Do you remember these ?

Firstly from an old knitting book -

For the young girl ... the seam up the middle is knitted in and there is a very strong gusset !

Yes, they are very like gym knickers that I had to wear only mine were from some very thick material...

And similar to swimming costumes that stretched in the water..

Then we have some dainty knickers.

Pattern was taken from on line - these knitted up very quickly.

There was a worrying lady on the train back from London who sat next to me and wanted to know where the pattern was from because she wanted to knit herself some - she liked pants that covered all !!

And finally some that dont cover anything ...

The pattern was adapted from one on a blog (sorry cant remember which one)

I chickened out doing the icord round the waist

But this is what the back looks like ...

Not very comfy !!

And before anyone asks, no one has worn them and I've no intention of letting anyone either ... the thought of all that chaffing ;-)

And I'm off again today, last show adventure of the season - Harrogate - think it is going to be cold up north so I better do some sensible packing... If you are going to the show do call by the Knitting and Crochet Guild stand and say hello - might even let you touch my knickers !!

Those look great Sue! Can't imagine wearing them but beautiful even so. Maybe you'll have to wear your woolie knickers in Harrogate to ward off the cold!! Have fun!

They look amazing...but don't they itch? Or do you line the gusset with something?

Wonderful knickers. If they were a bit itchy, I suppose you could wear the big ones over the top of your ordinary smalls to keep the chills out...

Goodness me Its a long time since i have thought about gussets!! Thank you for answering my question before I asked it! So was it just an academic exercise? Or will you be framing them?
