Tania's Legwarmers

Well..one of them, anyway. One down, 15 to go.

I'm making 8 pairs of legwarmers as 'thank you' gifts for the students/cast members in the ballet I'm choreographing for the university. They need to be finished by Feb 28th. I decided I'd better seam them as I finished them, so the dreaded seaming of 16 legwarmers isn't left for the last minute.



I modified the pattern as follows: cast on 32 sts (instead of 27)

Stitch Pattern:

Row 1: sl st purlwise, (K2, P1) to last st, K1
Row 2: sl st purlwise, (K1, P2) to last st, K1

Did 5 rows in pattern with grey, then switched to rose and knit in pattern for another 30 rows (35 rows total, or 9 inches). Switched back to grey for remaining 5 rows. Bind off. Seam together with mattress stitch. Final piece measures 10 inches.

Seaming that many pairs of legwarmers is horrifying!! This sounds like it's time for you to start knitting in the round... you'll never have to seam again!
