If you knit then you might as well knit for fun as well, ok so these shorts may not be every bodies idea of discreet but I love em!!!
These pink shorts are so comfortable and very quick and easy to knit up.
Stitches: knit 2, purl 2.
Needles: One pair #8 strait knitting needles, D3.25 crochet hook.
Gauge: 14 sts and 22 rows=4"
Finished size: S(M,L)
Hip size: 36(39,42)"
Length: 11 (12 , 13 ) "
Leave long tale of yarn at the beginning.
Cast on 54(58,62) sts. Knit 1 row in 2X2 rib pattern. At the second row increase 1 st at both ends 2X. 58(62,66) sts are on the needle. Knit 11 (12,13)". Bind off all sts. Make 2 pieces. Each piece is half Front and half Back.
The wrong side out, sew or crochet the crotch (the increased part of the shorts). Do the same with the other leg. Turn one leg right side out, and insert it into the first leg which is wrong side out. The right side of the legs will be facing each other. Match the two inside leg seams, and pin the crotch area for stitching to the waist. Do the same for the other seam, and stitch it from crotch to waist.
Crochet a rope for the waist. Pull the rope through every 2 sts, tie a bow in the front. Finish the ends of the rope with two wooden beads.
