G Squared Shorts -free crochet pattern-

If you can make a granny square, then you can make these shorts!  Actually, I’ve written out the granny square instructions to help you out, if you’re new to this popular, highly used, and awesome square motif! 

If you already know how to make a granny square, then you can just follow the color changes up until the last row.  The last row of each square is altered to add the “gusset” or crotch in the same fashion as denim shorts.  From here, the motifs are sewn together to form the shorts.  They will look big at this point, so here’s where the waist is shaped in 3 simple rows. 

You may add a drawstring if you wish, or go really crazy and continue on to full length pants.  (My next project!)

I chose navy, grey, and white worsted weight yarns, mainly because I had them in my stash already!  So get creative and use whatever colors you want.  These would look pretty nice in one solid color as well.

*Note, your MAIN Color (the one that you want to use the most of) should be the last color used in each granny square.  Adjust color changes accordingly, because for each size, there are different amount of rows and color)

- Line up center (unsewn side) of legs toward each other (right sides facing out).  Using a long strand of your main color (Navy), sew evenly together, from the top of the fronts, down around the gusset (crotch) and up towards the top of the back.  Fasten off. Sew in ends.

  1. So cool!! I love it. What sizes are the squares?

    1. The gauge would be a granny square up to Rnd3 = 4 inches.

      So (front) finished squares up to the last rnd are XL=11.5", L=10.5", M=9.5", S=8.5", XS=7.25".

      These sizes can be approximate, as they will be very stretchy:)

  4. I can't say thank you enough for sharing this pattern. My oldest daughter loves the granny square pattern and has wanted me to make shorts for her. I can't wait to surprise her with a pair. I hope to start them in the next day or so. Again thank you!

  5. Just to clarify - there is no ch 2 in between the shells along the sides?

  6. Okay, I have to ask this...under duress. lol. If I'm going to make these for a guy, how would you suggest editing the pattern? Maybe add length by adding two more squares in the front and back on the bottom and whip stitching them together?

    1. I haven't made these for any men yet, however some people have over at Ravelry! Check out the projects, maybe send a message to one of the crocheters who did, and see what they say. Here's an example of a pair made for a male :) http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ceeseven/g-squared-shorts
