Girly Leggings and Soakers

A pair of hand knit leggings and two, too cute girly wool soakers! Roughly 6-12mo, but see exact measurements below.

Purple alpaca blend wool soaker and variegated blue/purple/black/teal wool skirt. Short rows are used in the back to make room for a cloth diaper, or just a baby booty. I'm labeling this as seconds since I set it down while grafting the crotch (gotta love kids!) and when I picked it up, I unintentionally started on the wrong stitch, basically turning it inside out. It does not effect the use of this ultra cute skirty, but I'll still cut the price to $25ppd!

The third picture shows the grafting.

Waist: 10.5", stretches to 19"
Rise: 18.5"
Leg cuffs: 5.5" diameter, stretches to 8"

Second is a pink/brown/maroon variegated wool soaker, again using short rows to leave room for your little one's tush and diaper. I've used this yarn for longies and it felts great, if that's what you want, and looks so cute next to anything else pink. $25ppd

Waist: 9.5", stretches to a touch before 16"
Rise: 18"
Leg cuffs: 6.5" diameter, stretches to 8.5"

I've been super excited to finish these since I found a Norwegian flower pattern to knit into these leggings! So cute for Christmas, and any time of year! Ribbing on the top, bottom, and on each side for comfort, and it is made out of a super soft Malabringo's Rios Merino Superwash wool yarn. The purple is variegated between a pinkish hue in the dark purple, to almost black. $20ppd

Length: 7.25"
Diameter: 6.5" unstretched, stretches around 8.5"
