Bean Sprout Bloomers

Bean Sprout Bloomers are worked from the bottom up using 1 strand of Merino, Cotton Merino or Pure Silk. You start working front and back crotch separately back and forth before work is joined and continued in the round. If you prefer, you can cast on using provisional cast-on in order to avoid seaming at the crotch, or alternatively (as pictured), cast on using long-tail cast on and then sew the crotch edges together afterwards. The bloomers are shaped in the back with German short rows. Stitches are picked up for the leg openings and the edges worked in the round. The bloomers are tied in the waist with an i-cord drawstring.
