need help with pattern/pinterest
Hello

I have been looking for knitting patterns for swimsuit coverup and summer shorts. I found both on pinterest but I have no idea how to get the pattern. I am not even clear on how pinterest works.

I have the 2 links below of the items I would love to knit:

Any help please!!

Thank you. I was finally able to figure that part out. But I cannot find the shorts and they are just adorable!!!!

The link they have is a photobucket picture. UGH.

If not, do you know of a summer shorts pattern I can download??

Well - I found the original picture of the shorts - http://wethepeoplestyle.com/2011/07/summer-knit/ - however, they're just something she owned and not something she knit. She refers to them as Shakuhachi knit shorts, which (poking around) looks like the brand, actually.

Two hot pants/shorts patterns that could possibly have cables worked into them:

QUESTION: And maybe you can help, if I make the "knit shorts in Paris" pattern in small, where would I place the cables to look like the other ones???

Any help is much appreciated!!!!

I also love the yarn she used... I hate that they were on a "knitting patterns" site, made me look for that dang pattern for hours. So happy you were able to solve the mystery for me!!!!

No problem. I'll leave it to others to help with adding cables to the pattern. Far beyond my experience level at the moment.
