Who knew a pair of knitted shorts could be so comfortable and flattering? One of the shaping techniques I like most in Knitting from the Top is Walker’s instruction to shape the crotch before working the legs. Much like the eye-shaped insert found in yoga pants, her crotch shaping largely eliminates unflattering bunching and helps ensure a smooth fit (one you almost have to try to believe)–all seamless and without a bit of sewing.
