Item details

Knitted pants are, for whatever reason, not really A Thing. I don’t know why not; they’re no scarier to make than a raglan sleeved pullover, they’re lovely and warm, and the patterning possibilities are endless! These pants are written for calf length lounge pants, but if the mood strikes you, make shorts, Bermuda shorts, or full-length pants. Use all of the colors or pare down the chart to just two colors. Skip the color work entirely and just make plain pants! So many possibilities!
