Super Easy and Cute Country Chic Legwarmers

We LOVE these legwarmers, Knit Collage’s Daisy Chain floral yarn adds a touch of country to them with zero fuss. Daisy Chain yarn is slightly less bulky than their other hand spun yarns, which help make the leg warmers not too chunky when worn.

Daisy Chain yarn was born out of Amy’s eternal love for daisy chains, flower crowns and all the wonderful feelings connected to them. Bits of tea-dyed lace, hand-printed Jaipur fabrics and daisy trims are hand spun into each colorway. Of course, you’ll also find their signature sparkles and pretty hand-carded heathered colors. Even though the raw materials are the same, no two skeins are completely alike because of the intense handmade process that goes into each and every skein

For this pattern, you have two options depending on the size and features you want for your legwarmer. If you want a 13 Inch Legwarmer you will need two skeins of yarn, but if you want a legwarmer with a stirrup heel and 19″ long for scrunching, then you will need 3 skeins of yarn.

The original pattern calls for four sets of Double Pointed Needles in Sizes 8, 9, 10, and 11, which we have available from Clover in Bamboo 7 Inches or get the Knit Picks 6 Inch Nickel Plated Set. 

I can barely work with double pointed needles, which I find a bit complicated, so we’ve gone ahead and made a video to show you how you can actually make these on circular needles using the magic loop technique. We use Knit Picks Interchangeable needles, so when its time to change needles you just keep your knitting on the cord, replace the tips, and Bob’s your Uncle, you’re ready for the next round.

Introducing Knit Collage Yarns and Patterns

Knit collage new yarns and patternsWe are super excited to announce that we have received our first order of beautiful yarns from Knit Collage. These yarns are handspun in Punjab by women who painstakingly craft every detail of the yarn, from hand dyeing, to hand carding, crocheting tiny flower embellishments and spinning the yarn together with all of its trimmings. Amy Small, founder of Knit Collage, began with her love of spinning, selling her yarn to local stores, she participated in her first trade show, and that’s when things took off. She now works with several designers that really know how to use her yarns to their fullest potential. Here are some of our favorite designs, and when you buy the yarn from us you can get the pattern for free!

Of course, the sides are interchangeable, which means you’re really getting 2 pillow designs with this one! 1 skein of Pixie Dust & 1 skein of Sister will knit up into a 12”x12” pillow and 2 skeins of each will knit up into an 18”x18” pillow.

These perfect leg warmers are adorable in Knit Collage’s Daisy Chain yarn! The yarn is slightly less bulky than their other handspun yarns, which help make the leg warmers not too chunky when worn.

In this pattern, they give you 2 options- a 2 skein option and a 3 skein option. The 2 skein leg warmer has no stirrup heel detail and is shorter in length- 13″. The 3 skein leg warmer has the stirrup detail and is much longer- 19″ in total length, so great for scrunching.
