You know the story...on a whim I bought 2 balls of beautiful chunky handspun wool that my lys had on clearance, thinking they'd make a pretty and quick soaker pant for my dd.  But I can't find a pattern and I'm not confident enough in my math to work it out on my own.  Anyone know if one exists?

TIA!

disclaimer: I haven't tried any of those.  I tend to just experiment, and I do a lot of frogging. :lol

Oh you could also just try using a pattern for worsted weight yarn, but knit a size smaller than you need, on needles appropriate for your yarn (so bigger needles.)

Thank you.  I think I'll start with your idea to knit a size smaller...but the ottobre pattern was really cute.  I hope this works! :)
