I've been creating things since I can remember. I have done all kinds of needlecraft, knitting, crochet, but as a rule I keep coming back to knitting. It is my favorite craft so far. I have created my own patterns since I started knitting as a child. A few years ago I learned how to write them down so I can share them with more knitters. Even though there is a lot of math involved in pattern writing, I enjoy it occasionally. This pattern store is a way for me to share them. Thank you for stopping by.

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.
