. . . Blueberry legwarmers . . .

These boots are made for walking …

These Blueberry legwarmers are perfect for a nature walk in the cold seasons, or – as someone suggested – for biking.

But I feel they could do well in a couch too, with a good book and a cup of tea or a glass of wine 😀

They feature lacey leaves, bobbly blueberries, some cable knitting, ribbing, an I-cord and small pompoms to finish… (how to pompom here)

Sizes
The broken rib pattern is quite stretchy and fits easily many sizes.
S/M/L to fit circumference calf : ± 31 / 35 / 39 cm (± 12¼ / 13¾ / 15½ “)
Finished circumference unstretched : ± 27 / 30 / 34 cm (± 10½ / 11¾ / 13½ “)
Finished height as pictured = ± 35 cm (13¾”).
Can easily be made longer by working more repeats.

What you’ll need
worsted weight or two strands of fingering weight held together
± 250 to 350 m / 275 to 380 yards
fingering weight
leftovers in a matching or contrasting color for the I-cord and the pompoms
4.5 mm (US 7) circular needle or 5 double pointed needles
3 mm (US 2½) circular needle for the Estonian braid
two 2.5 mm (US 1½) double pointed needles for the I-cord
tapestry needle
2 markers

Gauge
The row gauge is not important: the legwarmers can be made as long as desired by working more repeats.
The berries and leaves pattern (21 sts) unblocked = 11 cm / 4¼”.
Broken rib pattern unstretched: 22 sts = 10 cm / 4”.
