No, not really sorted yet.

I have the evening to knit tonight, so want to know what I'm doing by then, so I can just go on with it.

The main things I am stuck on are:
-I am knitting inside out - would it matter if I flipped it to the correct way and then just carried on - or would I then get the garter stitch and ss all muddled?
-short rows. I have done them before on flats, but never on circulars. The tutorial is a wee bit confusing, cause I also haven't wrapped with short rows before. I am not keen on getting holes - I got those with my other short rows. And I can't work out how to turn the work with circulars. Is it just flipping from correct side in to correct side out?

Anyway, aside from all that - I am really loving knitting this pattern. I think it is really cool. And I thank you for sharing it :D

ETA: I am also waiting on two others to give me some pointers. I'm sure I will 'get' it soon! :oops:

They are cool Annie! What did you dye them with?

LOVE the way the colours have striped in the earflap hat!

Follow the ling on the first page. This is the popular "pimp my longies" pattern knitting in the round and comes in NB, small, medium, large, and xlarge. Depends how tall the 1.5yr old is they might be just between medium and large. I love this pattern and have knitted quite a few in different sizes and will do more for this baby, check out ravelry too for pictures

Just realised that I have knit 11 pairs of these now! Love this pattern, so straight forward and easy to adapt, here's my photo overload of the longies and some of the matching set that I made them to go with...

Small

Medium (fit H from 9mths - 18mths ish)
ImageImage

ImageImageImage

ImageImageImage

Image

Large (these are more like x-large due to using thicker yarns and adding length to match - still fit H with plenty of growth space at almost 3yrs old)

ETA: sorry for some of the huge photos!

Yip, I just do a round of KFB then put every second stitch on a second circular - one circular continues to be the pants, the other you knit the skirt on
