(6) Name: 'Knitting : Navajo

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • increases
  • color work

Pattern Description:

The Navajo pattern is a quirky and colorful legging/leg warmer. Knit in a lightweight breathable cotton, these leggings are comfortable, soft and washable. They are perfect for keeping little babies' legs cozy in the colder months or fashionably layering over tights of jeans for older girls.

This pattern uses 4 colors of Knit Pick's Simply Cotton Sport, but multiple pairs of leggings can be made with those four skeins because of the minimum yardage that is needed (perfect for making matching pairs in different sizes!)

Pattern includes helpful photos, the color work chart and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
