I just made my first pair of crocheted shorties and they are pretty bulky and funny looking. I used a bloomer type pattern. How do your knit/crotchet shorties fit your little one? Show me pictures Please!
I don't have any pics of ds in shorties yet as the weather hasn't really allowed him to wear them much yet. However, I simply shortened the legs of the Pimp My Longies knit pattern to a length that currently fits ds. I measured the inseam on a pair of his shorts, knit leg 1 to that length, counted the rows, and then knit that many rows in leg 2.
I have pictures in 2 places ... and yes, they are bulkier than a PUL wrap.<br><br><a href="http://www.ravelry.com/projects/jrabbit/sheepy-skirt-collection" target="_blank">http://www.ravelry.com/projects/jrab...irt-collection</a><br><br><a href="http://philhyde.smugmug.com/Family/Crafty/6173041_bczhb#725484965_fGrki" target="_blank">http://philhyde.smugmug.com/Family/C...25484965_fGrki</a><br><br>
these are made from sweaters, and are less bulky:<br><a href="http://philhyde.smugmug.com/Family/Sweater-Pants/11117352_N2U4D#837974192_gMkZH" target="_blank">http://philhyde.smugmug.com/Family/S...37974192_gMkZH</a>
Those are beautiful and so creative! I love the patchwork look in some of them. How inspiring. I am finding I do like my two pair of crotchet shorties. I find paired with dresses or long tops they don't look as bulky. I did use a heavier yarn than it looks like you did. I just used what I had around. When I find a good affordable source of yarn i might experiment some more. Thanks for sharing!
