inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann's longie pattern, but adapted in a major way, my own "recipe" for longjohns, which my farmer husband loves and has worn for the past quarter century. They take apx. the same amt. of yarn and time as a top-down raglan pullover. I need to make up a new batch..my husband has been wearing some, including the pair above, for 20 yrs! they outlast those from the store many times over, and are a joy to knit.
