I was curious about having some leg warmers for added warmth this coming winter season, so I knit up a pair of Jane Richmond’s Leg Warmers. One could easily whip up a pair of these in a day or two, depending on their spare time. While I don’t “love” them, I’m sure I’ll use them with boots, or even hidden under some wider leg jeans!
Yup, another test knit. I love doing test knits for other designers as it forces you to produce an FO (you have a deadline). It’s great for practicing the art of knitting. Finally, as an aspiring designer who has a few patterns under her belt, it gets you better aquainted with all the aspects of producing a pattern that will work well for other knitters. I never used test knitters for my 5 or so patterns, and thankfully I’ve never had any problems, but now I see it’s benefits!
Pattern: Brionay Scarf
Yarn: Cascade Eco +
Needles: US 7 / 4.5mm, US 10 1/2 / 6.5 mm
I feel ultra silly for blogging about a definite winter accessory, but it is what it is. I’ll appreciate it’s existence about 7 months from now!
The design is very simple and yet has a great effect. It’s done in a bulky weight yarn and I chose Cascade Eco+ because it’s a LOT of yardage in one skein. I didn’t have a lot of colours to choose from at my LYS, but seeing as I have a thing for green, and this was one of “my” greens, it was an easy choice.
