Legwarmers!

Easy Legwarmers


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
Abbreviations
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)
Cast off!

Knit another one

Sew up seams

Wear!!


Easy Knitted scarf or shawl


I found out that this type of scarf is called a BAKTUS SCARF
Its really easy - all the rows are knit
You have some short rows and that's about it!

(if you dont want to knit, but like the finished product, it, and more, are available on http://louisefelice.com )

You will need - 100gms or about 420 yards of 4 ply or sock weight yarn
# 5 US needles (3.74 mm)
Fine yarn works the best but you can use up to double knitting or worsted weight. If you use the thicker yarn I would also use larger needles - go up by one size at least

Abbreviations.
YO: yarn over,
ssk: slip one stitch, knit one stitch, pass slipped stitch over
K: knit

 SOME HINTS:
I bought 2 balls of yarn and started the decreases when i finished the 1st ball.
You can make a longer or smaller scarf using the 2 ball method and not measuring
If you want the same effect, but use a thicker yarn, I would omit the ruffles - ie leave out rows 2 and 5 for a sharper angle or just knit without the short rows)

Instructions:
Cast on 10 sts
Row 1. Knit
Row 2. (short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3 knit
Row 4 Knit
Row 5 - like row 2
Row 6: k 8, YO, knit till end.

Repeat these 6  rows until you have about 70 sts (or used half your yarn!)
Now the decreases start:

Row 1: knit
Row 2:(short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: like row 2
Row 6: K7, ssk, YO, ssk, knit to end
Repeat these 6 rows till you have 10 sts left

cast off

READY!!!
