Completed: Another pair of knit pants.

More knit pants

These are another project from the patterns at Wool Soaker Group. They’re knit flat in garter stitch, then seamed up. The pattern contained the direction to cast on both legs at the same time if you want, and that advice was sooo obvious, but sooo not something I would have thought of on my own.

Casting on both legs at the same time (from two different balls of yarn) provided me with the perfect solution to my nagging gauge difficulties with flat-knit pants. I knit differently by the time I start on the second leg, and the two legs end up different sizes from one another! But, working on both legs at the same time, I didn’t have this problem. Yay!

  1. hello, i love these knitted pants that you have made. Really gorgeous, could you let me know where to get the pattern from? Thanks so much rebecca

  2. If you click on the Wool Soaker Group link above, it will take you to the Wool Soaker Group on Yahoo Groups. You’ll need a Yahoo login, then you’ll need to join that group, then you can find the pattern in the Files section. It is called Garter Stitch Longies. I can’t post a link to it directly, because Yahoo Groups just doesn’t work that way.
