This is one of my favorite knitting patterns.  These bloomers are roomy enough for wearing over big cloth diaper butts, and they are good for layering with tights or leggings as the weather gets colder.  Ada wore her pairs of knitted bloomers for a couple of years and now they have been passed on to Josie.  This new red pair is for cousin Emeline.  The pattern is adapted slightly from Debbie Bliss’s Romper Panties Pattern from Essential Baby.  (Most of the knitted keepsakes at our house are from Essential Baby patterns).  The elastic waistband is added after knitting and I used this tutorial by Knit In Your Pants.  This method of elastic attachment keeps the waistband stretchy, but flat and comfortable.  Hooray for knitting weather!
