These legwarmers were made specifically for a ballet dancer. The cotton knit very tight makes them stiff, which is great for ballet, but probably not fun for everyday. I chose cotton because it does not slip on tights, so they stay on even while dancing. Though this is still my daughter's favorite pair, I'm not sure I would do it again in the same yarn; it is quite hard on your fingers. So unless you are planning to make this for a ballet dancer, I would recommend using a wool blend.
rib sts: 1"x1" = 6 sts x 6 rows
stockinette sts: 1"x1"= 5 sts x 7 rows
I've been creating things since I can remember. I'm always happy when I start a new project. For some of my patterns please visit RekaKnits: http://rekaknits.blogspot.com
