Get your Intelligent Behind into a cute little pair of boy shorts and express your love for rationality, reason, and the man with the plan, Charles Darwin. These shorts are knit top-down and in the round, so there's almost no finishing. If you want to skip the duplicate stitch motif, you can have these quick little knits on your tuckus in no time at all. Assets of Evo are worked in a super stretchy yarn called Esprit, made of cotton and elastic. Knit with a bit of negative ease, with the yarn held loosely, these shorts hug the body. Throughout the pattern, you'll find notes on customizing the fit. But don't forget, modifications may require extra yarn, so plan accordingly.
