Join us for a Pants Knit Along over in the Andrea Rangel Knits Ravelry group!

These cute shorts are worked seamlessly from the bottom up. Each leg is worked separately & then joined, much like a seamless sweater, with crotch stitches held for later grafting. The seat is shaped with short rows for a better fit, and an i-cord draw string cinches the waist. They are meant to be worn with little or no ease, so choose the size that fits or is a bit smaller than your hip size.
