Cute & Versatile Pattern!

For a daiper cover, stop after the first leg row. For shorts make the legs 3 or 4 rows, for capris make the legs 5 or 6 rows long.

You could add suspenders, or a front bib and suspenders for overalls.
You could add butt ruffles or sew on butt pockets.
Oh, how about a little old fashioned “trap door” on the butt!

These would be really cute for a girl if you leave off the last three leg rows and add a scalloped edge instead.

You could make bell-bottoms be increaseing in the inner and outer “seam” area of the bottom of the legs.

The choices are endless! Have fun!!!
