Knee-high spats with side button closures. Clever shaping and visual interest are created by a bias motif front panel and Half-Twisted Rib back panel.

Available NOW from Cooperative Press (print and digital) and as a Ravelry download!

These spats are a great instant-gratification knit! Like cozy, funky Victorian legwarmers. Perfect for mixing and matching yarns, buttons and ribbons to match your wardrobe or stash-bust. A clever construction and challenging (as far as ribbing goes) twisted rib keep it interesting, while easy enough for beginning knitters. They can also be finished with elastic under the foot, if you’re not a ribbon gal or guy.
