See if you can check out Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top from your local library. I think the basic pants were something like leggings, but she gives numerous variations including shorts and bikini bottoms. I don't remember whether any of them would be suitable for men; I really didn't look at that section of the book very much. I wish I could tell you more, but I had to return the copy I had to the library the other day because I had renewed it the maximum number of times.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
