Longies for Little Sprouts

April 11, 2017

 During April, our friends at Little Sprouts are running a longies knit-along, and what better excuse than to share some pattern ideas and look at some adorable babies while we're at it. We're sponsoring a spot prize - a Symfonie Deluxe needle set from Knit Pro, oooh la la!

All you need to do is knit (or crochet) a pair of longies, post a picture in the Little Sprouts event on Facebook  and you're in with the chance to win! And remember you can always drop items off to us in the shop and we'll pass them on for you. 

As an added bonus - comment on this post before Friday 14 April and one commenter will be gifted one of these paid patterns (pdf, via Ravelry). Hooray!


Toasty Waffle Pants by Kate Oates - in 10ply / worsted


Lamby Leggings by Sarah Lehto in 10ply / worsted weight


Starrypants by Tina Hauglund (how adorable is that star butt?!) in 8ply / DK

I’m taking part. Started with “braided longies” which is a free pattern. I’ve bought rocky too, so cute! Love those starry pants :)

Just the other day I was thinking about coming up with a pattern to knit my daughter some longies, but lo! Thanks to the magic of the Internet and the HRYC blog up pops a perfect looking pattern (the baby balloon pants). Thank you Tash!

This is a great opportunity to give back. I already have some ideas for yarn to use. And the possible patterns are so cute.


Angela said:

What a fabulous collection Tash!! All so adorable.


Stevie said:

Perfect. Just the small project I need for when I get bored of blanket knitting ?

I’ve knitted Kanoko Pants before for my niece, easy to make, with just enough interest to keep you from getting bored. And according to my sister, easy to wear as well, so far they survived two toddlers

I’d love to join in – the Rocky pattern is one that I’ve always wanted to try! So cute!
