Apple Tree Shorties

Add Image

Pattern: I started with the Curly Purly Soaker pattern (again) in the largest size, and just knitted on without decreasing until about 9" and incorporated a crotch before spliting up the legs.

Yarn: I hank of Cascade 220, plus scrap yarns for the cuffs and the apple tree motif

Needles/Gauge: 4.5mm/4sts per inch

Finished Size : Waist 14"unstretched, Hip 19", Rise 23"

Start to finish: 22 ~ 26 April 2007

See more photos on my blog post.

Notes: My Swiss darning was just too horribly wonky, so I ended up knitting the apple tree separately and sewn it on instead. It's so much easier this way and I love the results but somehow it does feels like cheating... ;op
