The Endless Toddler Longies that took me several months have finally been finished! Phew!
The yarn is Utiku mixed berry – I love this colourway but its been discontinued for over a year now. I bought the yarn specifically for longies so these have been about 18 months in the making *blush* I started out knitting one leg of a pair on flats, but never got any further. Then in March this year I frogged that leg and started over with my pattern.
The inside leg measurement from the edge of the gusset to the bottom is 13.5 inches! (no wonder I got bored!) That includes a 2 inch 2×2 ribbed cuff, which is folded up for now but gives her room to grow.
I think I cast on 112 stitches (I can’t remember! It was either that or 108 ) and as you can see they are fairly close fitting on her (not tight, but not baggy either). And she is a miss skinny pins too, so for a chubbier 2 y/o you’d definately need to use 120+ stitches. These took just under 200g, which was a relief!
No embroidery for these – I’m just pleased to get these finished, and tbh I’m rather sick of the sight of them!
