After almost a year-long #partnership in the making, #KnitCrate and #SeeLoveShare have teamed up for their #December issue. Their #beautiful #yarn and my #legging #patterns (both #knit and #crochet) is being featured this month! I am over the moon ????!
Here are the details…
This pattern is worked in rounds starting from the top of the leg warmer. Each round ends with a slst to the top of the first stitch in the beginning of round. This pattern is designed to sit right above the knee and down to cover the top of your arch. The pattern can adjusted by increasing/decreasing the width of the band with increments of 2 sts. See notes on measurements below.
Top and bottom bands (folded flat): 4.5in
Full Length: 26in
To estimate if the top band will fit, ch the first 55st and wrap it around your knee, this should be snug (it will loosen up a bit as you begin to work the pattern). If it is too tight/loose, increase/decrease by 2st increments. The pattern from that point remains the same.
This Pattern uses Exclusive Yarn from the team at KnitCrate. Click below for all the details. And – Use Coupon code SEELOVESHAREIT20 for an additional 20% off your order!!
