Tinker Bell Bloomers
A 'Knitting for Olive' design - PDF or Printed Pattern
The Tinker Bell Bloomers are worked from the bottom up.
This pattern uses "Provisional cast on" when casting on for the back piece, to avoid seams between the legs, but your usual cast on-method can be used as well.
The front and back pieces are knitted back and forth; the rest of the work is knitted in the round.
The bloomers are made longer and roomier in the back by knitting short rows.
The bloomers have an I-cord drawstring in the waist.
