Craft Passion shares a free pattern and tutorial for making a pair of knit shorts for toddlers. It works for either a boy or a girl. She made her soft knit shorts from an old polo shirt. The pattern is sized to fit a 3-year-old child. If you need the shorts in a different size, you could adjust her pattern or use your own pattern while following her instructions. Get the tutorial.
