I have been knitting for years and My brothers and father both love to hunt. Every year they go and put on several layers of cloths and get into their gear and go out hunting. One day my brother Shaun came to me and asked me if I could knit him a pair of men's long Johns. I told him well I don't know if I can knit one but you go buy me a pair of men's thermal underwear in your size and I will see what I can do. The first thing i did when he brought me the underwear is I had laid them out and cut the seams so I had piece's of a pattern. I then went and had gotten some very very soft fine yarn and started knitting. First I started with the crotch. I first knitted the brief front. I did a crochet chain and casted on my stitches knitted one piece and left it on the needles and then knitted the second piece and just reversed the decreases and increases and when i got done i took both brief fronts and grafted them together with a 3 needle cast off but i only kitted them together and then started working back and forth and increasing the stitches for the butt or ass of the long johns. Then when i was done i just left the piece on the needles. Picked up my second set of needles and started working the legs. When I got all done I did a flat graft for all the seams. You would never believe how nice they came out and how warm they are. You would think that hand knitted long johns would be itchy and scratchy but they are very very soft and comfortable. You don't feel the seams and you can't even see where they were put together. I have many many patterns of men's knitted long underwear and hand knitted boxer briefs. If any one is interested in making a pair just hit me up and send me a message. I have had so much fun knitting these for my family and friends who love the extra warmth and love hand knitted items. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have been knitting for over 30 years and have mastered Irish, German, Eastern, Western, English and Cotinentil knitting. I love to make fair isle sweaters and gloves as well as fisherman gansys and all kinds of fun projects. I have made and designed my own stuff and have also made many many patterns and projects for the big bear men. My books will be published next year and will be selling for $ 7.99. I'm excited to be able to have my own work published and out there for people who want to knit for there man or loved ones. I will be posting pics the long johns and of my other works as soon as I get a new camera or get mine fixed. Hope to have the pics up by the end of the month. Thanks for reading my blog.
