Inspired by long johns my husband wore on our honeymoon as a joke, these unisex little pants are not only cute, but functional. Worked in 100% wool for wear over a cloth diaper, Little Johns will provide your wee one with warmth and comfort.

Worked seamlessly from the waistband down, in the round and then flat, they feature a twisted rib waistband, an I-cord drawstring, a backside flap with 2 large buttons + a smaller button, a gusset shaped with lifted increases, slightly tapered legs and a doubled cuff. There is 2” of positive ease for a comfortable fit that isn’t meant to be too loose. Little Johns also come with an optional striping sequence for the cuffs to mimic classic wool work socks.

“Little Johns are the perfect addition to any wee ones wardrobe!”*

7-page pattern includes schematics, photos, written instructions, 9 sizes.
