After the holiday season I decided to take a break from knitting as much as possible as fast as possible. I’ve been knitting a lot of new projects like these easy leg-warmers. This pattern would work for sock and fingering-weight yarn.
To knit this pair in a size small I divided the available Madelinetosh “Tosh Merino Light” yarn in two by weight. Cast on 84 stitches using size 1 double-pointed needles. Join work for knitting in the round and continue in a 2 x 2 rib. Knit until enough yarn remains for casting off. Repeat for second piece and use a ruler or count stitches to make sure they are the same length.
