Knit longies patterns

Ive been out of the loop for several years, but now I have a new baby and have been knitting again. I am curious what knit longies patterns everyone is using these days. I purchased 3 different patterns several years back and it seems like only 1 of them is still available (Sheepy time knits).

Some friends of mine would like to learn to knit longies for their little ones so I was thinking it would be good if we all got the same pattern and that way when they had questions I would be able to help since I'll have the pattern as well.

So, tell me what's out there!

I saw the Daisyhead delight pattern on revelry and thought that might be a good one. Anyone tried it?

Re: Knit longies patterns

I haven't tried that one mama. The one I use is this one http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...nts-all-in-one
It's easy for beginners. The dakine pattern is also super detailed and easy to use, and poplular lol http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dakine-longies. And I think a lot of people still use the Sheepy time pattern. Have fun, I wish I had a knitting group!

Re: Knit longies patterns

Thank you for the feedback! I might stick with the Sheepy Pants since I am familiar with it! Yes I am excited that some of the other moms want to knit too!

Eviepants is the best! One pattern for longies, bloomers, skirties and soakers. Great detail and pictures and Marilyn is a super sweet mama.

My favorites are Evie and Sheepy pants... I'd use sheepy since it's what you have

My favorites are BFL and MMR. Also like Aran or Licorice Twist too. Or if it's for a wee little one Gaia.
