Fancy pants are worked seamlessly in
the round from the top down, starting with Italian CO for 1x1 rib, rearranged into 2x2 rib for the waistband.

The waistband and rise are worked with 2 cakes, alternating them each round to achieve more even striping throughout. After the ribbed waistband, German short rows are worked for a slightly higher back. The rise is worked in stockinette, first even, then increasing down the center front and back for hips.

Modified Three-needle Bind Off technique is used to bind off stitches for the crotch. Legs are divided, each worked with a separate cake, shaped with decreases to taper down to the ankles. Cuffs are finished with 2x2 rib.
