I know I shared the teensy tiny pair of Longies that I knit for our baby. Then I was feeling a little bit guilty. After all, I haven't knit a single thing for anyone other than a baby who hasn't been born yet. Plus, no one can model that tiny stuff. And let's be honest, you really need a cute model in order to properly show off clothes that cute, right?
So, I set about making a slightly larger pair of longies for my slightly larger child. I might love these even more.
And yes, Lucas really is THAT skinny. At 22 months, he's just around 18 pounds. Eats like a garbage disposal, but none of it sticks to him. According to my husband's mother, he takes after his father. Just wait till I post the picture she brought me.
I used this pattern again and cast on the 89 stitches that the pattern follows for a smallish size. Of course, they're just a tad too big for Lucas. So, after these pictures were taken, I made him up a drawstring. Perfection.
I admit to making him wear them for two days. In a row. Judge me.
