After listening to my boys fight all weekend over who’s GI Joe got to wear the only pair of pants they own…I decided to knit them a pair (or three or four). I could not find any knit patterns so I made one up.

Hopefully, this pattern will save some other mother of boys’ sanity 😛


Yarn: Scrap yarn
Needles: Size 8 dpns
Darning needle
3.5mm crochet hook

Cast on 36 sts

Knit 2 rows.

Next row: *K4, K2tog, yo, repeat from * around.

Knit 10 rows.

Divide sts in half, placing 18sts on a scrap piece of yarn using a darning needle. Rearrange the remaining 18sts on the dpns, join & begin knitting the pant leg in the round.

Knit in round until pant leg reaches 4.5″.

Purl 1 row around.

Knit 1 row around.

Bind off.

Place the stitches saved on scrap yarn back on the dpns, join yarn and knit in the round until pant leg reaches 4.5″.

Purl 1 row around.

Knit 1 row around.

Purl 1 row around.

Bind off. Weave in ends.

Using crochet hook & scrap yarn, chain 65. Weave the chain in & out of the yo holes for a belt.


I finally finished dd’s wristlets. After trying out a few patterns and not finding them to suit my needs, I decided to just wing it. I think they turned out pretty well. Yes, they are a hideous green/silver Red Heart Sport acrylic (her choice, not mine – more proof that a 14yr old’s taste is all in her mouth), but I like the finished product. The inspiration for the twists came from a dishcloth pattern, I don’t know the author though.

Twist 1 Right: Knit next two stitches together and leave them on the left needle. Knit in the first stitch (between the two knit together), slipping both stitches off the needle.

Cast on 60. Divide evenly among 3 needles (20,20,20).
Ribbing: K2, P2 around. Repeat until ribbing measures 1/2″.
Knit two rounds.

Rnd 1: T1R, P2. Repeat around.
Rnd 2: K2, P2. Repeat around.

Repeat rounds 1, 2, 3 until piece measures 6″.

Working back & forth (as if a flat piece).
Start on row 2 of pattern (K2, P2) right side (RS).
Wrong side(WS), P2, K2 across.
Next round(RS): T1R, P2 across
WS: P2, K2 across

And just in the knick of time. I was literally binding off in the middle of a snow storm while waiting for my boys to get out of school. Mother nature couldn’t have waited FIVE minutes!

CO 39 stitches (or multiple of 3)
Row 1: (K3, P3) repeat to the end
Row 2: (P3, K3) repeat to the end

Repeat rows 1 & 2 until scarf is to desired length. Bind off in pattern.

I used 3 skeins of Patons SWS “Natural Gardenia” and US size 10.5 needles. My scarf is 72″ long. Perfect!
