FKD-LGL Lady Grey Legwarmers

These legwarmers were inspired by my early dancing days. Since I didn’t yet knit, I would alter commercial legwarmers, or even knee socks, by cutting heels and toes out as I required. Of course, the result was rather ragged and mostly fell apart. Lady Grey will stay prettily on your feet while you dance the night away.

The Lady Grey Legwarmers are constructed from the bottom up to the cuff. An I-cord tie and optional pom poms are worked later and added as desired.

The Lady Grey pattern comes with two variations, with or without “sugar.” If you like your warmers with a touch of extra sweetness then follow the first variation with instructions for adding the “Sugar Star” motif. For a milder twist you can “hold the sugar” and follow the second set of instructions. Either way you choose, the fit and general stitch count remains the same, so you can cast on and get going before you make your final decision.

(This design is included in the Sweet Treats Collection booklet for a discount price!-- Ed.)
