I made these for my friend’s baby. He’s awfully cute and these pants are awfully cute on him! They look kind of funny in this photo but I promise they look awesome in person. The yarn is IrishBabyKnit’s Elenya Alpaca in the Nolan colorway. I don’t remember exactly what needles I used, but I know sz 1 for the waist/cuffs because those are Cascade 220 which is a little bit thicker than the Elenya Alpaca. I think I used sz 3’s and then sz 6’s for the rest of the body. I don’t remember the exact stitch counts or anything at the moment – I worked a medium-ish size to get the striping to work out correctly. There’s a mistake because I was a moron and didn’t realise it until I was so far along I couldn’t bear to rip and re-start, but hopefully nobody will notice :)
I am particularly fond of the crotch gusset. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to look like this, but it does, and I like it! It’s really neat to look at. I wonder if there’s a different way to work the increases so it doesn’t stick up as much, though. I’m not sure.
I worked the waist from the longies UP, after taking out the provisional cast on because I couldn’t bear the thought of 106 or however many stitches worth of grafting. This meant there was a half-stitch jog where the color change occurred which led to this interesting texture. I kind of like it but I dislike how it’s not consistent (due to the k3, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 patterning).
