I didn't care for no trim until I knit up a pair with a colorway that I had dyed and was too lazy to dye trim for. They are one of my favorite pairs! Surprised me!

I think it depends on the colorway. If it's a semi solidish looking colorway, I do not mind no trim. I dont mind no trim on the legs either, I do that a lot. But for a variegated colorway, I like trim up on the waistband for sure.

I like trim on the waistband, but not the cuffs. I like no trim too.

I like both. if i have trim or extra yarn to dye for it then I use it. If not then I don't,

I love how the waist band swirls and there isn't much you can do but again it's not seen anyway unless your child is shirtless.

I just finished these up and I love them.



Another pair I did with no trim that I love.

It depends for me too. I like both, and like other's said the trim has to be a perfect match.

I've knit both and like both but I do tend to knit shorties/longies with trim more often than not.
