deima's rib trousers
when creating deima's sporty shorts, i got to thinking.. about the times during the winter, where i personally love to wear a pair of woolen trousers. the fit needed to be just right, and the choice of yarn too. that's how deima's rib trousers came to be.
the trousers have a high waist, with increases at the front and back in a decorative pattern. they are knitted in a double rib stitch, with german short rows in the back to achieve the optimal fit. they are straight in the legs, but have a bit of a flare when worn.
all in all, super flattering and super cute!
hopefully you'll knit along with me!
