The Anders shorts are knitted from the top to bottom in st st. First you knit a drawstring on circular needles for your i-cord and/or elastic band for the shorts to fit better around the waist. The work is then divided into a front and back piece. The front and back pieces are knitted back and forth to make an opening for the pockets, before they are knitted together again on a circular needle. In the end the legs are knitted separately. We have chosen to knit the pockets and i-cord in a contrast color.
