A sweet loose knit for warmer weather, these bloomers are a quick gratification. Each leg is knit separately and then seamed. Colorwork is done using intarsia and is written for three colors, though additional colors could easily be added. Appendix includes a visualization of the patchwork leg, though it is written line by line. Elastic is encased in waistband.
