Hosenmatz by Mayumi Kaliciak And Antje Litzmann

Hosenmatz by Mayumi Kaliciak and Antje Litzmann is a sweet pattern for relaxed baby pants in fingering weight yarn. The ribbing and structure  through the derriere offer a lot of room to move and the designer notes that these will easily accommodate cloth as well as regular diapers. Knitted in the round from the top down the legs are ended with long cuffs that can be folded at first and then left open as baby grows to increase the lifespan of the garment. Clever :-).
