Extra chic leg warmers, equally capable of a day in the city or a hike through fall foliage. While the pattern is written in one size, these are easily adjustable for custom sizing by casting on a few extra stitches for the waffle stitch portion, or knitting fewer rows for a shorter length. Details -Knit entirely in one piece, these legwarmers conceal ribbing around the calf beneath the cuff to help create the perfect fit, while ribbing around the bottom edge helps eliminate baggy ankles for a cleaner line. For added comfort, instructions are included on how to easily add some 1/4 inch elastic for those who appreciate a little extra stretch. -Decorative buttons eliminate the need for button holes without interfering with ease of use. -The final product has a high-elastic quality, making it perfect for easy customization.

Red Herring Knits is the culmination of the idea that when a knitter creates a sweater or other knit design, the tangible process involving yarn and needles is a diversion from what is actually happening. Every design begins with a concept; an idea of how it should look, fit feel. What thoughts and emotions it should evoke. This leads to a technical evaluation. How do the sleeves fit into the armhholes? What size gauge is required? Where does the shaping happen? What stitch patterns are used? The final stage is execution, the actual knitting, hopefully culminating in a finished object. Knitters find the above process so familiar as to be unnoticeable, and most knitters have probably dabbled with design in one form or another. But I like to take knitting one step further.
