Tinker Bell Bloomers - English
This pattern uses "Provisional cast on" when casting on for the back piece, to avoid seams between the legs, but your usual cast on-method can be used as well.
The front and back pieces are knitted back and forth; the rest of the work is knitted in the round.
The bloomers are made longer and roomier in the back by knitting short rows.
The bloomers have an I-cord drawstring in the waist.
