P is a cloth diaper boy, but for some reason I put off knitting longies. I realized that winter was starting to slip away (by the calendar, not by what is outside) and that I had better knit up some longies for the rest of the season. I've heard many people rave about using these as covers for cloth diapers, so I am interested to see how well they work. I soaked them in lanolin (Northern Essence Wool Wash) to increase the waterproofing properties of the wool.
This is a great pattern and very easy project. I only made a few modifications:
- Waist band: 8 rows knit, one row purl, 8 rows knit
- Four short rows (instead of 3) for cloth diaper room
- Shorter insteam (25cm)
- Smaller needle for garter stitch cuff
