These knickers were really fun to knit up. I was a little intimidated at first when I read through the pattern. There were some techniques that I hadn't done before. Like adding the lace to the bottom with double points and K2tog. The crochet cast on, which I've done that before is not my favorite. But when all is said and done, I'm so glad I did the pants. They are so flippin' cute. When my daughter Emma runs around in them it just makes me happy, her too! I got the pattern from http://www.knitty.com/ the pattern is named Emma's Underthings. Not the same Emma! I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Caribbean Blue. My Emma picked out the color, she has an eye for fashion and flare!
