There’s a little nesting going on around here. These adorable knit trousers caught my eye and I thought they’d be perfect for a sweet chubalub next fall and winter! I loved the added texture of just a few rows of seed stitch…not so much that it takes twice as long to knit, but enough for interest and my tactile pleasure. Loved this free pattern- check out my Ravelry page for details. And I almost managed to make them out of some stash wool I had- until the last half a leg. Which means I now have enough for a matchy sweater- or another pair! I can’t wait to see them on our little one’s bottom.
