of yourself.

What kind of yarn is needed for crocheting shorts

Most shorts are made with 100% cotton or wool blend yarn, so they are very breathable and light. However, you can go for warmer wool and make longer long pants out of them for fall and winter time, and it’s better to choose a high-waisted crochet shorts pattern that is also free. Enjoy playing with the colors and really create a fun and unique project that can be your absolute favorite!
