An eary summer shorts for those warm spring and summer days, or a lacy shorts over stockings for the cooler days. The structure of the fabric makes the garnment very elastic so they will fit for a long period of time.

The shorts is knit bottom up, on a short circular needle. The lace is madu up only by throws, decreases, knits and purls, and is very easy to handle even for a novice knitter.

If you have a very slim child, I would advise you to consider a smaller size for the width of the shorts as it is a bit big for the lower age of the given size.
