Gauge: 20 stitches and 28 rows per 4”/10 cm in 1x1 ribbing with fingering weight yarn held double (st gauge is taken when stretched, row gauge is taken when relaxed).

Needles: (2) sets of 40” circular needles and 1 set of DPNs in size needed to achieve gauge listed above (suggested size: US 8/5mm).

Designer’s note: Everyone knits differently so I highly suggest swatching and adjusting your needles to get the desired fabric. Keep in mind, the way your swatch stretches reflects how your pants will stretch to fit your body.

Materials used: Yarndyeries Superwash Merino Singles held double (fingering; 100% merino wool; 434 yds/100 g, OR any other yarn that knits up to desired gauge).

Other notions: Elastic for the waistband (3/4”/1.9 cm), stitch markers (at least 5), crochet hook/tapestry needle, scrap yarn/stitch holder and scissors.
