I told you all it was pattern season! Yep, this is number 4 in so many weeks. But this is the last of it for a while. Except for...well...just keep an eye to the soon to be live Knitty Deep Fall 2012. Whew! So here's my adaptation of Heart of the Lotus for the Legs. I call them Lotus Legwarmers (such a stretch). The pattern is written for S, M, L with sizing tips for long, short, and multiple tiers (see the rust colored one below). It's a fitted, shaped legwarmer that stays put if you want it to, or scrunches without getting sloppy. It would be a cinch to make it longer to come up over the knee, to knit it on larger needles for a slouchy style, you know...endless variations. The merlot colored ones here are knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina in Venetian. Scrunched rust colored variation is in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Sequoia. Just like Heart of the Lotus, this pattern is written for fingering and sport weight yarns. You can purchase this pattern here.
