Introducing:  Tuxedo Pants
Tuxedo Pants is another pattern I originally designed for  Circular Knitting Redefined, and the copyright has reverted back to me!  Inspired by my friend Wendy and her absolute dedication to keeping her babies (all 7 of them) clad in wool pants I decided to take a spin on designs I'd seen and make some with a bit more of a tailored look.  I will tell you, this is what I make for my people when they get pregnant, I CANNOT resist the cuteness of knit baby pants!

The details:  Worked in the round, from the top down, with a casing for an elastic band waist, short row shaping to make room for the diaper,  ribbed stripes that go down the leg, long legs that cuff to give added length when your baby grows, and a wee bit of flaring at the bottom. Seriously, who can resist Baby Tuxedo Bellbottoms?  Sized for 0-3 months through 3T, you can see exact sizing and measurements here.  I knit them in Schaefer Yarn's Nichole, a durable heavy fingering weight superwash wool.You can read more details about Tuxedo Pants and purchase it on my website or on Ravelry.
