FO Friday #39 - Lovely Lavender Legwarmers

Happy Friday everyone!

Well, I knew there was no chance this week that I would be able to upstage Doodlebug and her darling vest FO from last week.

Then it occurred to me... some matching legwarmers would be verrryyy cute with that vest!

Lovely Lavender Legwarmers

Pattern: Of my own design, inspired by the Milo vest

Essentially, I cast on 40 stitches in the round over a larger size needle. I knit 2 x 2 ribbing for 10 rows then switched to stockinette with a simple horseshoe cable, matching the one of the vest. I finished with another 10 rows of rib and then cast off over a larger size needle. Total length about 20cm.

Yarn: 40g Cascade 220 Superwash (still)
I have no idea what I'm going to do with the last 40 grams.

Needles: 4.5mm and 4.0mm

Doodlebug will make one more appearance next Friday. Then, it will be back to knitting for other people's children ; )

Warm weekend wishes from my house to yours.

Cheers, Nikki
