Ugly Ugly Crochet Shorts

Last month a friend of mine posted a link to these ugly lovely shorts on Facebook and tagged myself and Maddy from the Naked Dyke. Just look at them …

Ugly Ugly Crochet Shorts her birthday was not far off, I took this as a hint that she wanted a pair of these funky shorts to celebrate …

She was not so excited about this prospect, but we were! Maddy and I sat down and started crocheting granny squares in all manner of colours. No stash yarn was safe. Bonus points were awarded if the colours looked hideous together. We sewed them together with a simple whip stitch in a vaguely short like way – there’s a tie cord waist and there are even two legs!

A few weeks back I shared a teaser of these shorts with you in my Sunday Sevens.

And the worst part? I actually quite like them … they have a certain ugly duckling charm about them. Happy Birthday Nat!
