These roomy pantaloons we call Baby Harem are from our newly released series of knitting patterns. Along with Tremblant Blanket, Tee, and Bunting for Beginners they make up our Wee Collection Fall 2014.
These pants are knit in one piece from the cuff up. The pocket is knit first and then knit into the pants, also with no seaming required. Extra room in the trunk for diapers is achieved with short row shaping. The elastic waist keeps everything in place for crawlers and walkers too.
We used sweet Koigu mini skeins for the accent colours. The delicate, stripe details that decorate the ribbed cuffs and the pocket lining are really the delicious, defining details in this garment. Have fun picking the colours!
