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.

Announcing Knit Collage Yarns:

As many of you know, several of my best art yarn companies have quit their businesses.  For months, I’ve been searching for a new partnership and found Amy with Knit Collage handmade art yarns.  She provides us with wonderful free pattern support with each ball purchase and we hope to add many of our own patterns as well – each free with a ball purchase.  Here is just a glimpse of her amazing yarns.  She has taught the women herself in Punjab India to make each of these yarns and the selection is fabulous.  Our first order is here and we would just love to keep reordering if you support us!  You will be able to search our website shortly!  Criss and I have been busily doing our updates!

Food for Life – Grow your own Sprouts!

Did you know you could grow your own delicious and healthy bean sprouts in a unique container that allows you to take it with you or leave on your counter top? In the past (many of us did this 30 years ago), you used a Mason jar and put the sprouts up in the dark in your cupboard in water to grow.  I would forget they were up there so many times and ruined them.  We have great sprouting equipment to choose from that you can use over and over again – they create a dark enough environment to grow perfectly.  Just rinse them in water twice a day and in 3 or 4 days they are ready to eat – no mess or fuss!  Purchase the small Easy sprouter if you’re by yourself or the larger kitchen sprouter for the whole family.

When you drop in, just ask if we have any sprouts growing that you can taste!  They’re amazing!
