Rainbow Longies in Action

Back in October 2015, I blogged about one of my WIPs-Rainbow Longies, but failed to show the completed project. I completed them in early winter, over a year ago, and my son wore them during cold days and weeks we had last winter.

It has been cold the last week. On Sunday morning, as we were getting ready for church, I told my son, "You're 2 1/2. You don't care what you wear, so I will put these warm wooly pants on you." I figured that I can't get away with this for much longer. Thankfully, he was very compliant.

The knitting pattern was super easy, As I started knitting a different color, I used the jogless circular knitting method following the directions in this YouTube video below.

My husband liked this knitting project because no new yarn was purchased.

What knitting method do you use when knitting with a different yarn color to a project?

  1. Your comment about your husband made me laugh. One of my goals for this year is to knit more from my stash AND to knit patterns from all of the books I have instead of downloading new ones.

  2. So sweet! I love the joggles stripe method as well, and use it frequently (I love using color in my designs!)

  3. love the rainbow longies. wish i had more time to knit.

  4. I would learn how to knit just to make these! They're so cute

  5. Been tempting to knit. My mom crochet baby clothes.

  6. Cute! Haven't tried longies before.
