You can also knit one inch, turn it under, and stitch it up as a hem if it's easier. Remember to leave a one inch gap to insert the elastic or drawstring. I made a pair of wool pants like these around Christmas time for my granddaughter. Nothing says you have to follow the pattern exactly. Break out of the box and make it your own. In sewing terms, this would be called a casing.
