Hip shaping for baby leggings
I am making my first EZ project - the baby leggings from February in the Knitter's Almanac. I am so impressed by all the wonderful variations posted on this blog! I have a question about the hip shaping. EZ's text says she increases 2 stitches every 3rd row, but the "pithy" directions seem to suggest that you increase 4 stitches (2 before and after the 3 stitches marked at the front and back centers). If so, how do you go from 84 initial stitches to the 126 EZ says you should have before dividing for the legs?
Also - not to mix subjects - but I have my eye on the February baby bonnet, too. Although I see a general description in the February text, I don't see the details of the pattern written up in the Almanac. Does it appear in any of the other EZ books?
