or, as ben calls them, pantaloons. i, myself, prefer the term bloomers. also, the first three knits i’ve intentionally made for the impending. all of these are variations on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s baby leggings pattern. easy peasy and easy to memorize, which is exactly what i need when i’m dyeing wool.
first up, a full size pair. i made minor changes to all of these. these have 49 stitch legs instead of continuing to shape. lots of different kinds of wool in these ones! i also left off the holes for the tie and made the ribbing longer. rav link.
second i made these out of rainbow chard scraps. they’re a bit bigger due to the aran weight yarn. hopefully the babe won’t decide to potty train itself at bit more than one year old like i did! then again, hopefully it will? anyhow, i’m going to use them as a sample of rainbow chard for the yarn shows coming up. rav link.
so fun! the real question is will the babe have more pants than sweaters when all is said and done? we’ll see.
