Do any of you know where I could find a pattern for pants? Maybe even one on the internet? I have the Spring issue of Interweave Knits and I really like the pattern for the No-Sweat Pants but I'd like to check out more and see if I could find varying styles.

The No-Sweats in Interweave are the only ones I've seen . . . though a lot of the folks out there who have knitting blogs have made them with changes to the pattern (I've seen mainly people who knit the legs in the round instead of flat).  Sorry I can't be of more help!

you have seen a *nice* pattern for knitted pants? this shatters my world.

the only pattern i've got is part of a ridiculous head-to-toe aran ensemble from the 70s, involving a balaclava, sweater, mitts, knickerbockers and spats.

 I made the no-sweat pants.  There must be something about this pattern that just screams for reinterpretation.  Mine were worked with the front and back of each leg as one piece, I dread sewing seams but couldn't figure out off the top of my head how to work the legs in the round and still be able to have the crotch seam work out.  Also I was very careful about counting rows, having read several blogs where the legs were obviously different lengths. 
 They're weird-looking when finished, until you try them on.  They're so warm and snuggly soft and only get fuzzier after washing. 

Good luck!

Try to find Barbara Walker's "Knitting from the Top" at the library, or bookstore, or www.schoolhousepress.com Smiley  It's a fabulous book, and, in addition to sweaters, skirts, and hats, she tells how to make pants from the top down, which means there's no funny-business at the crotch.  Also you can get the length juuuust right because you can try on as you go.  If you can't find a copy, let me know and I'll just post the general instructions.

Have fun!

I've got an awesome lace pants pattern in a past issue of Vouge knitting. Nice and sexy for the summer. I haven't knit them yet, tho.

Now get craftin'!

hi, what issue of vogue was this?

Vogue Knitting Winter 2004/05 has a pair of knitted pants.  They are made with mitred squares in varying colors.   They're interesting looking, I was thinking about attempting them, but the yarn called for is pretty tiny and it calls for US3/3.25mm needles, which freaked me out a bit!  I'm a chicken about the tiny needles/big project.  I have thought that I could re-work the pattern using worsted and size 6 or 7 needles, but haven't gotten to it yet. 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
