Shorts are knit top down in the round. The pattern is a size small/medium and fits at 38” hip a little loosely. You could easily just cast on a few more stitches to make a larger size (multiply you additional hip inches by 6 and you will get the number of extra stitches to cast on).

You will need:
-Size US 2 needles with a 24” cord
-2 red st. markers
-2 yellow st. markers (or whatever color but you should have 2 colors)

I used the following yards:
2 skeins Jade Sapphire 4 ply (this yarn is $$ but I had it left over. You could replace this with anything similar in weight)
20g Narwhal Needlework Rogue in “Nymph”
12g (small skein) Koigu KPM 2220
12g (small skein) Koigu KPM 0000
12g (small skein) Koigu KPM 1521G
12g (small skein) Purl Soho Line Weight dark green
12g (small skein) Madeline Tosh Merino Light “Radio City Music Hall”

I do my best to check all of my patterns for correctness but I do not currently work with a tech editor. If you happen to find a problem in the pattern please email me so that I can correct it.
