Thanks to all of you for the kind words... I'm so happy and very motivated :happydance:
Dear Jaxhill, the dreamy pink pant is based on the doodlepant but I incorporated the crotch from the Fern & Fernie Wool Soakers and Pants Pattern Book.
Basicially, you just place a marker in the center of the front and back of your pants and start increasing one stitch before and after the markers. I started about 1.5 inches before I plan to split for the leg holes and split when I've about 12 sts between my markers, then weaved the crotch tog with kitchener st. It's actually quite easy once you started doing it.
