(Just wondering what kind of traffic I will get on my page with this kind of headline. Klick away, it's all very moral around here.)
To keep these tiny legs warm.
(And to make a few pom-poms, too.)
I guess, our favorite colour is all the more due to the season. Luckily I have just enough leftovers from this lovely project.
They look quite warm and happy in their new pants.
Two of these are knit in the classic version, one has got an elegant touch to it.
They are part of Ronja's Christmas Outfit, all handmade.
And then, of course, when Luna saw the Mustard Pom-Poms and Tights, she wanted some of her own as well.
Pretty straight forward really, but to spare you the maths, I will suggest a few numbers for Jess Brown Doll Legs (using lace weighted yarn and matching set of dp needles):
Cast on 18 sts,
divide onto 4 (or 3...) needles
and join the round.
Knit in the round in stockinette stitch
and increase by 1 st 4 times every 4 cm.
(On the first needle, k1, M1R, knit until end of round).
So, by 16 cm you will have 22 sts on your needles
and continue knitting these in stockinette stitch
until you reach the desired length of the tights.
(Mine are 20 and 22 cm long, I like the way they curl up at the bottom.)
Weave in ends.
Have fun knitting!
