Garden State Knitters
Hi! This is my first post to NJ-Knits and even though I just moved to FL my knitting roots are in Jersey ^_^ Here is a pair of leg warmers that I made for myself, the pattern, and a question about the pattern.
OK, i'm a beginner, so hopefully someone can help me with a question about ribbing. The pattern calls for casting on 34 stitches and to then knit a 2-stitch rib as follows:
Row 1: K2 *P2, K2 rep from *to end.
Row 2: P2 *K2, P2 rep from *to end.
Someone told me that, if I wanted to adjust the pattern, I would have to be able to divide the cast on number by 8. Is this true? and why? Thank you!
I love the idea of knitting for your friends, like we are in elementary school and making friendship bracelets. I made all my best friends leg warmers for Christmas in colors to match them. Then I made a pair for me that I'm gonna wear out tonight!
I used two different kinds of yarn, which were specifically asked for in the pattern. 45% nylon/32% wool/13% mohair/10% acrylic:
53% new wool/47�rylique:
one last pair. =/ procrastination:
and me sewing up my first project that's not a scarf^_^
