You’re going to wish these comfy-cozy, baby leggings came in your size, but any wee-ones in your life will reap all the snuggly benefits of this loungewear. The pants are knit in one piece from the cuff up. The pocket is knit first and then knit into the pants, also with no seaming required. Extra room in the trunk for diapers is achieved with short row shaping. The elastic waist keeps everything in place for crawlers and walkers too. We used wonderful Koigu KPM, fingering weight yarn, and sweet Koigu mini skeins in 4 accent colours. The delicate, stripe details that decorate the ribbed cuffs and the pocket lining are really the delicious, defining details in this garment. Have fun picking the colours!

Level: Knitters must know how to knit in rounds on circular and double pointed needles. Short row shaping, decreases including “knit two together” and “ slip, slip, knits”, as well as “make one” increases are used in this pattern.
