How To Make Fire Work Leg Warmers



Hola! Again I have an addition to my leg warmer craze. I saw a picture with a pattern online of some like these, but I was out of town when I made them so I didn't have access to the pattern. Because of this, I decided to use the picture I had in my head to just do it, and I did it! Here's what I did:




I used:
1 skein of worsted weight yarn
1 skein (more like half of one) of eyelash yarn
4 Size US 8 dpn's 

Starting at from the ankle up CO 36 sts and distribute evenly onto 3 dpn's and join to work in the rnd
Rnd 1: Work in K1 P1 ribbing for a total of 2"
Next Rnd: Work in stockinette st for a total of 4"
Next Rnd: Change to using the eyelash yarn for two rnds
Next Rnd: Change back to main yarn for a total of 7 rnds
Repaeat the last to rows 2 more times
Next Rnd: Change to using the eyelash yarn for two rows
Next Rnd: Change back to main yarn and work in stockinette st for 4"
Next Rnd: Work in K1 P1 ribbing for 2"
BO loosely or use larger needles




Aren't they darling? They are super warm for these nice snowy days we've been having! Isn't the snow beautiful?!?! It's like a winter wonderland out there! I hope you have a nice holiday season!

Ballet Shrug FREE Pattern



    Here I am AGAIN with a knitted project. I don't know what it is about all this knitting, but I sure have been enjoying it! 

I am so proud of this little pattern! It is just what I need for dance, nice and snug, but also warm. 

Here's how to make your own:
CO 27 sts

Palm:
 k in stockinette st around until piece measures 1.5 in from beg

Thumb Hole:
Begin working stockinette st in rows NOT rnds for 1.5 in

Sleeve:
Begin working in the rnd. K stockinette st for the length of your arm

Back:
Start working in rows instead of rnds like you did with the thumb hole and continue for the length of your back mine was 17"

Second Sleeve:
Work the same as the first sleeve, thumb hole, and palm




TADA!!! You are done! I hope you enjoy! Let me know in comments if you have any questions.
