I don’t know exactly what to say except that these are the cutest little pants I’ve ever seen, and I made them! The pattern is Emma’s unmentionables from knitty.com, and I use knitpicks cotlin for them. This should wash up well and hold its shape. And for a cotlin combo, it didn’t even hurt my hands while knitting it. I had to lengthen the leg portion about 2 inches total, as I’d like to get a year or two wear out of them. She is quiet pleased with them as well, and loves to prance around making the ruffles flutter.
I am now going to embark on a matching top for this.
