It was about time for a new pair of pants for Finn. The weather is cooling off and nothing says fall like cozy wool pants. I saw these pants on Rav and I fell in love with them. Once I realized I had exactly the yarn I would need to make a pair for Finn I set to work making these leggings. I used a pattern I was already familar with (these pants) and just modified it to be leggings with a rolled ribbed cuff.
I can't tell you how pleased with the results I am. They are soft, colorful and exactly what I imagined. I used Debbie Bliss soft yellow baby cashmerino held double with Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop Yarn in Sunshine of Your Love. It's as though they were made for each other. I hope these pants fit for a long time. There is lots of room in the rise and the cuffs can be rolled down. I think I should make pants more often.
