Legwarmers for an 8 years old performed on a 30 something years old. Cast on 56 stitches and knit on two needles size 5. The rope pattern in the middle takes 16 stitches. Yarn: Austermann Inka, wool and alpaca.
I made these jeans for the little guy, I sewed them out of my old ones. I cut the front parts together with the "ready made" button part, I also left all the original decorative seams and sew the pieces together just next to them. In a similar way I inserted the original front pockets and reused the old belt.
I kind of want them to look like that it has been redone from the old jeans, that there is some wit in creating clothes but I also enjoyed hiding it and making up the way how to get closest to the original pair of jeans.
