Leggy Accessory Patterns for Fall/Winter

For those of you that don’t know, like a lot of people I am a 120% Fall/Winter person, and even though Mother Nature has decided it’s 91 degrees in the shade all August, that’s a stupid ass decision and I’ve elected to ignore it. 

In preparation for my absolute favorite time of year, I’ve started compiling some potential knits for Fall. Last year/earlier this year boot socks/cuffs and thigh high knit stockings were everywhere. I’ve decided I’m going to get in on this super cute leg accessory action as cheaply as possible because I’ll probably be over this trend by mid-January. 

Anyway here are a few of the FREE and spiffy patterns up on Ravelry that you guys might want to consider: 

  • Thigh High Footless Socks- I’m not an adept sock knitter, so these really jumped out at me as a way to avoid all the things I don’t feel 100% sure of when knitting regular socks. Mostly stockinette, from Lion Brand (they also have the exact same pattern but with stripes listed separately for some reason?)
  • Twist Stirrup Boot Socks- These fingering gauge boot socks are fairly simple, with easier-than-they-look cables throughout. From Vogue Knitting’s Free Pattern Library.
  • Spiral Legwarmers- These legwarmers feature a simple lace eyelet design. The pattern was written for Caron Simply Soft, so they’re definitely the least costly of the bunch.
  • Some Cloudy Day- These (relatively) simple legwarmers, from super-popular Tiny Owl Knits, are perfect in your favorite worsted yarn. And there are a ton of projects so lots of notes and alterations to shop around between. 
  • Leg Warmers- Fairly straightforward, these legwarmers are designed to make the most of all 220 yards of Cascade 220, (great for a stray skein in a lovely color that isn’t enough for larger projects) but would be a worthwhile, simple knit in any yarn. 

Let me know which you guys like! I’d love to see your projects and FOs :)

I think I’m going to spend the night unwinding this sweater and putting together my fall/winter music.

I was about to frog this sweater for yarn and I went to double check the content tag (to see if it’s worth unraveling). Never worn and a little cashmere? hell yeah!
