The Bum Cosy is just what it sounds like; a cute and sexy little hip hugger that's meant to be worn over jeggings or tights to keep your bum warm and stylish in this chilly weather. The Bum Cosy has simple, stretchy cabled ribs to give it form while keeping the elasticity. It's accented by 2 chain link cables that run fetchingly down the side of the hips. If you fancy a skirt length, instructions are given for making it longer. The waistband is reinforced with a crochet chain or knited i-cord that you will weave through the ribbing to tighten the piece as needed. A straightforward, seamless, top-down knit, it's easy enough for those starting out, and mindless enough for seasoned pros to whip off in a few days. Because it's built to allow for a lot of stretch, it's knitted with 2 inches of negative ease and instructions are given on how to choose the right size. Hip sizes for 28", 30", 32", 34", 36", 38", 40", 42" and 44" have been provided. Each one has been designed as a separate chart, so there is no need to keep track of which size you're knitting. Just pick the chart that's right for you and knit on! The pattern uses 400-600 yards of worsted weight yarn, and the sample was knit in Sweet Georgia Superwash Worsted, in the colour 'Cayenne'.
