Yarn: Patons Classic Merino Wool in Regency and Rich Red
Technique: Ultimate Sweater Machine in KP 2.5, Hand knit k2p2 ribbing with US 5, 3.75mm circular needle
Completed: January 2007
I’ve been trying to come up with a wool pants pattern for the USM since I first got my machine in 2004. Since then, I’ve attempted to design a pair of pants at least 3 times before I was able to come up with this latest version. I’m so close. Once I get the sizing down, I will be making great looking wool pants.
These pants feature a crotch gusset and short rows in the rear to accomodate cloth diapers. Joven will be offering
8 10 sizes: the Bulky in newborn, small, medium, large, and extra large and the Trim in the same size categories. The bulky sizes serve the needs of cloth diapering, while the trim serve the needs of people who EC or wear disposables.
