I'm working on LTK longies. I've done the pattern before, but this time I want to do it in 2x2 horizontal stripes- alternate two rows of orange with two rows of red. My issue is that on the backside of the pants, there are short rows to shape the pants to fit aorund a bulky baby butt. How can I continue the striped pattern through this area without making it blatently obvious that there are short rows? I feel like just continuing the 2 orange/two red rows pattern would just outline the short row/butt area as noncontinuous.
I've been trying to make a swatch of striped pattern to practice, but can't seem to get it right. Help! Is this even possible?
