Thank you Smiley

I love love love these! So far, I haven't been gutsy enough to knit anything that wasn't a square/rectangle. I think I'm going to have to throw caution to the wind and attempt these!
Do it!!! they are so fun to make and super rewarding!

Sorry I meant yarn weight. As in is it a worsted weight, a fingering, a dk etc? Some yarns say on the ball band and others don't. Some even have a numbering system so that it's easier to substitute one for another.
But I may be able to figure something out! I think if I can get the same amount of stitches per inch in crochet that the pattern has in knit then I"ll know what yarn to use. Smiley
sorry, i'm pretty dense when it comes to this stuff, but my yarn said 4-ply knitting worsted. is that what you meant? i hope i helped, if not, sorry. good luck!

Out of curiosity what thickness is the yarn you used for these? I don't order yarn online and I can't find the brand in the pattern in the stores near me.
I was also wondering if you used the exact same size needles or used a different size?
I'm contemplating how to convert to something similar in crochet and this will help greatly. Smiley

I love your legwarmers and have been trying to come up with an alternative to boots so I can keep wearing my flats and fakenstocks. Smiley
Thickness??? i'm not quite sure what you mean, but i used Bucilla 100% wool, it was just what i had at the time. i'm sure you could use anything you wanted, as long as it was the correct gauge. but wool is probably warmer. . .i used size US 8 needles instead of size 7. i was worried that they would come out too big, but it seemed to turn out fine, and since the I-cord holds them up, the fit around your calf can be adjusted. hopefully i've helped you and i hope you are successful in converting this pattern  Smiley

how long did it take you to make these? My grandma knits I want to request a pair for my birthday!
these took me about 2-3 weeks, but that was just when i had time.  i'm sure they could be knit faster Smiley
