Notes

I love this pattern. This is my 3rd pair and it’s great. I plan to make more.

I loved the yarn when I was making them - it’s lovely and so soft. They were so cute when my daughter put them on! The problem is that the yarn does not retain it’s shape - at all. Within 1 hour, these legwarmers were completely sagging and twice the width they’d started out as. It’s sooo disappointing! I specifically checked with the staff at my LYS to make sure it would keep it’s shape. This hasn’t happened with the other, wool, yarns I’ve made these with. My middle girl can’t wear all wool, so I needed something blended. This was the only option that wasn’t a super drapey (linen or mostly cotton) blend. I’m hoping they are still wearable, but we’ll see. I definitely should have sized waaaayyy down to counter the stretch factor.
