Ok so maybe I took the granny stripes too far with this one LOL! But my husband is a great sport and is wearing these Crochet Granny Stripe Shorts well! I think he actually looks pretty darn great in them! At first we were kinda joking about them… just a funny little 4th of July wardrobe accessory… but now he is thinking of actually wearing these golfing! Haha! They fit really well!
You can actually make these smaller if you’d like! Adjust the length starting chain and reduce the amount of rows you crochet. It helps if you take a pair of shorts you (or the person you are making them for) typically wear as a way to measure while you crochet.
My husband is 6’4 and wears and XL- XXL. I would say these shorts are an mens XL. They should be fitted.
These shorts are constructed from two granny stripe squares. Very simple!
– Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Royal Blue, Cherry Red, and White (very patriotic! but you can crochet them in any colors you’d like).
Shop Red Heart Super Saver Yarn HERE on Yarnspirations.com
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Note: This is the same pattern as my Granny Stripe Blanket except I have a starting chain of 63. I have a video tutorial HERE for that blanket if you need more help/direction!
Granny Stripe Square (make 2)
starting with blue
Row 1: Make 3 DC in 6th chain from hook, skip two chains, 3 DC in next, skip two chains, 3 DC in next, repeat down chain making only 1 DC in the last chain, chain 3, turn
Row 2: 3 DC in first space from previous row, 3 DC in next space, repeat until you get to end, 3 DC in last space (this is your leftover chain 5 space from the beginning chain), then make a DC on top of the chain 3, chain 3, turn
Row 3: 3 DC in first chain space and the rest of the spaces in the row until you get to the end, make a DC in the chain 3 from the previous row, chain 3, turn
Change to white yarn
Row 4: 3 DC in first space, 3 DC in each of the spaces until end of row, make a DC on top of the chain 3 from previous row, chain 3, turn
Now that you get the hang of it, continue repeating the pattern for a total of 36 rows.
You will make 3 rows of granny stripes in each color:
3 rows blue
3 rows white
3 rows red
You will end on a red row.
weave in ends.
Each granny stripe square should measure approximately 20 x 20 inches.
Now you will turn the squares lengthwise (so the granny stripes are up and down) and fold each square in half. These are your two pant legs.
with a long strand of red or blue yarn (doesn’t matter) and your tapestry needle…
Starting at the bottom of the shorts, stitch up each pant leg together so each leg is a tube… stitch about halfway up… 9 inches or so.
and then you will stop stitching each pant leg and stitch the two square pieces together (the crotch area). You will do this on the front and the back side of the shorts.
Now add a waistband!
With blue yarn, SC around the top edge of your shorts. You should have about 75 single crochet stitches along the top edge.
Make 3 rounds of SC stitches
One round of DC stitches
Two more rounds of SC stitches.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
With white yarn, Chain 150. Fasten off
Weave chain in and out of the DC round of waistband for a drawstring tie!
I can’t get over how well my husband wears these HAHA!
Happy 4th of July!
It’s become a Daddy/Daughter thang! Little miss Zoe now has a pair of granny shorts and she got a case of the giggles when I was trying to snap a few pics of her and daddy 🙂 She loves matching with him!
For her shorts I used a starting chain of 60 and then followed the pattern as written above. End each leg of the shorts after 27 rows.
Finished measurements are about 14 inches wide by 9 inches tall. Zoe is 6 years old and wears a size 6/7 (size small) in girls clothing.

Fashion design matters a lot. Everyone wants to look cool but differences make some changes, so don’t follow others and make sure your comfortability.
I have a question!!! How would you go about lining these? I have a friend that wants them for swimming trunks
Lenka Hosakova says
I just want to ask : starting chain by husband is 63, and by daughter 60? I count 19 “grannys” in lenght your husband has. Your daughter has 9. What is the starting chain? 33?
Sarah Franzen says
I had the same question… I think 60 for the girl must be a typo?
I am struggling with the repeat sequence. I am newer to crotchet I even had a friend try to help me. Unfortunately for me I did not get the hang of the repeat sequence can you please help me? Do I repeat row 2,3,4 in that sequence or just 2&3? Thank you for assistance!

I’m not sure why mine is turning out much smaller than yours – I’ve already had to add 3 extra stripes and it’s still not big enough. My husband is 6’4” and looks the same weight as yours. What am I doing wrong? What’s your gauge? Do you crochet really loosely?
