Did you know that knitted short shorts are the new shawl? These stylish suckers start with a wide hem followed by short row butt shaping and increases. Then, the legs are divided and worked back and forth as decreases form little side slits for optimum leg exposure. Finally, thighlight your thighs with a contrasting I-cord bind off and thread an I-cord drawstring through the waistband so your new short shorts don’t fall off when practicing your jump rope moves. You’re going to want a dozen more pairs of Sports in different colors as soon as you bind off!
