Harebell Bloomers - English
You start by casting on for back crotch using provisional cast-on method to avoid getting a seam between the legs. If you prefer, however, you can cast on using long-tail cast-on method or your normal go-to caston, and then later sew front and back crotch together instead. Back and front crotch are worked and shaped separately, back and forth, before being joined on one needle and continued in the round. The bloomers are further shaped in the back with short rows. Stitches are picked up around the leg openings and the bloomers finished with ruffles worked in the round.
