A trim pair of knit leggings are the perfect newborn photo prop. Paired with a matching hat, you’ve got the makings of an adorable set.
Any Worsted Weight yarn will do. I have used Cascade 220 and KnitPicks Wool of the Andes to make these leggings. You can knit the leggings in a solid color, or use a contrasting color for the ribbing at each end. It might be fun to add stripes as you go along.
This pattern is written for Newborn sized leggings. However, you could increase the needle size and overall length of the leggings in order to make them for larger babies.
The pattern calls for 100-150 yards of worsted weight yarn, but we used much less to make our leggings.
