  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Knit some cozy shorts using two strands of yarn held together. The front and back pieces are knit flat with simple shaping so the inseam and crotch depth are easy to customize. Hold DK weight yarns double to eat up your leftover stash for a chunky marled fabric. The waist incorporates a folded hem with an elastic band.

    Color pop side panels and afterthought pockets add a final splash to these comfy shorts.
