Lisa Myers, coauthor of Knit So Fine (Interweave, 2008), visits with Eunny about the unique construction of her legwarmers. The thin yarn used for the legwarmers allows for custom shaping. Plus, the traveling-stitch of the legwarmers is unique and detailed, inspired from traditional Austrian socks.

I used baby yarn - about fingering weight.  It worked out perfectly

Reply to Taylorafox:

Just ignore what looks like stiches between the 4 stitches and the middle stitches on each side.  It's confusing, but I finally figured out that they are not really stitches at all.  The increasing and decreasing is happening in the middle.  I think those are there to keep the chart from getting bigger.

If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help.

Another confusing element is the fact that when I looked up the gauge for the yarn used in the pattern - Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport - they suggest using a size 5 needle with this yarn, while the pattern calls for a size 3.  How can someone accurately substitute yarn if the pattern doesn't even use the yarn in the way suggested by the manufacturer?

I just knitted a gauge swatch for this pattern, and I'm way off.  I'm using a substitute sport weight (#2) yarn, and size 3 needles, but I'm getting 26 stitches per 4" rather than the called for 37 stitches per 4".  Even if I went down in my needle size, the given gauge seems impossibly tight for this yarn weight (especially considering that I am right in the range of the proper gauge given for that yarn).  Is there a different way of counting rows and stitches in reverse stockinette stitch?  Or is the difference in yarn really making that much of a difference in gauge (even though the yarns are supposedly the same weight)?

I tried this pattern and I'm having trouble reading the lozenge chart. It shows many M's and MP's but the pattern says you only end up increasing 4 stitches from the beginning of the piece to the end of the lozenge chart. Heres what I'm wondering: Instead of physically making a stitch am I supposed to start my chart stiches sooner (i.e. include more of the side stitches into the chart to make it look like I shifted all the stitches.) If so then where do the actual 4 'made stitches' come from?  Anyone know what I'm doing wrong or if I'm reading the chart incorrectly?

You really don't have to pay for the ones that are free.

You can just click 'Download Now', tbh.

Whya is it that when ever it says free patterns you find that at the end you have to pay a certain amount for you to get the issue of the pattern
