Worked both back and forth and in the round, this romper is made from the bottom up using one color every 2 (or multiple of 2) rows. The color blending effect comes from slipping every other stitch.

The legs are left open for a snap tape closure. The bib is a little taller in the back than the front, and the straps are created with a 1x1 rib around the entire armhole. The straps are left open for a snap or hook & loop tape closure as well. Instuctions for both long pants (pictured) and shorts included.

Instructions are written in both inches and metric.

Gauge: 17 sts and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) worked with larger needles in Linen stitch.
