“I have some ideas for crochet cotton shorts, which I was going to use a lighter weight cotton, but thought, “hey, I’m going to try these in the worsted weight.” Normally I would have used a different color, I’m not real fan of this color blend, but I AM pretty happy with the design itself. It’s very easy and it works up quick. “

There’s also so many ways to customize these shorts! You can easily make them shorter or longer, use multiple colors, stripes, add pockets or leave them without, or add even more pockets… it’s up to you! I can’t wait to see your projects.
