The teeny-tiny jeans were finished last night, when I spent the evening on my couch, enjoying myself. Watching TV! (I liked it!)
They are made in HP "Jeans", a 100% cotton yarn that is denim-colored, meaning it's colored the same way as jeans, making it fade a little over time (and making the yarn ooze color! My fingers were completely blue from knitting....). I made them with leftover yarn from another pair of jeans, and made the smallest size to make sure I had enough. I used a total of 75 grams.
Ellers må jeg næsten strikke et par mere i en lidt større størrelse. For det er et faktum, at disse bukser er ET HIT!!!! Alle dem jeg har strikket, er modtaget med kyshånd, og jeg tør næsten godt sige, at du vil blive meget populær, hvis du strikker dem til en lille trold i omgangskredsen. Opskriften er denne her, og det tager ikke lang tid.
They are really tiny! Last time I made them in the smallest size (for the newborn cousin of my sisters kids), I was almost embarrassed to give them as a gift, because how would a baby fit in them? I was told they fit very nicely, so that's why I'm trying again. And, as you see, my good (very) old teddybear "Ulla" looks good in them, so I hope it will work out!
Otherwise I'll just have to knit another pair in a larger size. It's a fact that these jeans are HOT! Every pair I made were welcomed and I dare say that you will become extremely popular if you make a pair for a small one you know. The pattern is this one, and they don't take long to finish.
