I made these legwarmers for the Autobahn (an electronic music festival here in Ohio) since I want to wear a skirt and the weather has been a bit chilly as of late. Some of the lattices are four wide instead of three due to a miscount in my beginning chain. I would've started over but then I wouldn't have them done in time for the concert, heh. I'm really proud of how they turned out, especially since the pattern is my own. I'm thinking of doing some more in different colors so I can wear them to work, will be sure to chain the right amount this time, hehe! Anyways, on with the pictures. The first one looks kinda brown, but the color is black like in the second pic.


It's really hard to take decent pictures of your own legs, lol.

Edit: They actually were (to my surprise!) quite warm, I'm sure it wouldn't be great to wear them when it's super windy and cold, but for the fall they work out great!

Edit: Pattern is now on my new website! Come and get it: http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=1

Wow, thanks everybody! I work at Kohl's and Candies was selling a pair of pink mohair leg warmers that were all lattice-y like that. They weren't too expensive, but I didn't really want pink hairy legwarmers, so I made them out of some spare Bernat super value I had laying around (I think it's a tad softer than super saver). They work up super fast, I made them both in four days crocheting mostly during class, and it took me three tries to figure out how I wanted to do the first one, hehe. I think they'd be cool in Homespun or Simply Soft (can you tell I'm a cheapo college student, lol). I think I'm going to attempt writing up a pattern these next few days, if anyone would be interested. Thanks again for your complements (and for ignoring my super messy room)!

Don't hesitate, write the pattern down, it IS absolutely cute and it DOES interest many of us out here!
I was wondering what to do with the kilometers of fork lace I've been crocheting, but now I know: a pair of lattice legwarmers!

thank you for sharing! Grin
