My niece asked me for a pair and after a couple of trials I think I got exactly what she wanted.
They will have a seam down the inside leg as i do not use circulars!
They are ribbed at the top and bottom and have a lacy pattern that is super easy!!
aprox 200grammes of sport weight yarn
(double knitting for UK)
Knitting needles size US5 or 3.75mm
This size fits most.
If you need to make them wider or narrower you can adjust the pattern accordingly
You can also make short ones as boot toppers! Use your imagination and have fun with the pattern
*Measure the length you want.
for example, I chose 19" long
choose your rib height, top and bottom - I chose ": for the top and 3" for the bottom - I like the bottom to be less than the top*
so that means i need to knit 12" in pattern
K = knit
P = purl
Sts = stitches
YO = yarn over needle (increasing a stitch)
P3tog - purl three sts together
Lets get started!
I knitted mine from the bottom up.
CO on 56 sts and knit in K2P2 rib for about3" (or for however high you would like the rib to be)
Start the pattern as follows:
Row 1 - knit
Row 2 - Purl
Row 3 - * K1, YO, p1, P3tog, P1, YO, K1* - repeat till end
Row 4- Purl
These 4 rows form the pattern.
Knit until desired length
Switch to K2, P2 rib for 4" (or however high you would like the top)
Knit another one
Sew up seams
