FO: Lace Legwarmers


Raveled here!

Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Six
Needles: 3.0 mm / US 2.5
Source: CEY website, by Pam Allen
Overall: I love them!

Daylight time in Winter is short. So short, that I waited at least 2 weeks before I could take pictures of my lovely Lace Legwarmers! So after school, I grab the camera and took advantage of the last sunshine rays...


They're perfect over leggings, with a short winter skirt, or even with skinny jeans!



I did follow the pattern throughout: I did one cuff 1.5" long, 8 chart repeats, and then another 1" long cuff. The pattern says to do increases at some point. I didn't need to! I used smaller needles than recommended and they ended just the right size! And if I would've follow the pattern, I would've run out of yarn... now, both legwarmers weight exactly 50g each!



I would totally do them again, if I hadn't so many things to do, for school and knitting...
