Here are my Autumn Leg warmers. They are made in Aran weight yarn on a 4.5mm hook. Great for filling the chilly gap in the top of your boots or to smooth out the top of jodhpur style boots.
So here goes in UK terms
Foundation chain: Chain 40, then chain 3 more for the turning chain.
Row 1: 1tr in the 3rd chain from the hook, then 1tr in each stitch to the end of the row.
Row 2: 3ch as turning chain, *1tr in the top of the first treble, then 1tr around the post of the second treble* repeat to form a row of rib.
Row 3: Ch3, make another row of trebles using round the post on every other one using the row below for guidance.
Row 4: Ch1,39dc in every stitch to make the main body of the leg warmer. You need about 28 rows (more if you want long ones.)
Row 5,6,7 as original rib repeat rows 1,2,3
Fasten off and sew up the seam. They take about 100g of aran weight but can also be done in two strands of DK for firmer leg warmers.
Please let me know if there is anything I need to change. I would love to get a link to a pair - that would be really exciting. Spotty tights and flowery Dr Martens are optional!
