FOs, Free Pattern and more

So much to show you all so little time. Our Steiner school is having its' annual Bazaar this weekend so as soon as I have posted this I need to run out of here. As it is I am posting rather late this morning because I didn't finish the leg-warmers yesterday as I had hoped (was on a really cool outing, will tell you more this weekend!) so I had to finish them up this morning ....

Let me share my Simple Leg-Warmer pattern with you first. 

I apologize, they have not yet been blocked or embellished as I would like them to be, but I will share an updated progress report next week.


For the pattern I used 200g Drops Andes. 
If you want stripes like above, 1 ball of each colour or otherwise 2 balls of the same colour.

Cast on 40 stitches evenly on size 8mm (US 11) DPNs.
Knit as follows: *k4,p4* until the end of the round.
Continue with this pattern throughout. 

Either knit 60 rounds and then cast off if you have knit with one colour, or change colours every 10 rounds - 6 stripes in all. 

Cast off rib-wise.
And there you have the pattern.

Enjoy!

Now onto my FOs for this week.

Firstly my Cowl from last week:
Squishy, thick and extremely warm :)

Next up, I knit Kay a Capucine, out of Drops Andes, for the cold weather, turned out so cute, she doesn't take it off ;) 
Took me all of 2 hours to complete!!




And lastly for today, I am so excited to show you my new bag that I have for sale over in my Etsy store:






It has 2 inner sections, 1 section under the flap with Velcro closures, and an outside pocket with zip.
I would love to hear what you think about it.
I will be sharing with all my wonderfully talented Link-Ups today :)

  5. Great FOs!

    What sort of cast on/off do you use for your legwarmers? I usually use Jenny's Stretchy Slip-knot Cast On and Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off but I'm always looking for new methods!
