WHAT IS IT?
A crochet pattern for a pair of ribbed, slightly flared shorts with elastic waist. The back panels are wider and longer than the front, giving more room for the bum. Extra rows on the sides of the shorts makes them a little A-lined. The pattern follows measurements and can therefore be made in any size and length. The pattern has links to a video helping you to connect the different sized panels, inserting elastic as well as measuring your body.
