Basic Skills Necessary:

  • simple twisted cable stitch
  • knit
  • purl
  • use of circular needles
  • K2, P2 ribbing
  • Yarn over eyelet stitch

Pattern Description:

These easy knit up footless leggings can be worn with a longer top or under slacks in the winter. They knit up quickly with worsted weight yarn. They are one size only but have lots of stretch to them and an elastic waist. Leg length can be adjusted below the knee with stocking stitch rows. Knitting starts in the round at the waist and separates into stocking stitch back and forth to complete the legs so there is a seam on the inside of the leg. Instructions are included for cable stitch and eyelet stitch. You will want to knit a few pair of these comfy cozy leggings. Use any worsted weight pure wool, acrylic or fancy metallic for evening wear. Depending on the type of worsted they can take 2-3 50gm balls of yarn. They are so versatile. Great leg warmers for exercising, jazzersize classes and jogging. And they'll never fall down. I'm fed up with knee high ending up around my ankles. These leggings fit!
