What could possibly be cuter than knit ruffles peeking out from underneath a little dress or tunic? Or photos of a newborn wearing giant ruffles across the rear? These tights were designed and named for my spunky niece Charby (Charlotte).

They are seamlessly constructed from the top down and are held up by negative ease. The pattern contains two different options for the ruffles, with one option being shown in each of the samples pictured.
