There are some baby images that make grown men and women revert to the ever-reviled baby talk. They can’t help it. For me, baby pants do it every time! Look at those chubby little leggies! Who’s a little cutie pie?…. it devolves from there!
For Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe we wanted to COVER these babies in knits. Head to toe! This collection wouldn’t be complete without some woollies to cover diaper bums and chubby legs. The Rocky joggers are perfect for heading out for a stroll on a chilly day. Knit in fingering weight yarn they are light but warm, giving baby room to move.
Short Rows: A new tutorial!
These joggers use short row shaping to make room for little diaper bums, but don’t be scared! We have created a new tutorial on German Short Rows to help you through it. I recently discovered this short row method and I am sold, it is a lot easier to keep a good tension and avoid little holes that some other short row methods can leave.
The Yarn: SweetGeorgia Cashluxe Fine
For the Rocky joggers we had yet another great opportunity to use SweetGeorgia Yarns. Felicia of was one of our first supporters here at Tin Can Knits and we always jump at the chance to work with her gorgeous colourways. We designed these pants in Cashluxe Fine in Bison, Tumbled Stone, and Hush. Tough Love Sock is another great SweetGeorgia yarn for these wee pants too.
