I made these to try to encourage myself to wear skirts in the winter, something I have been avoiding since before high school! (so far it hasn't worked, but it's been snowing/rainy ever since I finished them)


And here they are not on me, and with dramatic lighting to make the pattern show:


I copied the cable pattern from a tiny picture in a 2 year old add for a men's sweater.  I forget what company it was and unfortunately the picture has disappeared, but I was so happy to finally figure out some way to work these cables into a project! It's made in very cheep acrylic yarn (becoming a theme for my knitting posts) but they're still very warm.   If anyone would like, I can attempt to write up a pattern (with improvements...)! Any comments or critique are welcome!  Thanks for looking!

i like those.  they look nice and warm and fuzzy.  your gold flats are awesome, they look really good with the legwarmers.

Ooh - very nice. I love the cable - it'd be good if you could post a chart or directions for that.
