How did you modify the kanoko pattern? I'm currently making that and was wondering if there were better improvements to make for longies???

Oh... I didn't mean to tease you gals. It's a program offered as part of my health insurance. I work at Target and have my coverage through them. I pay enough of my check in premiums, so I'm glad I can at least get a little of it back.

I don't like how they look with her initial increase after the waistband (maybe it would look better for a girl?) so I don't do the increases at all (just keep the same amount of stitches as waist). I added short rows on the bum, 8 I think? I also decrease made more of a gusset at the crotch. So if you have 72 stitches, I made the legs with 32 stitches each, and knit 4 stitches down the middle together (so 8 total). Does that make sense? It's hard to describe. I also use a worsted weight yarn - I think from her sizing she uses sport weight.

I don't think she meant these as longies for diapering when she made them, so I think the extra gusset and short rows to create a roomier bottom will accommodate a fluffy bottom better.

Actually I made a 'newborn' pair with double worsted & just cut all the directions in half.

I always do this, too. Totally just for the coupons. I also register at Babies R Us and get a good coupon around 8 months.
