YYMN Slots for Knit Longies / Shorties / Soakers / Skirties / Gnomes!



I am now open for YYMN testers! I will accept payment in either paypal or equal amount and value of yarn for me. Please be aware that I am not new to knitting, but I have never knit for profit before, so these are tester slots for which I ask feedback on technique and fit. I hope my prices reflect that I am just starting out and I hope that you will give me a try! Please let me know if you believe my prices are unfair, so that I can rethink them!


I am now a licensed eviepants knitter!




I am working on choosing other patterns to knit. If there is interest, I am willing to apply for a license for overalls, hats, rompers, sweaters, etc.

How a YYMN slot will work:

Option A (paypal): You will send me your yarn. Please send enough yarn to finish your item. When your item is finished, you will send me funds via paypal. I will send you your item(s) along with your extra yarn.

Option B (yarn payment): You will send me your yarn as well as an equivalent yarn for myself. The yarn payment will need to be approved by me ahead of time. When your item is finished, I will send you your item(s) along with your extra yarn.

Prices and approx. amount of yarn needed (NB / Small / Medium / Large):

Longies or Skirty: $24 / $26 / $32 / $36 - 200 yds / 220 yds / 280 yds / 320 yds
Shorties: $18 / $20 / $26 / $30 - 140 yds / 160 yds / 220 yds / 260 yds
Soaker: $14 / $16 / $24 / $28 - 100 yds / 120 yds / 200 yds / 240 yds

Prices include Shipping back to you with DC to the US.

Prices include seed stitch cuff knit in your yarn or trim yarn.

Please send your child's measurements so that I can adjust the sizing to fit.

I have limited yarn to use for a MYMN slot. If you are interested in one of these options, please let me know. Please add the price of the yarn to your price above.


316 yds - cost $15


Peace Fleece - 200 yds - cost $8

I have access to Cascade 220 in a variety of colors, their cost is approx. $8 per 220 yds.

For MYMN, I require a $10 non-refundable deposit with the balance payable when I finish your item.

If so desired, I can use your extra yarn to make your child a matching gnome doll! I can provide cream or tan yarn for the skin color. Cost for 1 gnome is $8. Gnomes look like this (but will certainly look better in lovely colorway yarns!):








The following are samples of my work that are currently available to buy.

Capris and Hat set, made of hand dyed wool.

Inseam: from bottom of ruffle to crotch - 5.5"
Rise: approx 16"
Hips: approx 16"
