Pattern: Lolita Legs
Yarn: Cascade Yarns, Fixation (98.3% cotton, 1.7% elastic) 2 balls for size small and I only had about 6" leftover
Mods: I followed the pattern until I got to the leg portion, I just continued from there in Fishnet Patt 1 until piece measured 1" less than the measurement from heel to calf.( I also noted here how many pattern repeats I did so each leg would be identical. Count the holes) Then I did 1 set of increases on the back center of leg as follows -
needle 1:*YO, K2tog*
needle 2:*YO, K2tog* (4times)M1, YO, K2tog, (this is where the back center if leg would be, and it may be in a different place if you are much taller than I am) YO, K2tog, M1,*YO, K2tog* (4times)
needle 3:*YO, K2tog*
next row: K across
next row: needle 1:*YO, skp*
needle 2:*YO, skp* (4times)M1, K, YO, skp, (this is where the back center if leg would be, and it may be in a different place if you are much taller than I am) YO, skp, K, M1,*YO, skp* (4times)
needle 3:*YO, skp*
next row: K across
Continue working in fishnet pattern 1 until piece measures 2" below the knee (again note number of pattern repeats). Work 2 sets of increases, like above but make sure that the increases are on the center back of leg. This time mine happened to occur between needle 2 and needle 3.
Work Fishnet pattern 1 three more times.
*K,P* rib across 18 rows
eyelet row:*YO, K2tog*
K across next three rows and BO all stitches.
well, that seems about clear as mud...
