Octagon pants crochet pattern

Pants crochet pattern free

Pants crochet patternThese two versions of Octagon Pants are worked from the center outward in one piece using your choice of stitch pattern: back loop single crochet or double crochet with openwork. The fabric will almost magically fold itself into a pair of pants. The waistband and cuffs on the yellow sample are knitted, but you can substitute the crocheted waistband on the Blue Pants if you like.
