DIY Men’s Joggers with Patterns for Pirates Papa Bear Jogger Pattern

My husband has been asking for a new pair of joggers for a LONG time. Too long. Finally his birthday rolled around I managed to make another pair.

Our favorite pattern is the Patterns for Pirates Papa Bear Joggers.

I have made them before and they fit great. I select his size and grade based on the size chart and add a little length for his height.

I wanted something a little nicer than sweat pants so I went with a Ponte Knit and used Ribbing for the cuffs and band. (Sorry, not sorry, we don’t wear shoes at home.)

Lastly to add a little more finish I decided to add a but of vinyl using my Silhouette and an .svg file I purchased from a shop on Etsy, Milsea Design
