Aztec Shorts

05-aztecWhen I had posted about my Girl Charlee April Knit Fix bag, I had mentioned that I wanted to enter their contest for the month…. and I barely squeaked in one entry.

I wound up using the “Royal fuchsia Navajo brushed cotton jersey blend” and a heavily modified version of Peek-a-boo Patterns castaway cargos to make a pair of shorts for Easton. I skipped the cargo pockets (I know, the whole point of the pattern, right?) and welts, but kept the front pockets in this one. To give this pair of shorts even more punch (because let’s admit it, they are loud), I used a red along the waistband and pockets.

The final result? Easton says they are the comfiest pair of shorts he owns and after working with the material, I see why – that fabric has a great hand. Now I’m wondering what I should make for myself out of it!
