Tinde-brace shorts are knitted from top to bottom. The upper part is in rib, while the body and legs are knitted in structure. You start by knitting the front piece, braces, and back piece back and forth separately while at the same time increase stitches on each side. Then knit the front piece and the back piece together and continue around in structure. Knit higher in the back for a good fit. The structure is elastic so that the shorts can be used for a long time and grows with the child. This is great for both babies and children and stays in place during active play.
