Free Crochet Shorts Pattern

Crochet Shorts Free Pattern

Many of us think that crochet shorts are only for the beach, but why not wear them at the beginning of autumn :) Imagine how and where would you wear them! With this crochet shorts pattern you can easily make your own shorts really quick (it took me 2 evenings).

As for me, I’m going to make another pair of shorts for colder autumn weather – a little bit longer, but I’m not sure which color should I choose dark brown or black. Anyway, they will surely look good with a leather jacket, knee hight boots and tights. What do you think?
