I'm sure there is/are patterns listed here or links for hand-knitted tights, but I could not find them in the searches.


Does anyone out there have a pattern or directions to knit footless women's tights?  I had a few pair back in the day and having just learned to knit I'd love to make some.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I haven't made these, but this is a leggings pattern that says you knit to fit your body (try on as you go). I saw it on ravelry-- there are more tights patterns on there too.

Thank you so much, Ookpik!

I looked at both patterns and yep, that's what I wanted. 

Back in the 80's I brought several pair and wore them to dance/aerobics classes, under skirts with boots and with ultra-Baggy sweaters.

Now I want them to wear under my big floppy fleece tunics at night when I'm knitting on the couch in front of the TV...they're just as warm, but less tangly than a throw or afghan!

Thanks again!
