It's about 6 inches from the split for the legs to the ruffle for capris, full pants need to be 9 or 10 inches in total length.

The button tab idea is great!  The kids have jeans and pants with that feature and we used it a lot for pants that fit but were too long.

My gauge is about 4 stitches to the inch, you can knit the waistband a bit tighter, and get about 5 stitches to the inch to make that fit a little snugger.

Hope that helps!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Thanks again, for all your help.
But when you say, "It's about 6 inches from the split for the legs to the ruffle for capris", do you mean with the ruffles attached?
Or, not attached?
Sorry to be such a pest. I just want to get it right.  Cheesy

6 inches is where the increase row is for the start of the ruffles.  If I flattened out the ruffles and measured them the whole thing would be closer to 7 inches.

Don't worry about it, I'm still working on my morning coffee and don't have the motivation to actually be doing anything just yet...   Grin
