Here’s a lacy hipster panty and bra that are perfect for playing peek-a-boo. They’re made of stretchy cotton/elastic blend with laces, so even though they look pretty small, they are sure to fit you perfectly. Short rows help shape the bottom. I wanted to make mine in black or magenta, but when it came time to buy the yarn, I found my LYS only carried this pink! Now it has kind of grown on me. Try yours in whatever color tickles your fancy. Just relax while you are knitting with this yarn. Don’t try to knit it completely relaxed and don’t pull it so tight that you can’t get your needles through the stitches.
