Origami Kimono and Bloomers (Bloomers)
Knit bloomers in matching or contrasting colors to coordinate with the Origami Kimono. In addition to functioning as a fashionable cover-up over diapers, this pattern can also be used to make woolen soakers.
Each short leg is worked flat and started separaely, then joined to work in the round. For pants to fit well, the front must be lower than the back. After working 1-½” of ribbing, cease knitting in the round so that you can gradually decrease stitches from each side of the waist to make the back part of the waistband higher than the front part. *
