Ballerina Leg Warmers...

It seems that Japan is  in all our thoughts... I hope those in the Noro factories are safe and sounds.....


Made lovely set of leg-warmers for my sweet dancer Sophie. I love Noro, unfortunately my favorite LYS does not stock it.  The good news is that I have quite a reasonable stash from olden days.
Used about 1 skein of Kureyon(crayon in Japanese)
and less than 1  skein of  Kocheran(delicious furry yarn)
These two yarns are different thickness however they knit  up  fine in the ribbing...

I used a US6 4mm needle cast on 36  stitches, knit2 purl 1 ribbing all around until long enough to cover ankle to knee. I  chose to cast on the same point on the Bright Kureyon,on the more neutral Kocheran, ignored where the colors fell.

  1. I don't understand what you did here..did you just knit with one yarn and switch to the other? Or alternate? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just so happen to have one skein of each of these yarns in my stash!
